Our Donation to National MS Society

Today, we have taken the $100 raised in our charity group break and donated the money to the National MS Society who continues the fight to find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. Our $100 raised will go towards finding a cure for this terrible disease.

But that’s not all. The fine people at Pure Protein are doubling every donation made to the National MS Society currently. That means we have generated $200 towards fighting Multiple Sclerosis.

I want to thank everyone who participated in the group break. Everyone who participated will be receiving the cards from their team in the break if they had a team that was pulled or some random inserts if they didn’t have a team that was pulled. Everyone will also be receiving a $20 credit for first time sellers on CheckOutMyCards.com and my autograph thanking you for participating.

As promised, here is the screenshot from the donation to prove that we donated $100 to the National MS Society.

If you are interested in donating, please utilize the links provided. Thank you again to all of those who participated and thanks to Panini America for providing the product.

Charity Group Break: 2011 Panini Limited Baseball

I mentioned in a recent post that I wanted to do something to support charity, so with our box of 2011 Panini Limited baseball sent to us for review, we want to use that to give back to charity.

So we will be hosting a charity group break with all proceeds going towards a special charity that will be chosen by those in the group break, the majority of votes by those involved will win. You will have three choices when you sign up for the group break. You can choose between Special Olympics Oregon, National MS Society, or the Portland Providence Medical Foundation. If there is a tie amongst participants in the voting, I will cast the deciding vote.

Each spot in this charity group break is $10. $10 will guarantee you 3 teams in this break. The first team you will be picking yourself with the other two randomized.

To sign up, post below with your team of choice and which charity you would like to support. Then, send $10 via PayPal to sportscardblog@gmail.com to lock that spot in. Make sure the email you use when you post here matches your PayPal email. If it’s different, please let me know. After all the spots have been paid for I will post the video and the review of the product. All the cards will be sent out to the winners.

Since this product only contains a limited number of cards, if none of your 3 teams gets a card, I will send out something to you just for participating and helping support this charitable event.

Again, all proceeds will benefit the majority of the chosen charity by the people involved in this break. I will scan or take a screen shot of the donation for everyone afterward.

Now Featuring: “Good Cause Breaks”

I was sitting and browsing the internet sports card world when I was reading one of my favorite sites out there. Sports Card Radio is one of the top sites out there regarding sports cards with a great podcast as well as one of the most expansive checklist databases known to man, outside of Beckett.

So I was reading their forums when I noticed that they took a couple of products sent for review, and found a way to work them into making money for charity. Then, a light bulb hit my head.

“I can do that too!” So coming up, we will be featuring our first “Good Cause Break” which we will be reviewing a product and then selling the hits and more valuable inserts with all proceeds going to charity.

How about that? I have a few charities close to my heart as well as some friends who are working with the local children’s hospital. Our first “Good Cause Break” has already happened and the product was chosen from our recent review products from our friends at Panini. Stay tuned to find out how you can buy some cards and support charity at the same time.
