40 Wishes Sent to Jerry...

Jerry's Fund has been donated to Bad Rap Rescue this year & we have been told by Donna Reynolds, one of Bad Rap's Co-founders, that it will be used to help transport dog fighting victims from different states out to them on the west coast for rehabilitation. In addition, Donna also said that she would make sure to send a letter out to Jerry's Mom & sister to let them know that Jerry lives on with the money donated in his name to help dog fighting victims. However, we have some more news we would like to share related to Jerry's 40th birthday...

This image was taken by Marni Guman McNiff on the evening of January 15th as she, Jerry's Mom & Jerry's sister & many other family members sent up 40 Chinese Lantern Wish Balloons to Jerry. While it was simply meant to be a way to celebrate Jerry's 40th, the 40 balloons sent our small town reeling with a multitude of calls to the local police department with reports of UFO sightings.

Quite frankly, this whole event would have made Jerry laugh hysterically & would have been exactly what Jerry would have loved to see on his birthday... you did him proud baby sister LeeAnn!

Here is the story from this week's Newtown Bee:

A Guardian Angel Keeps On Rolling ...

Our friend Jerry was a trailblazer, a visionary... a force to be reckoned with. He loved his bikes & his dogs & he wasn't afraid to defend either. He was strongly against dog fighting & spoke against what michael vick did to his dogs with his dog fighting club known as bad newz kennels.

Jerry was taken way too early from all of us under extremely unfortunate circumstances that could have been prevented. We think he had more work to do here on planet earth - Jerry was everyone's Guardian Angel. Because he was tireless in his efforts to do good works for others while he was with us, we feel he must carry on with good works with his name... so we have created Jerry's Fund. Every year on Jerry's birthday - January 15th - we will donate his fund to a charity that rescues, rehabilitates & re-homes victims of dog fighting - specifically Pit Bull Terriers... Jerry's most beloved breed of dog.

To honor Jerry this year for what would have been his 40th birthday on January 15th, we are collecting funds to donate in his name to Bad Rap Rescue. Bad Rap is the primary charity that went to bat for the vick dogs by rehabilitating them & re-homing them as loving family members - not willing victims in the fighting rings, easily disposed of once no longer deemed fit to fight by vick & his co-conspirators. Jerry's Fund will be earmarked by Bad Rap for use for the victims of dog fighting.

Please consider dropping a few dollars in Jerry's Fund (via the ChipIn link to the right of the screen) for the victims of dog fighting & remember to leave a birthday message after you donate for Jerry's mom, his sister & the rest of his family to read. Jerry's Fund will be electronically donated on the evening of the 15th directly to Bad Rap Rescue. His donation letter will be sent to his mom & his sister.

Thank you for stopping by & taking the time to read about Jerry & the creation of Jerry's Fund.
