I’m going to keep this short because I’m preparing for a trip to do disaster relief in Louisiana. Simply put; the folks in Livingston Parish need a lot of help. They had massive flooding and the vast majority of their homes are unlivable. Unfortunately, the media continues to follow the motto of “if it bleeds, it leads” and so with the election and the massive social chaos of the summer, the media has largely ignored the need of these folks.
Caleb Johnson and I have known each other for well over a decade. He’s a great guy and was trying to go on this trip with me to help those folks rebuild. Unfortunately, he has some obligations which are preventing him from going but he does want to help. So here is the deal: Have you ever wanted to hang out with Caleb and the people that he really hangs out with and perhaps have dinner? Well, now is your chance because whoever donates the most (whether it be the items listed or money) to our relief effort by noon on Friday will get to go eat dinner and hang out with me, Caleb, and most likely another of our friends at one of our favorite restaurants, Asheville Pizza. You just have to donate the most and then find your way to lovely Asheville on your own dime (if you don’t already live here) and we’ll take you out to dinner, treat you like an actual person, eat lots of pizza and make all of your friends and associates jealous. Anyone can get a selfy or an autograph. How many people get to hang our and have dinner with a cool rockstar?
So, get cracking on this. Here’s the info on how you can donate to the church that is sponsoring the trip. Here’s the link to donate. All of the proceeds and items will go to Louisiana for flood victims. Lake Hills has been real cool about sponsoring the trip and this is their website. You can also contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Thanks for all of your support. Just be sure to put a note about referencing Caleb on your donations.
