This “challenge” places her in a tough spot. By publicly offering her this, it would make Missy look bad if she said no. These kinds of offers are best done through private channels before being made public, even though it’s for this cause.


We are not at all attempting to make Missy look bad. She already has done a TON for MS through supporting MSAA and its swimming fundraisers for MS.

We merely made a light-hearted video hoping to increase the awareness of this debilitating disease. We absolutely respect her decision and in no way should it be villified.


Good video. Hope she agrees to join you guys. and I don’t agree that this puts her in a tight spot, all those prom videos and stuff, most celebrities have “something” that is going on that night so they cant go. but if missy supports this cause she would donate anyways, to his team or to the cause in general.
