Welcome to JANuary! Raising Money for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington DC
"Great idea! I am in! Support #JANuary" -Jan Vesely via Twitter
The DC Sports Nexus wants to raise money all January long for a good cause while supporting our favorite basketball team. That is why we created "JANuary".
Some of our blogger friends are in, like Blog So Hard Sports, so join us!
JANuary is named after the Washington Wizards player Jan Vesely, and during this month we are looking to raise money by donating $1 to the Boys & Girls club for every point that Jan Vesely scores in the month (or every foul if that number is higher)
Please note the minimum donation is $10
This was not sanctioned by the Washington Wizards but Jan Vesely seems to be all about the idea!
Sadly, we don't have too much money on our own, so we are looking for some other individuals and/or organizations to step up and make flat donations, or pledge to donate similar contributions based on Jan Vesely's scoring.
Why boys & girls club?
The mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington is to help boys and girls of all backgrounds, especially those who need us most, build confidence, develop character and acquire the skills needed to become productive, civic-minded, responsible adults.
Why Jan Vesely?
Because he is our favorite player!
If you are doing a Points Scored/Fouls donation, please PLEDGE in the comments and then donate the money in the beginning of February!
