Tonight, the Vancouver Canucks are hosting their 23rd annual Canucks for Kids Telethon. And representing CHB, I’ll be manning the phones for the Telethon post-game.

But what really excites us is what we can do to help this fantastic cause!

Over the past few seasons, a number of us Canucks bloggers have pledged to donate a few bucks during the Canucks for Kids Fund Telethon based on different criteria – goals scored, faceoff wins, and other such sports props. And after helping raise over $400 last season, we want to figuratively blow the roof of this blog by raising even more!

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!!”

So for tonight’s telethon, the following contributors have also pledged the following:

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 call 1-85-KIDSFUND (1-855-437-3863) or by heading to canucks.com.

Tomorrow, the Vancouver Canucks are hosting their 23rd annual Canucks for Kids Telethon.

Canucks For Kids Telethon


From the CFKF Telethon page:

The Canucks for Kids Fund Telethon, presented by Chevrolet, is an annual radio and television telethon. During the 2011/12 NHL season, the CFKF Telethon raised more than $1.3 million through phone/online donations and fundraising events throughout the year. The Canucks for Kids Fund dedicates resources to assist charities which support children’s health and wellness, foster the development of grassroots hockey, and facilitate and encourage education in British Columbia. Over its 27 year history, the Fund has raised more than $41 million for the children and families of our province.

Always ones to give back, over the past few seasons we here at CHB have been proud supporters of the telethon. In fact, with the help of our readers last season, we pledged to donate over $425! So when we were invited to help out with the telethon tomorrow, I didn’t hesitate to step up.

I’m both proud and excited to be helping take your calls post-game and challenge all of you to call in and donate what you can! While you won’t be able to ask for me specifically, you can donate by calling 1-85-KIDSFUND (1-855-437-3863) or by heading to canucks.com.

And while it would be cool for one our readers to win the 2013 Chevorlet Trax that is up for grabs, the fact your donation will go towards the Canucks Autism Network, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, BC Children’s Hospital Foundation and many other deserving causes is pretty epic if you ask me!

So do you what you can. Spread the word. Pay it forward. Help us help the Canucks help the kids! Anything you can do is completely appreciated!

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:

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.
