Our favorite time of year is back! We get playoff hockey, Photoshop threads and we also get to do our Second Annual Money On The Board for playoffs. Last year we raised over $800 for Children's Hospital. :clap: This year I thought we'd donate to Ilitch Charities.
For those who weren't here for last year's festivities, the way this works is you pledge whatever you want however you want. For example, you could pledge X amount for every series or every game. Some have pledged per goal per certain player or X amount for every blocked shot or every goal scored by the blue line as well to add extra incentive.
Money is paid at the end of the series. If you pledge only for a series win and (God forbid) the Wings don't take the series, no money exchanges hands. The money is donated at the end of the Wings' playoff run. Funds are sent to me through a PayPal account I have set up strictly for LGW events. Donations are made in Matt's name. He was very vocal and emphatic about his enthusiasm for this event and made sure Children's Hospital was aware of how the money reached them.
The straightforward pledges that are posted here, I can keep track of. If you pledge per blocked shot by a specific player, it will work on the honor system.
Let's see if we can break last year's total. Thanks so much to all who participate with funds or in spirit and

GO WINGS!!


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 LeonardSankar should pledge $500 since he doesn't think the Wings aren't going to make it out of the first round. :D

I'm going with the hamster pledge again, only this year I have a new hamster. Therefore, I pledge $5 for every goal scored by:
Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Holmstrom, Lidstrom
Kronwall, Cleary
Franzen, Filppula, Ericsson
Miller, Eaves (IR), White, Bertuzzi

I will keep track in my sig line.

Thanks for doing this again!

HUGE EDIT:

Oh, my. I just realized that I made a huge error. I thought I was doing the same thing as I had done last year, but last year it was $1 per goal, not $5.

Well, I do try to keep my word, but I just kind of screwed myself. If I stick with what I said, I may not be able to pay up. So I'm going to stick with what I said, but I'm putting a cap on it: Only one goal per player per series. This caps me at $240 maximum. It's a bit much for me, but that's what makes it exciting.

And this time I really mean it.

Sorry. :(

Whoa...way to 1-up me. LOL. I don't care, it's for a good cause!

Okay...you've inspired me, I'm adding to my pledges to make it interesting:

-$2 per Pasha assist
-$5 per Pasha goal
-$10 per each Kronwalled opponent

I like Karen's idea. I'll do the same for this series. I'll include all the names she did, plus I'll throw in $5 per shutout for any Wings goalie. When Helm comes back, I'll include him too. And I will keep my running total on the bottom. THANKS, Vladdy!! Glad you're repeating this!!


...Now I just hope to hell we get the games in Texas!!

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

You guys have certainly set the bar pretty high. I haven't quite figured out what my pledge is going to be yet, but it certainly won't be quite so grand as the rest of you. I don't feel bad about that, and no one else should either. Ilitch Charities will appreciate whatever we send.

Scott brings up a good point - some people don't have Paypal. I will be happy to accept other methods of payment.

Thanks for the PM. I'm in. $10 for a first round win, $20 for a second round win, $30 for a third round win, $40 for the cup. OR.... $0.25 for every save Jimmy Howard makes during the playoffs, $1.00 for each win, and $5.00 for each shutout. Whichever yields the higher total, the series wins or Howie's stats. I'm hoping either way will hit the $100 mark.

Like vladdy16 said, every little bit helps, so join in, and don't forget..... Let's Go Wings!

I don't know if you can PayPal with a pre-paid card from Wal-Mart.. can you? My husband got his Paypal privileges revoked by his bank a long time ago xD I know my bank account won't work with PayPal, but I'll definitely find a way to get the money sent somehow :thumbup:

I'm excited for this year, but (god willing!) I know I'm going to miss a few games during June. I'll be out on vacation between June 15th through the 24th. I'll have net access on my phone though, so I can keep up on the games!

It's OK, Karen. I may not participate in the next series if the Wings win this one, but I'm in it up to my elbows. Or earlobes, however good it gets for the Wings!

GO, WINGS!!!

No reason to be. The only thing I'm worried about is Kronwall stepping up on 10 people, or Pasha potting 10 goals with 20 assists. I'll pay to see that, literally. LOL.
