Reader Coni Fichera from Johnston, R.I., passes along the news that Bruins fans can donate to Right To Play as they follow the team through the playoffs.
"The principle is simple," Fichera wrote in an e-mail. "No donation is too small and like our team, everyone can find a way to contribute! Tie together the Bruins success with a small donation, but help spread the word! We wanted to make it fun and tie it into the Chase for the Cup, so we suggested playoff pledges. Some people are making a pledge to donate a dollar for every goal of their favorite Bruin, or $5 for every playoff win. Other people have come up with even more creative ideas -- a nickel for every time Jack Edwards uses one of his trademark "fungoes" calls, or a penny for every time Milan Lucic doles out a hit (that one could get expensive, especially if we play the Habs). All in all, it gives fans a chance to give back to a charity near to the heart of their Bruins and have some fun doing it!"
Right To Play is the humanitarian organization that counts Zdeno Chara, Andrew Ference, and Steve Montador among its athlete-ambassadors.
