You can skydive with Ron English for $5,000

Mike Carter-US PRESSWIRE

The Eastern Michigan coach will freefall with you toward the earth at an alarming speed if you donate to the football program.

What a cool idea. Sites like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo have given donors incentives to contribute money for a cause, depending on how much you donate. To reach EMU's fundraising goal of $60,000, they're giving away things such as autographed footballs, field passes to football games, and a chance to skydive with Eastern Michigan football coaches, either assistants of the man himself.

The going rate for skydiving with English is the top-of-the-line donation of $5,000.

To outdo himself once again, if the 10th Annual Golf Outing raises $60,000, he is going to skydive. That is not all, you can join him! Through the popular crowdfunding platform IndieGoGo, fans and supporters of the football program can donate to the Time to FLY campaign and receive perks for their charitable gift. One of these gifts is the opportunity to ride from Ypsilanti to Skydive Tecumseh with Coach English, spend the day with him and eventually ride in the plane and skydive with him.

He's either done this before or this is an incredible Photoshop, but he speaks with the authority that he's skydived before. But the entire idea of donating like this got me to write a post about it, which normally doesn't happen because most programs have fundraiser golf outings, dinners and standard swag. But not skydiving.

Time to Fly. Or rather, plummet to earth and gracefully parachute down toward it, giving you a renewed appreciation for gravity and the terra firma. But that's too long of a hashtag.

There are three skydiving opportunities available, and you can donate here.
