As the Hiles least likely to go to jail, I’m sorry to announce that I have been detained as part of the Midwest Innocence Project’s 2016 Bailout event. All throughout March all of us “detainees” are raising “bond” to support the MIP’s work to free the innocent behind bars. I know I can count on you!
You can do help in two ways:
- Donate to my “bond” and help get me out of the clink. My detainee page is here: https://portal11.bidpal.net/Portal/bpe298681/catalog/item.html?id=8. Any amount is appreciated. Please consider giving even as little $3 or $5!
- Buy a ticket to the Happy Hour on March 31st . Check it out http://bit.ly/1PGvR2h
The MIP Bailout event is quickly becoming one of the great parties of the year. 2015’s event raised over $47,000 and contributed to successes like Floyd Bledsoe, who was released on December 8th after 15 years in prison for a crime he did not committee. See the KC Star’s Article – HERE.
How Does the Bailout Work?
Participants – or “Detainees” – raise funds in a friendly competition to support the work of the Midwest Innocence Project. Detainees are asked to post “bond” of at least $1500 by collecting donations through the month of March in a friendly fundraising competition. All this culminates at the the party on March 31st where detainees bring friends, coworkers, and supporters to solicit last minute donations from the crowd. The detainee who raises the most bond is the winner!
