As you know, we are partnered with the Jamie Daniels Foundation, an incredible organization dedicated to ending the stigma of Substance Use Disorder and providing support to those in need. The foundation was created in memory of Jamie Daniels by Jamie's father & Red Wings Lead Announcer, Ken Daniels, and Jamie's mother, Lisa Daniels-Goldman.
A few years ago, we, along with Prashanth Iyer, worked on a way for the Detroit Red Wings community to better offer our support, and what better way than to tie in the excitement of Red Wings hockey and turn it into supporting an awesome cause? We're excited to announce the return of:
It works like this:
1. Go to the "Wings Money on the Board" pledge form (click here!). Tell us who you are (your email is only used to remind you of your pledge & deliver prizes - you won't be contacted for any other reason)
2. Pick the players and parameters of your pledge (ex. "$1 for every Dylan Larkin point; $53 for Seider's first goal of the season; $0.10 for every Husso save;" etc.)
Be sure to select whether you're pledging for the whole season or a special, one-off game (that has its own prizes and rewards! The first such one-off game will be announced soon!
4. When it comes time to make your pledge (either end of season OR after one-off pledge games [more info to follow], make your donation through the Wings Money on the Board fundraising site (click here!), and send us a screenshot of it! It's important for your donation to go through our JustGiving portal (don't worry, the Jamie Daniels Foundation still receives all proceeds!).
Aside from creating some more fun while watching Red Wings hockey & supporting an excellent cause, there are tons of prizes & giveaways in it for you too!
We're going to be giving away things like WWP stickers & swag packs, shirts, & more to everyone who pledges and donates, based on the amount! We're also going to be doing major giveaways at the end of the season and for one-off games, including: jerseys, memorabilia, meet & greets, & more!
Over the past couple of seasons, you've helped us raise over $100,000 total through all initiatives! Our goal this year is $50,000 pledged and donated to the Jamie Daniels foundation across all initiatives by the end of the 2023/2024 season - can you help us achieve this?
