Hot Clicks is about to embark on a charitable mission for the holidays and I need your help. I know times are very tough right now, but if you're looking to give back this holiday season, I have the perfect way you can do so. Jack Barker is a 12-year-old from Coppell, Texas. Jack is battling leukemia and there is one thing that helps him get through his chemotherapy sessions -- the Snuggie. The blanket helps Jack stay warm while keeping his arms unrestricted. But Jack isn't interested in getting more Snuggies for himself. He's raising money to buy Snuggies for every cancer patient at Children's Medical Center in Dallas. Check out this full story here.
Now, loyal readers know that Hot Clicks was pretty much responsible for the Snuggie explosion, so I thought this was the perfect chance for all of us to help out Jack. You can donate by visiting his Web site, Jack's Closet. Or you can send checks to Jack's Closet, PO Box 2813, Coppell, TX 75019-2813. Or, if you'd like something in return, you can bid on that Derek Jeter-signed copy of the 2009 Sportsman of the Year issue I mentioned here a couple of weeks ago. Instead of doing a giveaway, I've put it on eBay and the money raised will be sent to Jack. The auction ends next Monday. Also, if you contribute via Jack's Web site, be sure to leave a message in the comment box that you're donating after seeing the story on SI.com, and drop me an e-mail as well.
