One last push to finish out the final two months of the 2017-18 season - let’s make it a big one!

First of all, we apologize for the lack of an April pledge drive; sometimes life gets in the way and some things get put on the back burner.

...that said, a month off should mean that everyone’s got plenty of spare change lying around that can go towards a good cause, right?

But before we get to that, let’s do a little housekeeping from way back in March - thanks to a pretty strong month overall for the good guys, we’ve got just over $1000 going to the Michael Mosier Defeat DIPG Foundation, which is just awesome. You continue to do us all proud by chipping in, and every little bit counts, so thank you to those who pledged!

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 the rest of the playoffs are now open!

Whatever the next two months hold for the Caps, they are the reason we’re all here - so this final round of pledges will go towards the official charity of the Washington Capitals and their Monumental partners, the MSE Foundation.

The MSE Foundation is committed to the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area and focuses on the following five pillars to maximize its impact on the community:

  • Education and scholarship
  • Hunger and homelessness
  • Military and veterans’ affairs
  • Pediatric health and fitness
  • Youth basketball and hockey

Read more about their great works here.

This time around we’re doing something a little different - pledges can be made about the Caps or any other playoff team through the end of the postseason, regardless of when it comes to an end for our boys. Want to pledge money for every game played by the “expansion” Golden Knights? Hoping to see Steven Stamkos light up the Bruins? Think an extra boost can get the Caps out of the second round? It’s completely up to you what accomplishments (or anti-accomplishments) you choose to pledge for!

In short, starting with the second round and going straight on through to the Cup Final, any and all pledges are accepted. Let’s try and get that total way up to finish out the 2017-18 campaign!

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.

We’ll check in after the Cup is awarded for the final tally... here’s hoping it’s a big payday, and a bigger finish for the Caps!
