MDA LOCK-UP

I'm just curious if there are any other sploofusers participating in the MDA Lock-up this year.

I received a phone call on Monday that I had been "suggested for lock-up" but the person didn't say who they were - I was told they were in "witness protection"!

Would love suggestions on how to achieve the bail that was set for me from others who have participated.

You know, it's a fundraiser where they "lock you up" in a fake jail in a gym or somewhere, and you have to get your friends to "bail" you out, all money going to MDA.

I'm pretty sure it's voluntary, silly.

in our home town.. most of the elected officials, the bankers, business owners and other prominent citizens were taken by deputies to a mock jail cell set up at the local AM radio station. the local phone cooperative set up a bank of temporary phones for the 'jailbirds' to use. they had to call anyone and everyone till the had enough pledges to cover their bail. most were out in an hour.. others sadly(lol) had to stay most of the day. as the morning DJ i had the pleasure of telling who was in lock-up and also interviewed a few kids that suffered with MD.

it was fun and our county of about 12,000 people raised several thousand $$$ for MDA each year.

Well it ticked me off just a little because the person who did it chose to remain annonymous - they asked me for referrals as well - and said I had the choice to let them know who I was - which if I had done so, I would have...but I participate in the Relay for Life each year, and although I've not been locked up before (well for a good cause), I have donated in the past and MDA is a worthy organization.

They let me set up a link online where I can send friends/family/clients as well - have been trying to find a picture of me to place "behind bars" - but so far no luck...so not there yet - so being able to do the link is helpful - but Canton is a small town and there are quite a few people being locked up...which is why I was wondering if anyone had done it and had bright ideas.

Apparently I will have to call people on my cell phone as well if I don't have it all raised by the time they "come to take me away". They did tell me they would feed me too Kinda of scared to find out what - hope it's not that corned beef from one of those other threads!

I was surprised that I got the call as well, since it is usually the more prominent citizens that get locked up. I'm suspecting that since I did so much band fundraising this year, and we just had our big gala & auction (I was in charge of the auction) that someone decided I'd be perfect for the lock up or something like that - or maybe someone really thinks I deserve to be in jail LOL!!!
