I received an e-mail from my friend Emily last night about a great cause that I want to let everyone know about called “The Great Eevee Donation”.
Here’s the story behind the donation…
A league member from West Virginia was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. She will be going through some tough times getting medical treatment and therapy, so to cheer her up and show support, her fellow league members have organized an initiative to collect as many Eevee cards as possible and bring them to her as a surprise.
(Her favorite Pokémon is Eevee, hence why we’re collecting Eevees!)
For full details about how you can help donate, please click here.
Here’s basically how it will work though:
- Gather up ANY spare Eevee cards you have in your collection.
- E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for the address where you can mail them.
- Go to the post office and send those Eevees!
I can only image what a tough time she and her family must be going through, so let’s band together as a Pokémon community and show our support. It doesn’t matter if you have 1 or 100 Eevees, just send them in. Any happiness we can bring her in this difficult time in her life is priceless, so let’s do what we can.
I personally don’t own any Eevee cards, but will be buying some online. I recommend you do the same if you’re in my position… they’re only like 25 cents each. Let’s bring some cheer. :)
