I had hoped it would be at least a few more weeks, but that was not to be. So...
THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED, IN ANY WAY, IN THE JAPERS' RINK SAVES FOR KIDS PLEDGE DRIVE!
I cannot thank you enough, I cannot tell you how proud I am to be a Rink member and be a part of this. The list of name is incredibly long, too long to post, but every one of you is making a difference.
For the regular season (spreadsheet), we pledged $3935.30
For the playoffs, we pledged $595.15
Yes, $4530.45, all of it to go towards the Children's Hospital NICU.
So, how do you get your money to me/the Caps/babies in need?
You can Paypal your donation to me: robin[dot]taylor[at]student[dot]american[dot]edu. This is linked directly to the dedicated account I set up for our Saves donations.
You can mail me you check (make it payable to Washington Capitals Charities, Saves for Kids on the memo line):
1230 Half Street SW
Washington DC, 20024
You can send your donation directly to the Capitals (make it payable to Washington Capitals Charities, Saves for Kids on the memo line):
Kettler Capitals Iceplex
627 N. Glebe Road
Arlington, VA 22203
If you are sending a check to myself or the Capitals, please also include a completed donation form (pdf). If you need documentation for tax purposes, you must pay by check and have this form completed.
If you are in the Waterfront/Ballpark/Capitol Hill areas, I can possibly arrange to meet you in person. Contact me at robin[dot]taylor[at]student[dot]american[dot]edu. If you are in Georgetown, starting Monday, you can drop your donation off with Mr. B at the Georgetown Wachoiva branch at 29th & M Streets NW. Again, e-mail so I can give you his name.
Our goal is to collect as much of this as quickly as possible to try and give it to Theo is person. Again, a huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated; I've never been so proud to be part of a community as I am tonight. I hope we can do it again next year!
