Help us raise money for four great causes in time for #SPNChi!! (Sept. 9-11)

We just wanted to reintroduce ourselves again since we’ve got new people from last year who might not know who we are! We are the R2J2 Foundation, the people who brought you the AKF bracelets at last year’s ChiCon. We raised $850, which was split two ways between Team Levi (for the Down Syndrome Guild of Dallas’s Buddy Walk in honor of Jensen’s nephew, Levi) and To Write Love On Her Arms (in honor of Jared). Jared and Jensen were obviously touched by the donations, so we decided to keep up the work and try to do it again this year.

This year, we’ve expanded our outreach to include Operation Stand Down: Tennessee (in honor of Rich) and The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada (in honor of Rob). This is an ambitious endeavor, but we’re hopeful everyone will get together to make this great!

We have had to make one change, however. The bracelets from last year were donated by an anonymous donor, which enabled us to put all donations towards the charities. This year, our benefactor can’t afford to foot the cost of bracelets, so we’ll be handing out stickers, instead.

So far we have only raised $39.41. We have been told by the hotel and the con organizers that we are not allowed to solicit cash donations during the convention without buying a table in the vendor’s room. As that would eat away at the money going towards these good causes, we are dependent on donations coming from all of you before the convention.

Please consider making a donation via Paypal to oceansaphire507@gmail.com. This is for our boys and the causes they hold dear, and we want to make this great!
