By now the world has heard about the 3 girls who were kidnapped and held for 10 years in a Cleveland area house. Browns safety T.J. Word decided he was going to do something to help these 3 women. He hosted a celebrity bar-tending even at one of Cleveland’s top spots.
Ward hosted his event to raise money for the victims at Cleveland’s House Of Blues. Ward Said;
“I heard about the story and it touched me,” Ward said. “At first, I offered tickets to a game, but I wanted to a little bit more, so I stepped forward and did this. Hopefully, we can help them get back on their feet. I’ve got a sister; I’ve got a niece, and I couldn’t imagine that.”
One of the first guys that lined up to take part in the event was none other than Browns corner-back Joe Haden. Joe loves to take part in events to help the community. Haden said;
“I want to do anything to give back to the community, for sure,” Haden said. “It’s to a really good cause, trying to get people back on their feet that have been through a whole lot. (I’m) just trying to help out; trying to give back.”
All the Proceeds from the event went to the Cleveland Courage Fund to help Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry, and Gina DeJesus, who were found on May 6 in a house on Seymour Avenue in Cleveland after they had been held captive for more than a decade.
Lets hope this helps these 3 people get back on their feet. It is hard to imagine how these girls lived for the past decade or so, the nightmares they must have had being forced to live in the conditions they had are difficult to imagine.
Ward did a great job trying to help these women…. Way to go T.J..
