Day 8 Monday December 19, 2011:
8AM was the moment of TRUTH, as the bikes were counted JJO had 135… then 4 more came in from a couple who moved here from Fort Worth the Goal was 102 and he had 139, 27 over his goal… After weighing ALL the Toys for Tots, the total weight was 5,571 pounds… then more toys arrived and the Final weight was 5,802 pounds and a NEW RECORD!
Jammin’ Jimmy Olson & The Breeze is helped give back again this Holiday Season to the families of East Texas by raising almost 3 TONS OF TOYS. JJO of the Breeze Morning Show was in a box in the parking lot of Broadway Square Mall in Tyler where he lived, ate & slept until he raised a Ton of Toys. He was un-shaven, un-bathed and lived in a Box for 8 days. Jimmy raised over a TON OF TOYS for Needy East Texas Kids. He didn’t leave his pod until listeners stopped by the Broadway Square Mall to drop off toys for a boy or a girl to donate to the Marine’s Toys for Tots Drive. Last year he raised over 4,300 lbs of Toys and this year set a NEW RECORD. Last year about 500 families asked for assistance, this year it exceeded 1,800 families that have asked! Jammin’ Jimmy Olson affectionately known as The Boy in the Box was again The Boy in the Box!
WE DID IT!!!
