GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Will you wear an Aaron Rodgers jersey Wednesday?
Some bosses will let their employees wear the green and gold Number 12, as part of Wisconsin’s official observance of Aaron Rodgers Day – the date of which is 12-12-12.
The state Legislature designated the special day earlier this year, to honor the NFL’s most valuable player from last season and the MVP of Super Bowl 45.
Some groups are urging $12 donations to one of Rodgers’ favorite charities, the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer. Also, a mall in Green Bay is offering special deals – like a $20 Rodgers jersey for $12.
Green Bay’s last Super Bowl-winning quarterback, Brett Favre, never had a special day on 4-4-of-2004. But he didn’t have an advocate like Jennifer Brilowski of Stevens Point. She came up with the idea of honoring Rodgers Wednesday – and she kept promoting it on Facebook and convinced lawmakers to pass a resolution.
