In Response to Re: In memory of MHK: As the Pats win, donate to a Pats charity
[QUOTE]Chris I am still in. This is money well spent. Just let me know what you decide on how to donate, send $ to you for one large donation, or donate locally (I am in Florida) and send the receipt to you. And to the a$$ who doubts the sincerity of the donations, do us a favor and stay out of the thread!

Don't send me money, as I have posted before. Post your receipts here as JPEG or PDF, with your personal info blacked-out. Leave your first name, your ID name here, the charitable institution, and the amount, plus a photo of you and your watching the Pats with your favorite team jersey or whatever. I will make a collage of the photos and receipts and then send them or bring them to the Pats charitable foundation, with whomever wants to go with me, on behalf of this forum and the members. (Post the receipts and the photo separately, so they don' have crud resolution.)
I figured I would make half my donation to Ronald McDonald House, at Shenanigan's suggestion, because of how it helped his family. But I don't know if the Pats are involved with R.M.H., so I am going to donate the other half to one of their charities. I am making my first split donation after the game this w/e. But the rest of you can do it however is easiest. I just want to get the collage to them within in a reasonable time, like seven days after the last win.
I was thinking that this would be cool to do next season in nominal amounts ($10?) for each season game, maybe have the Pats set up a text message donation method, for each win. But they may not want to put that pressure on the players. I decied that we don't want to go to the Globe, because I don't think we should be upstaging or distracting the team while they focus on their game.
I plan to post a copy of my donation receipt early next week, right here, so people can see this is for real. So far, my tab is $100. Another $100 if they beat the Ravens.
Remember, pledge only what is reasonable for you and yours. That means if any of you guys are millionaires..eh hemmm...
