Many of us in the hockey community are aware of the great charity Defending The Blueline, which enables children of Military families to stay in the game of hockey by way of free equipment, hockey camps, special events, and financial assistance for fees and costs that come with playing the game.
For instance, a kid from Brainerd was recently outfitted with brand new goalie gear donated by the NHL Players Association.
Defending The Blue Line was one of 20 charities selected by The White House for the "Joining Forces Campaign", which brings recognition to the services that aide military families. The fine citizens of America are allowed to vote on the winner, so this is where I need each and every one of you to help.
DTBL is currently in second place, so I want everyone to go here, find "Defending The Blueline", and vote everyday until March 16th. They do a phenomenal job, and I think it behooves us to do what we can to bring them attention and recognition for the work they do.
Please bookmark and vote every day.
