Lions Club member asks Duck Dynasty for help

Bobbie Smith Bobbie Smith

A South Georgia man is traveling across the Southeast to raise money for the blind and he's hoping some TV stars will help.

Bobbie Smith with the Douglas Lions Club started his trip at the camp for the blind in Waycross and is driving to Monroe, Louisiana.

He's raising awareness about the camp and is hoping the Duck Dynasty stars will get involved.

"Actually I've started out with the idea of raising no money. My idea is to get someone to help be get attention to the camp for the blind. Now, what my club does or any of the others do on my way, that's out of my hands," said Smith.

Two members of the Albany Lions Club each donated $50 before Smith left.  The state of Georgia Lions Club runs the camp for the blind and raises money all year.
