Several times in the past, TechSideline.com has raised money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association by participating in the MDA’s yearly “Lock-up.” We have raised over $10,000 in the past, and we’re back again this year! This year’s event is on October 30th, so we have less than a week to reach our target goal of $2,400.

The event is the 2012 New River Valley MDA Lock-up. Yours truly (TSL GM Will Stewart) be thrown into a maximum security jail (cleverly disguised as the Christiansburg Hampton Inn), and the only way I can get out is to raise money for “bail” for MDA. I’m counting on you, TSL’s readers and subscribers, to donate enough money to get me out.

This is a fundraiser, of course, one that we have participated in several times, and it was a big success, bringing in over $10,000 total. TSL has gotten so huge over the years, that with the number of people we reach, raising money for charitable causes should be easy. We really think that TSL’s vast, generous readership can make a lot of difference in the community, and this is your chance to prove us right.

This year, we have set a modest goal of $2,400.

It’s very simple: just click on the link below to make a donation and help me get out of jail that day. Every dollar donated by TSL’s readership through the link below will be collected together and credited to my “bail” (TechSideline.com’s donation to the MDA) and will be used to help LOCAL MDA families. This particular lockup event is to benefit the New River Valley area.

Here are some other notes and details:

  • The link below enables you to donate via credit card only (VISA, MC, AMEX, and Discover).
  • All donations are tax deductible (by you, not me or TechSideline.com) as a charitable contribution.
  • My bail goal of $2,400 is very modest, and the TSL faithful should be able to donate much, much more than that. If every TSL reader donates just $10 … holy smokes, that would be a lot of money.
  • For details on what your donation will be used for, see the contribution link below

Please contribute, even if it’s a small amount — individuals, consider donating $25 or more, and businesses, please consider donating $100 or more.

Every time TSL has participated, we have been the top donor of the event. When I walk into jail on October 30th, I want it to be as the top donor in this lockup event yet again, and the money won’t be donated in my name; it will be donated in the name of the TechSideline.com community.

Thanks for your help!

  1. I have always been a fan of Techsideline.com, but today I am an even bigger fan of this website. You are involved in a cause that is very close to my heart —- my 5-year old son Will has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Although we live in Florida, my family can attest to the wonderful things that the local MDA chapters do to support families like ours. Thank you to Will Stewart, the Techsideline.com team, and all loyal Hokie fans for supporting a wonderful cause! Please open up your hearts and wallets to help the MDA find a cure that ends muscular dystrophy. Make a muscle and make a difference! Go Hokies!!!

  2. I knew this would not be easy.
    My company does match but how do they contribute? Also they asked me for a W9. I don’t have a W9 for MDA How do I get one.
