Philanthropic Request from Mr. The Kingfish

Many who take the time to read this blog, also frequent Jackson Jambalaya.  Kingfish just sent this out:

JJ is raising money for kids at Reimagine Prep to visit the World War II Museum in New Orleans.  Let's be honest.  Kids are going to find history more interesting and fun to study in a museum such as this one than in a book.  However, a visit to this museum cost money.  Many of the students come from disadvantaged backgrounds and never get a real chance to see such history on display at a museum.
 If you wish to donate, you can donate to the Gofundmepage set up for this particular trip.  
If you do not feel comfortable donating online,  send checks to:  
Reimagine Prep
Attn: Kate Cooper
309 W. McDowell Road
Jackson, MS 39204. 
The cost of the trip is $2,500.  25 people donating $100 can get it done.  Thanks for your help.

Here is a link to a JJ blogpost on the topic.

I've been to the WWII museum.  That is because I have the time and means to visit New Orleans on occasion.  The museum is incredible.  For an underprivileged kid who may not have been outside of the Jackson Metro area, a visit to the museum could be life changing.  This is a great thing Kingfish is doing.
