Saves for Kids 2010-2011? (update)

UPDATE: The short version is to support Mike Green's So Kids Can. You can read the long version in my comment below.

The season is quickly approaching (ok, not quickly enough) and I want to get some conversation going about maybe doing Saves for Kids or something similar again. We raised a little more than $4,500 last spring, every penny of which went to Children's NICU.

Which brings us to this season......here are some options I've come up with; please fell free to throw out your own suggestions in the comments.

  1. Continue to pledge using the Saves for Kids model we used last year and independently donate that money to Children's. I'd make sure word gets to Theo about the donation.
  2. Use the SfK model but continue to work through Washington Capitals Charities, probably with another player charity designated as the pledge recipient. Mike Green's charities are an obvious choice, but I would find out what other options there are.
  3. Come up with a new model that isn't so goalie-heavy; decide if option 1 or 2 is the better way to go for donations
  4. Not do a pledge drive this year.

I know that nothing will top last season; I'm not even going to try. But I do know I am immensely proud to belong to a community that came together in support of a great cause, and I hope we can do it again.

If you have other ideas or suggestions, please leave a comment! I'm sure there are some great ideas that I haven't thought of.

And once again, a huge thank you to everyone who participated last season!
