Hockey Community Bands Together

I originally started this site just before the 2009-2010 playoffs, then the New Jersey Devils had one of their worst seasons every. And I took the "If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all" approach. I pondered doing some off season blogs about the draft and free agency but, time wasn't a friend of mine.

However, there is always time to help a friend of mine.

Over the past weekend the east coast was hit by Hurricane Irene, many lives were change in just hours. One of those lives, was a friend of mine on twitter, has lost her house. Sunday night she slept in her car with her dog. Where she is going from here I don't know.

In the wake of this tragedy to one of our own, a fund has been set up over at NHLtweetup to help her as she gets back on her feet. You can donate $5 to help—you can donate $100 to help. Any little bit helps. And as an added bonus, any donation will be matched dollar for dollar by a contributor who wishes to remain anonymous. Just imagine the head start we can give her!

If you run a blog, please feel free to grab the widget and tell your readers about this situation. If you’re on Twitter, retweet a link to your followers. If you’re on Facebook, let your friends and family know about the situation. You never know who may feel the desire to help out a stranger…

Thanks for indulging us—we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled hockey programming in a bit.
