T.O. Relief Fund To Be Founded

TAMPA, FL – The Board of Directors here at LushForLife.com said today in a press release that the news organization plans on founding a relief fund for Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens and his immediate family, according to LushForLife.com Senior Executive Duncan Idaho.

The desire to form a charity for Owens stemmed from Owens’ inability to receive a new multi-million dollar contract to replace his current multi-million dollar contract, despite many failed negotiations between Owens’ agent Drew Rosenhaus and Philadelphia Eagles management. Earlier this summer, Owens appeared on several different sports television broadcasts protesting, “I’m doing this for my family,” referring to his pursuit of a new contract. Though Owens signed a seven year, $49 million contract including a $9 million signing bonus the year prior, executives at LushForLife.com feel the superstar has been slighted and are lending a helping hand.

“Quite simply, this is a charity for Terrell Owens and his family,” LushForLife.com executive Duncan Idaho said. “Our heart goes out to him and his family in this time of need and desperation. We will do whatever we can to support T.O. and we encourage all of our readers to also help out if at all possible.”

The American Red Cross has already joined the surge by donating $1 million originally intended to go to the victims of Hurricane Katrina to the cause, and other high profile organizations and celebrities are stepping forward as well, including the sports news network ESPN, actors Sean Penn and George Clooney, sports analyst Al Michaels, and former late night news anchor Tom Snyder.

Anyone who wants to donate to the T.O. Fund can do so by going to www.lushforlife.com and clicking on the Contact Us link located on the top of this page.
