You've read the sad saga of former DFW sports media personality Wally Lynn. And you asked "How can I help?" Tuh-dah!

Off the streets and out of the homeless shelter, Wally is living with his brother. He's getting back on his feet. I've talked to him and he sounds sober and sorry, like a man fully aware that he's lucky to have survived rock bottom.

He's got a long way to go. But first things first, he needs some clothes. A trip to the dentist. Some mode of transportation.

Let's give him a boost in the right direction!

Sending a link to describe what this campaign is all about. I have the money in my account, but I see my friend a couple times a week and use my personal credit card to then pay for him to get back on his feet. In his situation me and his brother think it's best he doesn't have access to too much disposable income at this point. So far we've purchased a computer, cell phone, clothes, etc. and just last night paid his most recent phone bill. We are now in the market for a car with the bulk of the remaining funds. I have posted updates on our spending (with photos) on my Twitter and Facebook (Richie Whitt). Thank you.

By my sportswriter's math, we're only $159 from our goal to boost Wally back into the real world. He's doing great. Laughing. Texting. Re-connecting with old friends and family. Good stuff. Thanks for all your help!

Big thanks to all those helping Wally Lynn get back on his feet and walking in the right direction. We've raised $2,000+ so far and others have stepped up with gifts of everything from dentistry to clothing. When you wake up today to the horror in downtown Dallas, it's a nice reminder to know that people are still willing to help each other.
