How does Jail-a-Thon work? An individual will donate an amount toward missions to "arrest" another campus colleague. A warrant will be placed for this individual and when "arrested" he/she will need to raise double this amount to be released from the "MSAC Jail." i.e.: Someone donates $10 to put out a warrant for someone else's arrest. When arrested they will need to raise $20 to be released. The individual can call friends or families, have individuals donate online, or beg within the MSAC Jail to reach the set bail price.
