It’s not often we here at Rock the Red get to toot our own horn about accomplishments, but there are a few topics we can’t help but share. Sometimes it being featured on ESPN, other times it’s writing about our blog winning awards. Our favorite, however, we couldn’t achieve without the support of our readers. You see, we have a shirt shop that we started not long ago from which we donate all proceeds to Washington Capitals’ charities. Whether it’s Mike Green’s So Kids Can or Jose Theodore’s Saves for Kids, the whole “giving back” thing really gives us the warm-and-fuzzies.
This time, we were able to donate $200.00 to Matt Hendricks’ Hendy’s Heroes, a faction of Defending the Blue Line which is a non profit organization created by soldiers. Through this donation, they will be able to keep the spirit of hockey alive for the children of our nations military heroes. That means that Rock the Red has been able to donate over $500 via the purchases made in our shop!!!
Again, a big thank you to all the readers (and bloggers) for all your support over the years. We have big things planned for this shop in 2012, so if you haven’t checked it out recently please stop by and pick up a shirt (or three!)
