Very OT: Want to help kids get a new playground?

I know this is extremely off-topic, but I know the MGoCommunity is a fair and kind one and is always willing to help...

If you have a spare minute today and have the ability to text from your cell phone, I’m asking that you – just this once todaytext 925pbf to the number 95248.

A great friend of mine is trying to help kids in a poverty-stricken community in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania get a new, safe playground. Theirs is in disrepair and the community doesn’t have the funds to pay for it. Your text is a vote to Clorox’s national “Power a Bright Future” contest.

There are no additional charges for your text and you won’t get any spam texts or calls in return. If you can help, I’d really appreciate it...and I’m sure the kids would too, especially during the holiday season. They’re in 4th place at the moment and today’s the last day to vote!

Here’s a link if you wish to vote online instead of by text:

Many thanks!

If you will be sitting in the student section at Yost next year, please take the following survey regarding becoming a recognized student organization if you haven't already:

More information, including obvious pros/cons, is listed on the survey:

Recently, the Maize Rage contacted the curators of the @childrenofyost twitter encouraging us to register as an official student organization and get a table next to them at Festifall. We know that we cannot make this decision on our own, and would like your input.

Foreseen pros:

Possibility of University funded trips to away games, tournaments, meetings with free food, etc.

Possibility of accessibility to hockey practices (Maize Rage has had the above opportunities with basketball in the past)

Foreseen cons/issues:

We may need to "clean up our act" to enjoy the benefits of a recognized student group

We would have to be much more organized: electing a governing body, etc. We would ALL have to be much more involved (we're looking at you, sections not named 16 or 17).

Registering as a student group was previously attempted unsuccessfully about 2 years ago.

Please email [email protected] before voting if you have any questions.

Please vote if you are eligible, but even if you aren't feel free to add your opinion below. 

EDIT: If you're going to try to vote as a hockey player, maybe try one who's not graduating. If you are Carl, sorry Carl, you're technically not eligible to vote but we appreciate your opinion nonetheless!
