A few weeks ago Bagolitas partnered with a local MS chapter to help raise money for their organization. 25% of the proceeds of each Bagolita item purchased will go to their chapter when you shop through their special url. Last week they emailed us because country singer Clay Walker was performing a concert in Hampton, Iowa. Clay himself has MS and has organized a foundation (“Band Against MS“) that participates in bike rides all over the United States to raise money for MS. Not being able to turn down an invitation to see a country singer, Jayne and I hopped in her car and made the 2 1/2 hour drive (each way) to northern Iowa to help promote Bagolitas’ recent fundraising efforts. We helped set up the MS chapter’s table, and met Curt, the guitar player in Clay Walker’s band and Band Against MS team captain. Four hours after we got there, we FINALLY got meet Clay Walker to tell him about our partnership with MS and pose for a group picture. Anyone want to go on a 2-day, 150-mile bike ride with me to raise money for MS?
