The Conshy Bears are conducting a fundraising drive for new uniforms and helmets. We came upon the campaign on Twitter when we saw tweets from Kamal Gray from The Roots promoting the opportunity to donate. We inquired with the Bears on the connection and we learned that Gray has two children participating in the program and he is the Vice President of the Board of the Conshohocken Youth Football Association.
So far the campaign has raised $1,089 of its $10,000 goal. Below is a tweet where both Gray and band mate Questlove ask for support:
“@questlove: please donate to a good cause @kamalgray is raising $ for youth athletics http://t.co/jVv9IWfEGN” come on yall 1 dollar???
