Thanks once again to all who pledged for February! It was a rough month all around - between the condensed schedule and the lackluster performance on the ice, things weren’t quite as rosy as they’ve been. Still, we racked up over $600 in pledges, all of which will go to the excellent folks over at Fort Dupont - granted, it’s no $23,000, but every little bit counts!
Did you make a pledge? If so, check the final scorecard to find out how much you owe (and as always, if you notice any discrepancies or don’t see your pledge listed, please let us know).
Payments should be submitted via Paypal here*; please include the name listed on the spreadsheet in the notes when sending payment.
*If you are for any reason unable to pay the amount due, or need more time to pay, please contact us ASAP. If you would prefer to donate on an individual basis, or if you’d like to bump up your total, let us know so we can adjust the total being collected.
With that out of the way...
Pledges for March are now open!
This month, we’re sending all contributions to the Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation. DIPG is an aggressive brain tumor that is diagnosed almost exclusively in children; approximately 200-400 children are diagnosed with DIPG each year. As of yet, there is no cure and no effective treatment available. The Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation works to raise awareness of this disease and fund research towards finding a cure for DIPG, Read more about their amazing work here.
Also, starting this month, there will be no cutoff point for submitting a pledge (aside from the month ending), so feel free to add to your initial pledge or submit a new one whenever you want, as long as it’s before the final game of the month.
In other words, if you’re hoping a little extra karma helps goose T.J. Oshie’s goal numbers midway through the month, or if you think your total donation could use a boost, bump up the volume whenever you want through the end of the month - just be sure to either record it in the comments below or tag it with #JRPledge on Twitter so we can keep track.
There will be 15 games included in this month’s pledge-o-rama:
- Sat 3/3 vs. Maple Leafs
- Tues 3/6 @ Ducks
- Thurs 3/8 @ Kings
- Sat 3/10 @ Sharks

As always, you can drop your pledges in the comments below or submit them on Twitter - making sure to use the hashtag #JRPledge - for this month.
Reminder, this is the last full month of the regular season (although we’ll hopefully have some good stuff in store for April and whatever kind of playoff run the Caps can put together) - so let’s make this one really count!
