Foxworthy Takes A "Slow Ride" to Help Raise Money for New Vans

No Longer Bound Engages Celebrity in Humorous Video to Raise $100K to Replace Vans

No Longer Bound, a residential regeneration center for men with drug and alcohol addiction, is leveraging the power of social media in hopes of raising money for new vans for its residents in recovery.

The non-profit has just released a Carpool Karaoke style video, featuring comedian Jeff Foxworthy and NLB’s Executive Director Edward Bailey. The two take an entertaining ride in one of the NLB vans and play air guitar to the van’s theme song (Slow Ride by Foghat), before shifting to a more serious discussion on addiction and NLB’s model of regeneration and recovery.

“The 40 men currently at No Longer Bound are in the fight of their lives from drug and alcohol addiction,” said Bailey. “We’ve worked hard to deliver a world-class regeneration program at NLB and most everything is exceptional--except these vans. We are hoping that with the help of the community, we can raise enough money to finally be able to replace the vans and provide our residents with a better, more reliable means of transportation.”

“It’s a blessing to have the support of Jeff Foxworthy for this project,” said Bailey. Foxworthy, best known for his “You Might Be a Redneck if…” brand of humor is also a champion of the broken and fallen man. In addition to Foxworthy’s support of NLB, he also leads a weekly Bible study for homeless men at The Atlanta Mission.

NLB’s goal is to purchase three used passenger vans at an estimated cost of $33,500 per vehicle. “All total, we are looking to raise roughly $100,000 for three new passenger vans. We are grateful for each and every dollar donated to this cause and the public’s support of our mission and men,” said Bailey.

In addition to individual donors, the non-profit is also offering sponsorship opportunities for churches and groups who wish to partner with NLB for larger donations. For sponsorship opportunities, email: marketing@nolongerbound.com.

No Longer Bound is a registered 501(c)(3) organization and all donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
