If you’ve followed the blog for a while you may have realized that I’m an Alabama fan. A quick look at the topics cloud to the left is a dead giveaway. I try to be somewhat objective, but usually fail. This is actually a trademark of the fan base. We are a passionate bunch. We come out in huge numbers and cover places with crimson. We like to win. Which is a reason I think this campaign will be so successful.
My good friend Brett has launched a campaign to raise money for the charitable foundation Nick’s Kids called the 1000 Per Point Campaign. It is a 100-hour grass roots campaign that launched 12:30pm CST on Tuesday, August 27, and will wrap up on Saturday, August 31 when the Tide kicks off against the Virginia Tech Hokies in Atlanta.
All money raised will benefit Coach Saban’s charity, the Nick’s Kids Fund, “a non profit organization dedicated to supporting children, family, teacher and student causes.” The Nick’s Kids Fund is a subsidiary of the Alma Foundation. Last year at its annual giveaway luncheon, the fund distributed $418,644 to a variety of organizations. The total donations distributed by the Sabans and the Nick’s Kids Fund in 2012 was approximately $1.2 million. Since the storms of April 27, 2011 that touched down in Tuscaloosa, the fund has distributed more than $1.3 million to tornado relief.
This is a great campaign and I encourage everyone who reads this to give. Whether you are a die hard Bammer, a fan of
a lesser another school, or don’t give a rip about college football, this is a worthy cause.
