    Default Yum Yum Cotton Candy man needs our help....

    For those wondering what happened to Chris the cotton candy man.....


    Help Chris "yum yum" Jones survive!!! BREAUX BRIDGE, LA

    Chris's trailer burnt down in a fire on 12-3-13. He lost everything including his beloved dog. All he has is the clothes on his back.

    Many may know Chris from being the cotton candy man at the Cajundome or Superdome in Louisiana. He is now disabled and can no longer work at his job he loved so much. He has diabetes and had to have part of his leg removed. So, having this job all his life he has no insurance or benefits to help him survive. He needs all the help we can give him because he will be trying to rebuild his life all over again.

    Chris still has a awesome spirit he says " Katrina took everything from him and he rebuilt and he will do it again." Please everyone help this great person out. If you would like to donate food or clothing his sizes are shirts 2x and pants size 38. Thanks and God Bless

    I can't say I'm surprised of the support he's getting, which I assume is majorly from the Acadiana area. We truly have THE best people and culture here!

    Donations almost up to $8,000. Shows you how much a smile makes an impression on people. Even Tyla and Mark Hudspeth made a donation.
