Bo Knows Charity (Jersey Giveaway)

Would you like to win a size 52 XL Bo Jackson jersey? Sewn numbers and never worn. It is what I like to call a replithentic jersey.

Bo Jackson grew up poor, so what better way to give away his jersey than raise money for the poor?

My goal is to raise at least $200 for Wordvision. Not a lofty goal, but I hope the jersey hanging in my closet can do some good. A few chickens, a goat, and a few fruit trees and a small community has resources that could ultimately lift them out of poverty.

I’d love to be blown away by the Raider Nation. Cancelled your season tickets because of the lockout? Put that money to good use helping people who really need the help.

Starting today, for every $1 you give to World Vision you get one entry into the raffle to win the jersey. If you sponsor a child for $35 a month, I’ll give you 50 entries and post you and your sponsored child on the blog.

Donate a goat, after all, wouldn’t Bo Jackson have been the G.O.A.T if not for the injury that ended his career? Maybe you want to give a rabbit, because Bo Jackson was more agile than a rabbit or footballs (soccer) to promote sports.

Here is the link to World Vision‘s giving center.

Forward to me a screenshot, receipt or other proof you donated to Chris@Raidersblog.com and your entry will be logged on this Google spreadsheet.

Contest ends in June 30th at 11:59 PM Pacific.

Please be kind enough to post this to Twitter and Like it on Facebook.
