Let's go above and beyond and show Leodis, the Bills Organization, and the country that we are a classy organization and classy fan base. One action is not representative of the bunch.
I was thinking about different ways that we could respond as a collective fanbase and rally around our player and our team and maybe make a little positive out of a negative situation. What better way to show support then to make a group donation to a charity that Leodis has been involved in since he has been a Bill: Kids Escaping Drugs. Here is a write-up of Leodis' previous involvement.
As Chris Ellis says of his teammate, "Leodis had been doing the Kids Escaping Drugs program all year last year, and it was something I wanted to be a part of," Ellis said. "Nothing like this was available where I grew up, so it’s a great chance to give back to some of the kids in Buffalo."
I have set up a group donation page on Firstgiving.com for the Alcohol Drug Dependency Services Foundation, which is the parent organization for the Kids Escaping Drugs program. Firstgiving is a great site that allows people to pool funds to make a collective donation. If you are hesitant about donating online, take a look at their recent press:
I set the goal at $500. I think even this relatively modest amount would be an awesome show of support and really send a message that we appreciate our team and their part in the Buffalo community. Here is the link:
Please chip in and spread the word! Let's turn this negative into a positive!
