Help Our Dean Get Out of Jail AND Raise Money for a Good Cause!

Dr. Barbara Burd, Dean of Library Services, will be arrested on  Wednesday, February 16th. No, this is not the result of horrifically high overdue fines. Instead, she is raising money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association

After being carted away on the 16th by the MDA, Dr. Burd must pay $2,200 in bail in order to be freed. Since we would like to have her back sooner rather than later, Kimbel Library is asking for your support. You can help Dr. Burd and the Muscular Dystrophy association combat neuromuscular disease by

making a donation

MDA is a nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. The Association also provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy and education.

Simply click above and find your way to Dr. Burd's personal fundraising website, Or visit the reference desk and donate any spare change. Not only can you say that you bailed a Coastal Carolina University dean out of prison, but you can also enjoy the satisfaction that you have provided help and hope to kids and adults served by MDA in the Grand Strand community.
