Hockey vs Cancer

We are a group of hockey players that have been fortunate to have remained healthy and continue the sport we love. We know others are not so fortunate and that’s why we want to give back.

With your help we can make life a little easier for those afflicted with cancer. We know there are organizations that collect money for cancer research. Our mission is not to help find a cure but to help the families struggling to pay their bills while fighting cancer.

Like everyone we hope for a cure but our fight is right now and this is the best way we know to battle this dreaded disease.

Ways to donate

There are a number of ways to support those affected by cancer. Whether helping a family as a whole or donating in honor of or in memory of a loved one, each donation helps sustain our mission to assist families in their fight to beat cancer.

How we’re helping

As registered non profit charity we are in a position to help when a family member is diagnosed with Cancer. With your help we can assist where it’s needed most at that time. Mortgage payments, car payments, kids tuition, utility bills don’t care if you have cancer, they just want to get paid. Most often the family suffers because of lost time from work and reduced income. That’s where we come in. With your donations we can give money to these families to cover the bills until treatment levels off and everyone gets back to normal. Continue reading “Ways to donate”

How to donate wisely

1. Be proactive. Identify the causes you care most about, then do research to find the best charities carrying out that type of work. This keeps you on the offensive rather than in a defensive “point of sale” posture in the face of heart-tugging pitches.

2. Give a few large gifts instead of many small ones. Don’t be guilt-tripped into giving to every worthy cause. Developing your own “portfolio” of charities gives you more sway within the organizations and makes you more inclined to give carefully. Continue reading “How to donate wisely”
