Bras, Puppies and Kisses for Ticket Stubs


Dear Y'all,

It’s That Time of Year again! If you’re new here, this is the deal: Once a year, we try to inundate our dear friend, Queen Jan Michaels at CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO—Q105.1 FM, MISS103, 95.5 HALLELUJAH FM, and others here in Jackson, Mississippi, with enough BRAS TO STRETCH ACROSS THE EN-TIRE MISSISSIPPI RIVER AT VICKSBURG! So, gather up all the bras you can from everybody you can and ship ‘em off straightaway to Queen Jan—we get the biggest kick outta seeing her whole office NECK-DEEP in bras—so help us out!

Besides making for some really swell photo ops, both in Jan’s office AND spanning the Mighty Mississipp’—you’ll be helping in two other EXTREMELY SWELL ways: For every bra we collect, the Queenly folks at RIVERWALK HOTEL CASINO in Vicksburg will donate $1 to the American Cancer Society! AND THEN, after we string the bras across the Big River, we take ‘em down and all the gently used ones are donated to WOMEN’S SHELTERS throughout Central Mississippi.

Feel free to decorate them in absolute Queenly Fashion! There will be a SPECIAL DISPLAY AREA for the EMBELLISHED BRAS—so go crazy with the glue gun and the sparklies!


If you’re in the Jackson/Vicksburg area, you can drop off at several locations. For more info, CLICK HERE. Or mail them to JAN MICHAELS, CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO, 1375 BEASLEY ROAD, JACKSON, MS. 39206.

This is FUN—but we know it’s also helping with VERY IMPORTANT WORK—raising awareness and funds for breast cancer and providing much needed “support” to women who have left abusive situations, very often with NOTHING. Your bras can help so much—and this will ALSO give YOU the opportunity to go get yourself some NEW UNDIES—so YAY! Everybody wins!

We did it before—LET’S DO IT AGAIN!

Animal Rescue Fund of Mississippi is in the running again for $50,000 on the

PEPSI REFRESH challenge.

So far, in this month’s contest, we’ve moved ‘em from the 300’s to the 60’s—but between now and Sunday, 31 October 2010 (that's ONLY 12 DAYS!)—we’ve got to get ‘em into the TOP TEN—so PLEASE—take a second every day and vote and spread the word. This contest is FABULOUS—we get to do something totally EFFORTLESS and FREE to ourselves—that will mean literal HAPPY, HEALTHY LIFE over ABANDONMENT and DEATH to so many helpless animals. ARF was founded and is run by our very own Queen TammyPippa and her very own husband, Charles. They have devoted their very lives to this effort to start the ONLY NO-KILL ANIMAL SHELTER in Rankin County, MS. The least WE can do is CLICK HERE and vote by texting 103186 to 73774* once a day to help ‘em win this $50 grand, right? (*Standard text messaging rates apply.)

And while we’re at it, can we just hear a ROUSING CHEER for PEPSI for this awesome project? Unbelievable good work they’re making possible, all over the U. S. Of course, our LOCAL PEPSI BOTTLER—BROWN BOTTLING GROUP—the only soft drink company we ever REALLY loved—is a SPONSOR OF THE SPQ™ MILLION QUEEN MARCH™ WEEKEND, too! Them Pepsi folks, gotta love ‘em!

As y’all know, the DIRECTOR of this wonderful, uplifting film is our very own KILTBOY—known in Hollywood as “Randall Wallace.” He will, of course, be in attendance at the FONDREN ZIPPITY-DOO-DAH™ festivities in March—so save your SECRETARIAT ticket stubs (CLICK HERE TO FIND THE THEATER IN YOUR AREA) and bring ‘em with you. KILTBOY will trade a kiss for every ticket stub! (He’s resting up as we speak.) (For all sorts of info, links to interviews, and trailers, click HERE.)
