If you recall, we posted a story last week about UFC middleweight Dan Miller‘s son, Danny Jr. needing a kidney transplant which is going to cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $100,000 plus an additional $10,000 per month in medication for at least the first year.
With the help of a few kind individuals in the MMA community and with the permission of my daughter Abby who created the meme, we will be selling “Chocolate Al” shirts to help raise money for the cause for one week. If you don’t know who Al is, do yourself a favor and read this first.
After factoring in the cost of the shirts, which will be printed for free by Josh from www.truefightco.com/, and the price of shipping, we came up with a highly affordable price of $23 for the shirt with free shipping in Canada and the U.S. and an additional $2 per item shipped internationally.
From each shirt sold, we expect to make between $14 and $17 and we got word today that “Chocolate Al” himself, Chuck Liddell, has offered to sign a bunch of shirts that will be auctioned off to raise more for the Millers.
If you are a Dan Miller fan, a parent, or just a person who has a heart, buy a shirt and show the kind of spirit that sets the community involved in this sport apart from all the others.
Since they went on sale last night, over $1000 has been raised towards the cause.

FYI, we also have it on good authority that the UFC stepped up and made a substantial donation to the Daniel James Miller Foundation, but that’s no reason not to donate more to ensure that Danny gets the best care possible. I’d like to think that people would do the same for me if one of my kids needed the help.
