Wear Red and Open those Pockets on Saturday!

EDITED 1/29/10--
Policy will prohibit the collection of money at Maples, but there will be plenty of info available on how you can help out!

I'm usually here asking you to help support our team monetarily, but this time Stanford Women's Basketball is taking on something much more important. The Players came up with a plan to join the national movement to Wear Red for Haiti, which all got started as a Facebook page. As a symbol of support, Stanford will take an unusual step and wear their Road Cardinal Red uniforms during their home contest against Arizona on Saturday, January 30. Beyond the symbolism of support, they will be raising money through the American Red Cross at the game. By the way, Arizona will be in their Whites.

What can you do? The team has asked that you join in by wearing RED (or Cardinal) when you attend the game. While you are there, please consider making a donation to the American Red Cross. They are working with partners in the global Red Cross and Red Crescent network to assist those affected by the disaster. Your gift will support emergency relief efforts to help those people affected by the earthquake. Assistance provided may include deploying personnel, sending relief supplies and providing financial resources.

We have all seen the devastation that occurred.
We have all seen the spirit of the people of Haiti.
We all know that there is so much to do.
Here is your chance to join in by helping a great group of
young women show their support.
