I'm fresh out of college, but paying tons for student loans and unfortunately am still unemployed. I wish I could participate, but good luck regardless!

This, minus the unemployment. :lol:

Have fun, everyone! :)

I'm in the same boat as the other starving college students here, but I support this in spirit. I vote for LGW getting their name on the donation, and anything involving sick kids can't go wrong. They need help more than anyone.
Check out my short e-book on the Red Wings' 1937 Stanley Cup championship entitled: "Nothing Could Keep 'Em Down." Please download it from my profile at Smashwords: https://www.smashwor...ile/view/victor

New e-book: The Spanish-American War: A Brief History. Relatively short, introductory read for casual history buffs and people who want to learn more about a forgotten war that changed America. Available at BN.com, Smashwords, Kobo, and Diesel E-Books right now. Same link as above.

* PayPal balance: $103.60 USD !!!!!
Great job, LGW! I'll keep this open for tonight's game and see what happens. This amount will be sent to Children's Hospital in the name of letsgowings.com. If anyone else chips in today, please put your screen name in the notes. I might get a card and sign screen names to it, but LGW will be prominently mentioned.

I think the next time we should do this is the playoffs - say a buck for every game they win? We can play around with it. Of course I'm open to doing it sooner if there's interest.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I think most of us could chip in $16 over the course of 2 months :D

Since the vast majority of the money was donated yesterday and the Wings lost, I've decided to send the whole kit 'n' kaboodle to Children's Hospital. It didn't seem right to send a $20 donation to the DRW F, unless the majority dictates otherwise. Chime in with an opinion if you have one.
Maybe we should start a "Money on the Board" and chip in cash for each game we get through without another injury!

$120.55. I haven't sent it yet, though. For a mere $50 donation to CH, I have discovered you can have a message on the Jumbotron in between the 1st and 2nd periods. I was thinking maybe a "Believe"-type message for Vladdy & Co. and Jiri Fischer, a shout-out to out-of-state LGWers that will be in town shortly or even a "Donate to Children's Hospital from LGW." Any ideas, suggestions or a simple "just send the money already" comments?

I sent my Wish Application in for the game on the 13th against Boston - it says "LetsgoWings.com supports Children's Hospital." If you're at the game, look for it on the Jumbotron between the 1st and 2nd.

Thanks for putting this together. I'm proud to be a part of it. I'll miss the game, however. I'll be flying home from Boston, after seeing the Wings play the B's in the Gahden!
