2012 Canucks for Kids Fund Telethon: A Blogger’s Challenge
Tonight, the Vancouver Canucks are hosting their 22nd annual Canucks for Kids Telethon.
From the CFKF Telethon page:
During the 2010.11 season, the Canucks for Kids Fund donated more than $4.4 million. The Canucks for Kids Fund is dedicated to supporting children’s charities in our province and has played a key role in the creation and sustaining of Canucks Autism Network, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, CFEC, the Canucks Centre for BC Hockey and a number of educational programs.
In the past couple seasons, a bunch of us Canucks bloggers pledged to donate during the Canucks for Kids Fund Telethon for every new Twitter follower we received that night – a donation that totaled $200 combined ($64 from yours truly) last season alone.
But this year we’ve decided to kick it up a notch and make it our biggest single-game fundraising attempt ever!
In the famous words of Barney Stinson, “It’s gonna be legend-… wait for it… and I hope you’re not lactose intolerant because the second half of that word is DAIRY!!”
A few of us at CHB are already taking part in the CHB Community Challenge, but for tonight’s telethon, the following contributors have also pledged the following:
- Christopher Golden (@lyteforce): $15 for every Canucks goal. Click to RT your support or match this pledge!
- Clay Imoo (@CanuckClay): $25 for every Canucks special teams goal (power play or shorthanded). Click to RT your support or match this pledge!
- Elizabeth Moffat (@lizzmoffat): $1 for every Canucks shot. Click to RT your support or match this pledge!
- J.J. Guerrero (@canuckshockey):
$1$2 for every Canucks goaltender save. Click to RT your support or match this pledge!
We hope you’ll support a worthy cause as well. Match one (or more or all) of our pledges or create a pledge of your own, and then ask your friends and followers to match it. Let us know via Twitter or our comments that you’re stepping up and helping raise funds for a cause very close to every Canucks fan and player’s heart.
To make an online donation to this great cause, you can go to the Canucks for Kids Telethon online donation page.
