Jaybo Art is giving half of any profits made off of this website from Today till Sunday to Reid Ogden. He is a filmmaker for badfish.tv and is a beloved fisherman who was shot in the arm and side. His go fund me page is www.gofundme.com/reidogden and the story is below. Thanks!
"As many of you know, on Monday March 21st, our buddy Reid Ogden, fly fisherman, photographer, and BadFishTV film maker was shot while in Key West. He was on a first date with a righteous babe he met earlier that day on the beach. As they were walking to his car on Duval St. a gunman opened fire and Reid was shot along with two other victims. Reid was shot through his left forearm and the bullet exited his arm and graised his side. Reid had to be helicoptered to Miami trauma center where he was hospitalized for two days. He was released and is happy to be recovering at home.
The doctors are still determining the best treatment for his arm as it may be a more complicated gun shot injury than initially diagnosed. There are bullet fragments in his arm, his arm is broken and there may be tendon damage. But this is good news, for had his arm not slowed down the bullet it would have entered his side and he probably would not be here sharing his bright smile with us today.
They caught the gunman but he posted bail at $498.5K and has been released from jail. People have already seen him walking around Key West which is sick and scary. There will be a trial. Reid will need to hire lawyers and press charges in hopes of collecting compensation to cover his $400K in medical bills, as Reid did not have insurance.
Reid is a major contributor to the fishing community. He has been recognized and awarded for his work capturing breathtaking moments of fishing and wildlife with his photography and films, and he does not plan to let this incident stop him from sharing his talents with the world. To check out his work see Reid's Vimeo page.
Due to his gun shot wound he is unable to film, fish, or return to work for a while. We are raising funds for Reid to help support him through the next couple months through this sucky road of recovery.
If you are fortunate enough to know Reid, then you already know he is one genuine, positive, talented, humble, bad ass dude. He is good people. We are trying to raise $20,000 for Reid by June 1st. If you would normally buy this fine fella a beer or a meal, then please show him some love now. Donate to this GoFund me and together we can help keep our brother on track!
