2005 Redskins Yards for Youth Campaign... Seeking support


Recommended Posts

I am seeking support from our diehard skins fans to assist youth in the metropolitan area. I have been lucky enough to allign the Loudoun County Youth Shelter (NAFI) with the Washington Redskins for the 2005 Yards for youth campaign.

Here is some backround:


Innovative Fundraising Campaign Enables On-line Donations

WASHINGTON, DC (June 22, 2005) − North American Family Institute, Inc., has been named one of the benefiting charities for the Washington Redskins’ Yards for Youth fundraising campaign. Created by the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation, Yards for Youth is a unique opportunity to donate to North American Family Institute, Inc., – as well as a great way to cheer on your favorite NFL team. Yards for Youth donations are based on the Redskins on-field achievements during the entire 2005 season.

On-line at www.yardsforyouth.org, donors will pledge a specific dollar amount for each offensive yard gained by the Washington Redskins during the 2005 season. Donors will be able to designate which organization will receive their donation from the pre-selected youth-focused charities.

During the 2004 season, the Washington Redskins gained 4,398 total offensive yards. If a donor pledged 2 cents per yard through Yards for Youth, the total pledge for that selected charity at the end of the 2004 season would have been $87.96 from that single donor. To make your pledge for Yards for Youth, visit www.yardsforyouth.org.
