    Default "Rebounds for Haiti" !!!!

    I haven't donated anything yet. I've been trying to decide where to donate funds, with the least chance of waste.

    I've donated to MercyCorp before, so here's what I'm going to do......and maybe you can join in............

    Maybe anyone can join in, for THEIR team this weekend.

    I will donate $3 for every Gonzaga REBOUND on Saturday night vs. San Diego.
    (Averages have been in the 30's, so I expect something like $100.)
    This is the way to turn "negatives" into "positives," because that's what those victims need.

    Can you take this challenge with me??
    Maybe donate $1 per rebound, or 50-cents??....or 5-cents. Whatever.
    You can choose the charity.

    Continue the post........Spread the idea, and let's see what we can do !!!!

    How about Free Throws for Haiti, might give the guys an added incentive to make those!

    Default RE : "Assists for Haiti"

    Assists...........Oooh, I love that. Great idea.
    FT's are also good.

    However, I went with rebounds because they are plentiful....and visible. Every miss essentially is an opportunity. I can see that. The Zags are going to get plenty of defensive boards, and a variety of offensive ones, too.
    (I used to do stats at the GU games, and rebounds were my specialty.)

    Assists are somewhat hidden while watching the game, but the idea is perfect.
    FT's are an unknown number. There could be 10 or 20.

    Thanks for contributing this way.
    The Molly Hightower story was on my mind today.

    How about the free throw percentage? Maybe $2 times the percentage rate?

    That might be an incentive!

    I could go with that!

    Default RE : Stats

    The nice thing is.......There's no wrong answer here.

    It's just a way to "get a number" and help out.

    (I actually wish I could go there to help. I'm not doing much, besides working.)

    They read the board...they will know the stakes.

    My personal favorite is Free Throws for Haiti.

    I also like the idea of working 3 balls for Haiti rather than getting the free Wendy;s burger or what ever.

    Regardless, writing a check to Catholic Medical Missions Board...

    Love the idea that we can tie this into BBALL,

    BUT...let's just do it.

    How 'bout this...

    Molly Hightower memorial.

    Play for her, ZAGS.

    Contribute in her name ZAG fans.

    love,

    A Zag is generous.

    A Zag knows he is much more than the sum of his stats.

    A Zag has a desire to be part of something that is bigger than himself.

    I highly recommend Catholic Relief Services as far as donation choices go for getting the money to where it needs to be with the least waste.
