Join APX & Friends for Autism Walk This Sat.
Sun., May. 27. 2007 4:26pm EDT
Hello, this is J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX again.
As I mentioned about a month ago, the Pittsburgh Walk for Autism will be held this coming Saturday morning, June 2. My youngest daughter, Kelly, has autism, and so I don't want to miss this event. Consequently, I'll be driving through the night from our show in Chattanooga TN to join my family for the walk, and then I'll fly out from Pittsburgh to join the rest of the band in Oklahoma for our concert Saturday night.
I'm happy to report that a number of fans and friends of ApologetiX will also be walking with us. If you'd like to help us raise money for autism research, there are a few ways you can help:
1. Join a walk. If you'd like to walk with us in Pittsburgh, you can join our team, Kelly's Pride, by going to http://www.autismwalk.org/goto/kellyspride. If you'd like to form your own team or join a walk closer to you, go to http://www.walknowforautism.org.
2. Make a donation. You can make a donation by going to our team page listed above. Donations can be made on behalf of the team or individual team members. Every dollar counts, and even the smallest donations make a difference.
3. Purchase "Kelly's Pride" merchandise. My wife, Lisa, has set up a store on Cafepress to sell team merchandise and other autism-awareness products. All proceeds from logo items will be donated to the Pittsburgh autism walk. You can visit her shop at http://www.cafepress.com/kellyspride.
Whatever you can give will help! I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on our progress.
Thank you and God bless you,
