BowTie Thursday is SWEEPING THE NATIONâ€¦or itâ€™s catching on. Either way, Iâ€™m excited. After 3 consecutive BowTie Thursdayâ€™s people are starting to participate.
Yesterday Connie (a friend of mine from South Carolina) sent me a picture of her son Ryan and his Doctor at MUSC (Medical University of South Carolina) rocking the BowTie!
For those that donâ€™t speak Twitterâ€¦translation
The girl asked if girls could participate in the BowTie Revolution! To which Dhani said, â€œThey already are! Ask Brooke Ryanâ€ ïƒŸ OMG!
You may know Dhani Jones as a Cincinnati Bengals Linebacker or from his TV show on the Travel Channel â€œDhani Tackles The Globeâ€. I know him as the BowTie Man! When I started BowTie Thursday (which was inspired by my co-worker Colin), Colin informed me of Mr. Jones and his Charity. www.Bowtiecause.org
The website sells bowties that benefit all different charities. From a 9/11 Memorial BowTie to a Ronald McDonald House BowTie to a Zoofari BowTie (YES ZOOFARI as in ZOOFARI at the National Zooâ€¦heâ€™s a local fella from Potomac!) I also heard a rumor that there may be a BowTie coming soon to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. That just warms my heart.
Feel free to join me next Thursday by wearing a BowTie! If you get funny looks or if people question your new style, pass along the piece of wisdom that Dhaniâ€™s friend KuntaÂ passed to him, â€œIf you wanna be anybody. You gotta rock a BowTie.â€
Youâ€™re a class act Dhani Jonesâ€¦and not just because you wear a BowTie.
