I want to be clear here: I can’t promise anything. The only thing I control is my own feeds. But, I am friendly with almost all of my ESPN colleagues, and if you follow the steps above (donate, send receipt and your handle to [email protected]) and mention you’ve been blocked by an ESPN personality, I will personally reach out to that person and say, “Hey, so-and-so made a donation to the V Foundation. Would you mind unblocking them for Jimmy V? Pretty please?” Knowing how generous most of my colleagues are and how important this is to all of us, I bet most of them will say yes.
Again, no promises, but I will ask. And if any of my ESPN colleagues are reading this, I hope you’ll share this and make your own offer to your followers. The [email protected] email address works for all ESPN talent.
Whether you donate or not, I urge you to watch Jimmy V’s speech from the 1993 ESPYS. It’ll be the best 11 minutes you’ll spend all week.
