Update

Posted by Garrett on May 28, 2014 at 12:50 AM Comments comments (0)

To date, I have had no replies from any of the teams I have contacted. I have decided to broaden my acceptance and am going to pick up donated Overlake protective equipment and from other individuals. 

I have also recieved $120 in monetary donation, which I plan to put to buying used sticks.

Today I contacted Megan Waddle, the Assistant Athletic Director, and inquired about where I could do clinics. She used to work at the Boys and Girls club and is experienced in this field. She referenced me to the league coordinator of GELL (Greater Eastside Lacrosse League). I will most likely be doing summer clinics.

Today I placed a labeled box in the campus center for donations. It will be checked daily and donations are greatly appreciated. 

Emails Sent to Press

Today I sent emails to The Woodinville Weekly and The Redmond Reporter. I recieved a reply from Woodinviille offering an interview for an article. Unfortunately, the interview will end up being after the deadline. I plan to see this project through to the end and will work after the thirty days to finish it off. 

More Emails Sent Out

Today I sent out emails to: Overlake Coaches, Woodinvile, Redmond, Kirkland, Northshore/Bothell and Bellevue. I sent them information on my project, a link to my website, and a request for donations.

Today I recieved the shipment of mesh from StringKing lacrosse. The retail value of their donation would be a little over $500. 

Multiple Companies Contacted

Today I sent emails to the following lacrosse companies: Jimalax, Stringking, East Coast Dyes, SportStop, Throne of String, lax.com, and lacrosse.com. Two companies responded the same day. Lax.com offered a discount, and Stringking offered to send me 25 pieces of mesh. I replied to both companies thanking them for their donation. 

Cash Donations Available

Our GoFundMe page is now up and running. There you can donate money to help recondition the donated sticks back to usable quality. I need people's help getting the word out so I can start getting donations to fix the sticks with. You can access the page in our How Can I Help? page or through this link: http://www.gofundme.com/8w2rs4
