Here’s a great cause with a connection to Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze.
On Wednesday night, Jobey Fleenor Frank of Brandon, Miss., started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for a sustainable farming project with the Freeze Foundation. It’s labeled, “Andy’s 40th Birthday Challenge,” and the page lists $4,000 as the goal.
Here’s part of the description from the campaign:
Moving to the south has meant 1 thing: an intense love for Ole Miss Football. But behind that football program is an amazing coach and incredible family that is making a difference in our community and around the world.
With Andy’s heart for mission work, I thought of no better way to celebrate his BIG day than to honor him with a birthday challenge to all his friends and family, far and wide. Andy has made an impact in so many lives on and off the stage, ministering to lives all over the world. Let’s celebrate him today by giving BIG!
The Freeze Foundation was started in November 2014 and has already impacted lives in Haiti, Africa, and the US. The current need is a $200,000 farming and irrigation project for Camp Marie in Haiti, of which $50,000 has already been raised. This project will teach the people of Haiti how to properly farm the land, provide food for their village and a source of income.
Freeze publicized the campaign with a tweet Wednesday night:
What a Generous idea. So grateful for your heart Big Andy!! Let's help him out!https://t.co/UgAdbqY0Xo
