CHB Community Challenge

 

The Canucks Hockey Blog Community Challenge combines CHB’s passion for the Vancouver Canucks and its commitment to the community.

How it works is simple:

  • Canucks players are typically aligned with a charitable organization or community program.
  • At the start of the season, a CHB writer will pledge a certain dollar amount based on a player’s statistical category and donate the total amount to that player’s charity or community program. (For example, the Sedins are aligned to BC Children’s Hospital. A CHB writer can pledge $1 for every point Daniel Sedin scores this and donate the total amount to BCCH. Using last season’s stats, that amounts to a $104 donation to BCCH.)
  • CHB will then issue a challenge to our friends, readers, Twitter followers and Facebook friends to match the pledge and donate a similar amount to the same charity or community program.

To participate in the CHB Community Challenge, send an email to us at [email protected] or leave a comment on this page, and let us know which CHB writer’s challenge you’d want to accept. As the season progresses, we’ll add some sort of a leaderboard to this page to track how many of you have signed up.

What is important to note is that CHB won’t be collecting these donations. At the end of the season, we trust that anyone who participates in this challenge and makes a pledge will follow through and contact the charity or community program directly.
