Help 2MA Support Hockey Fights Cancer!

2 Man Advantage supports Hockey Fights Cancer.  And we kinda would like you to support Hockey Fights Cancer as well.  And we’re gonna make it so you don’t have to take a single dollar out of your pocket for you to do so.  AND we’re gonna give you something free at the same time.

Here’s the story (All links open in a new window):

If you don’t know already, we have a Twitter account.  (Follow us:  http://twitter.com/2mablog).  Two of our good friends on Twitter are Carlos, a Devils fan, and Dani, an Islanders fan.  Carlos and Dani made a friendly wager during before the Devils/Islanders pre-season game a few weeks back:  Loser wears the shirt of the winning team at November’s NHLTweetup.  As you may or may not know, the Devils won, dooming Dani to wearing a Devils shirt at said Tweetup.

It could have ended with that, but it did not.  Someone had the brilliant idea of raffling off the shirt (seeing as Dani would probably never wear it again) and donating the raised funds to Hockey Fights Cancer.  Then Dani suggested Carlos wear an Islanders shirt in the name of charity, and he agreed.

If you’d like to get in on this, you can do so by going to the NHLTweetup Hockey Fights Cancer event at ChipIn. (There’s a nifty widget I tried to use, but WordPress doesn’t like it for some reason.  Weak.)

Every $5 donation gets you an entry into the raffle.  They’ve already raised an impressive $850 out of the stated goal of $1,000.

Now I know what you’re thinking.  “Well golly gee Josh, that sounds awesome!  But I don’t have much money, and you said I could support Hockey Fights Cancer without spending a dime, and getting something free in return!”

And you’d be right, I did say that, didn’t I?  Well see, the story doesn’t end there.  Last week, the Twitter user known as StarsScene made an agreement that he’d donate an additional $400 (FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS!) to Hockey Fights Cancer, IF he manages to get 1,000 followers on Twitter and 500 fans on Facebook by the end of the month.  He’s currently hovering around 750 Twitter followers and 150 Facebook fans.  I’m not that concerned about the Twitter followers, I think he can do that.

What worries me is the Facebook fans.  He needs a push.

THIS is where I call on you, loyal 2 Man Advantage reader.  Take pity on the fan of the team we vanquished in 2000 for the Stanley Cup.  Become a fan of StarsScene on Facebook. It’s for a great charity.

Now, as I said, not only will you get help secure a GREAT donation to Hockey Fights Cancer, and not only will it not cost you a dime, but I’M going to give YOU something for doing it.

After you’ve become a fan of StarsScene, go to 2MA’s Facebook page, and click on “Send 2Man A Message” on the left hand side of your screen.  Give us your mailing address, and we will send you a few 2 Man Advantage stickers. SUPPLIES ON THE STICKERS ARE LIMITED AND WILL BE DISTRIBUTED ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS.  Seriously gang, this is the last batch of 2MA stickers in existence, get ’em while they’re here.  Oh, and I will check to make sure that you’ve actually become a fan of StarsScene before sending out your sticker, so don’t even try it.  All stickers will be sent at the same time, so allow six to eight weeks for delivery yadda yadda and so on and so forth.

So, what have we learned today?
