Rink Rat & Rabbits Donation Drive for "Saves For Kids" (almost $2,500 Raised!)

Jose Theodore has started a charity, Saves for Kids, in memory of his son. If you haven't read Tarik's heartwrentching piece of Theo's loss, please do. This season, Theo will make the following donations based on his play:

  • $2 for each save ($5 for the playoffs)
  • $100 for each win ($200 for the playoffs)
  • $500 for each shutout ($750 for the playoffs)

Theo will donate an additional $500 for each playoff round the Capitals win.

Knowing the generosity of hockey fans in general, and Rats & Rabbits in particular, G.O.D suggested that we come up with our own fundraiser to support this cause. So, here's the deal. You decide which game(s) you will be donating for, regardless of goalie. You set you donation levels. Put this information in your reply, and I will update the list each day, along with a running total of money raised after each game (might be the following morning, but you get the idea). You can donate 5 cents for each save, a flat $5 for a win, match Theo's donation levels, whatever. More important than you donation is your participation, no matter the size.

We can decide at a later date if we want to try and get all this money together and make a single donation to Saves For Kids on behalf of the Rink, or if people are more comfortable doing individual donations.

You can also, as some have already done, make a flat donation immediately. Information on how to do that is available here. If you have, let me know and I'll add you to the list so you can be recognized.

In case you're curious, Jose has already raised $3,800 with his play.
