OREGON OR BUST!
Help us make it to the 2013 Division 1 Playoffs!
I don’t know if you’ve heard the news, but the Chicago Outfit Syndicate was invited to the division one WFTDA playoffs in Salem Oregon! We’ll be playing against the best of the best, the cream of the crop, the whipped cream on top! But, Shima, you may be asking yourself....what can I do to help??
WELL....there is one...eensy....weensy...itty...bitty favor we’d ask of you! Now, I know you were really eyeing that infomercial underwater telephone for only 64.99!! But I can think of one particular better use for that money. The Outfit really needs your help! The Division one playoffs are in Salem Oregon as I said before, and because we all work at day jobs, and we can’t take a few months off; we can’t really hitch up wagons and buy some oxen and forge the river down the Oregon trail (besides who wants all those rattlesnake bites.) Plane tickets to Oregon cost an arm and a leg, we’re talking like 500 dollars a skater! The Chicago Outfit is a non-profit organization, so most of the money we make gets put right back into charities in our community. That means that skaters pay for their own travel and derby expenses.
We have created a GoFundMe website where you can make donations to help us if you’re feeling generous and want to support your FAVORITE roller derby league! I can’t tell you how much your donations mean to my teammates and me! We’re all doing EVERYTHING we can to raise money and help each other get to the playoffs! This is a huge opportunity for us and we want to make sure that we can take our very best skaters no matter what their financial situation!
Please if you have even an extra dollar, every little bit counts! If you make a 5 dollar donation, you can think of it as one less Starbucks for the month (who needs all that sugar and calories anyways right?)
We really do appreciate everything you do! Our fans are the greatest, most loyal, most amazing fans in the world! Please help us continue to improve, grow, and compete to be the very best skaters we can be! I know my teammates and I have been training our derby butts off: on and off the track so that we can really make your generous donations worthwhile!
So thanks in advance, and if you do donate, you can expect a personal thank you in your inbox from yours truly!!
You can donate online here! http://www.gofundme.com/chicagooutfitrollerderby
Better yet you can come to our SEASON CLOSER HOME BOUT on August 24th where I’ll be running around collecting donations in person from our faithful crowd members! We also set up donation boxes at our beer stations where we sell the always delicious Revolution Brewery Beers!
Thank so much for your incredibly generous donations! WE LOVE YOU!
Outfit LOVE! Shima
