Slurms, do you have a group of people you watch the game with? A bunch of friends who all hang out? If so, consider volunteering to be a Game Day Captain. They're people who organize a game-watching group at home or elsewhere and help publicize FHF and raise money. Maybe pass the hat and everyone puts in $10. Maybe auction a jersey or signed football [we're awaiting word from our contacts with the front office on whether they can supply some]. Maybe get your school involved.

We'll keep track of how much is raised by the Game Day Captains and see who's the best!

Thanks for your interest. We definitely want fans of all ages to be involved!

*Attention Maxi-Padders*

After talking to the other advisors we have agreed that we should donate money to help FHF. We ask that every member try to donate some money to help this great cause. Even if its not alot, itll do. Donating money through the paypal account is simple. Though as many of you already know, alot of the maxi-padders are younger so paypal might not be an option. Just mail it in if thats the case. The address is in the first post of this thread. Im looking to donate some money come August when I start working. Its not going to be $500 or $250 like PSSD and Stingo buts it the best I can do. My job doesnt exactly pay alot. I hope that alot of you guys can do the same. Don't forget to visit the forums at the FHF site. Thank you.

What a great idea! I'd love to help!

I can try to help Eagles fans in Palm Beach affected by the hurricanes. Please contact me via My Profile if I can be of assistance. I'll offer what resources and can and try my best to help in this extremely hard time for Floridians, and contribute as Slurms suggested to those in need in other states.

Yours,

Cynd

Well if you are into helping Eagles fans nation wide ATTENTION!!!!! furious.giffurious.giffurious.gif The Department of Defense is at it again to take things away from our soldiers. The spokesman said due to overwhemling support of sending our troops care packages they have to addressed to certain soldier not just to any soldier. Because the APO is overlaoded. HELLO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Here is prime job or volunteer for Americans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Call your mother brother sister aunt and uncle local,state, fedral and government offices and the DOD itself!!!! WE have lost another soldier in Faluigah here in the NorthWest . Demand that they get these packages to these troops. Women especially need sanitary supplies and other hygene products not easliy accessible especially in an infantry unit. I am aPersian Gulf War Veteran and I know how important a care package is. And also get on these politicans to resurect and pass the bill for free postage of sending care packages to Iraq!!!! ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great avatar, matt! Excellent to "meet" you, since we are fans of the same NFL AND MLB teams! :towel:

To those who started FHF, and to those who contribute in whatever way they do, let me just say that FHF is one more thing that makes me incredibly proud to say I'm an Eagles fan! Eagle_smiley.jpg May God greatly bless all that you do!

Hello to the FHF folk that read this.

I am presently trying to organize a raffle for my autographed Dawkins authentic to get my family out of a financial situation we are in. No, I am not asking for money.

I want to get your support if I can. If I do, I believe it will allow me to openly promote it on these message boards. In return, I will donate a percentage, I'm thinking in the ballpark of 10%-20%, back to FHF.

On top of that, I am very active in a small community of Eagles fans here in San Antonio Texas. If there is every a hand that is needed down this way, I assure you it will be taken care of.

I look forward to hearing from someone.

Thanks

Jane,

I haven't looked but I doubt that any other teams fan base is doing something so admirable like this. This is great. I will donate as soon as possible. The Eagles community is a family even if we never met each other. We all share a special bond. Our love for the Eagles is like no other type of fan. I'm in the Army stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington. If there is anything I can do up here for anybody in our Eagles family, let me know.

Hello all,

This is my first post, anywhere. Here's my story... I am currently enlisted in the US NAVY and station in Fallon, NV. About 1 hour east of Reno. I have been in a little over 9 years. I have been all over Asia, South Pacific and even did a tour in Iraq. This May-June, I will be re-enlisting back in th NAVY and am very proud to do so. Here's the thing... At my re-enlistment ceremony I am allowed to have anyone do my Oath of Enlistment. I am hoping that the Eagles Family here and help from other sources will help in getting D. McNabb to come and do the Oath for me. If anyone knows someone who knows somebody, please pass this story along. I dont have a lot of time. Please everyone, your help would be greatly appreciated. I know this is just a long shot. I have never been to an Eagles game, EVER! But I have been a fan since my Dad knew he was a father. If this is not possible, I would really love to come back to Philly and go to the first home game in 09, possibly getting field tickets. I really want to meet D. Mcnabb! I will sell my truck if I have to. This means a lot to me. So, if anyone can help, please. God Bless...

Guys, pardon me for jumping in with a need of a different kind. Have any of you by chance seen the clip of Tom Brady making the young Eagles fan cry? I think it started on YouTube and made it to the sports section on MSN. It's an awesome clip of a 5 or 6 yr old boy experiencing the agony of defeat (as we all have at some point) during the Monday night loss to the Pats,and I personally at his age would have the same type reaction. He is being attacked by the idiotic Patriot fans as being a "snot nosed kid with a speech impediment whose dad needs to teach him sportsmanship" and all sorts of outrageous comments about him and his dad. I think the clip is hilarious and very precious because I can relate: I hate Tom Brady too! He's saying on the clip he hates Brady because he's throwing too many touchdowns. What he means by hate is something far different than what these haters are displaying though. His is a healhty hate:) If you guys can find it and post any messages in response to the idiotic comments I've been seeing on facebook and yardbarker and others, this kid needs our help. He's a true Eagles fan, in every sense of the word, and these guys just can't stand it. You don't even want me to get into the comments they make about Eagles fans. Please help defend this precious young Eagles fan and his dad. Dad actually handles the situation with dignity, but they smear him ferociously. Go help him out....please!!! Thank you in advance. I'm just a fan who loves the game and loves children and hate to see one unfairly treated this way.
