ONALASKA, WI (WXOW)—Jason Mickelson is ringing bells, to raise money for the Salvation Army, for 24-hours straight at Festival Foods in Onalaska.
He'll be there until 4 o'clock tomorrow afternoon.
Mickelson's goal is to raise $1,200 dollars during his marathon, which would be an average of $50 an hour.
He hopes people will see him sitting there for 24-hours and say to themselves, ‘if he can do that, then I can reach into my pocket.'
"I was thinking what could I do that would really stand out this year for the Salvation Army," Mickelson said. "And the community to help with the need there is out there in the community and this was the first thing I though of."
Mickelson tried to prepare to be up for 24 hours by sleeping in this morning and drinking a lot of caffeine.
He said when people donate it gives him energy too.
