Words you will never hear me say….
“Hey guys, I’m about to jump outta plane from 18,000 feet ……..”
You know I don’t like heights and have a fear of falling? Right?
These CRAZY words are from actor Josh Henderson who currently plays John Ross Ewing, JR’s son, in the new “Dallas” series. He is raising money and awareness for Somaly Mam Foundation to stop the trafficking of humans by jumping out of a plane….I am sure his manager is a little nervous!
His skydive this coming Saturday will be from about as high as they will let you go. Um, You have fun with that Josh! His goal is to raise $5000 by Saturday August 17th for the Somaly Mam Foundation.
The Somaly Mam Foundation is a nonprofit 501c(3) organization dedicated to the eradication of slavery worldwide, with a special focus on Southeast Asia where the trafficking of women and girls is widespread. SMF supports survivor rescue, shelter, and restoration programs (including medical and psychological treatment), as well as empowerment programs that train survivors of slavery to be a force of change in their community. SMF’s awareness and advocacy campaigns shed light on the crime of human trafficking and involve governments and individuals in the fight against modern-day slavery.
If you are a follower of the Big D show, or you like Josh, here is your chance to support him in his quest- you can donate here on his personal fundraising site.
Josh has kindly offered the following Perks for his donors – for $30 donation a Personal Tweet from him, for $50 a Personal Video on TweetVid and for $125 Donation a personally autographed photo.
I have not met Josh, but have heard he is truly one of the nice guys in Hollywood and genuinely appreciates his fans! Thanks Josh for using your celebrity to help raise awareness and funds to help those that have found themselves in this horrible situation.
So tell me would YOU jump out of a plane to help raise funds for charity? You know my answer!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Dallas. Even the older ones from the 80’s! Didn’t really like Josh’s character on the show but glad to hear he is not like that in real life…haha. Um, I would like to say that I would jump for charity. But I’m with you. Don’t think I could do. (really, I don’t think I would want to do it either)

He is a super gentleman from someone I know who has met him. Totally nice dude! I couldn’t do this for charity! He is so cool for doing this!

Ha! I have no desire to jump out of a plane. I don’t even like roller coasters. I can’t imagine freefall!
Julie Franklin says
Yep me either! Go Josh Go!
