Hey everybody on HR. Year 2 of our hospital fundraiser was an overwhelming success and we donated $27,000 to the Stead Children's Hospital and various other charities. We've been working hard to make year 3 even better. We started with 5 players and about 100 photos. This year we have 30 players, past and present, and over 2000 photos. We've expanded into wrestling this year and will are working on adding several more players. In addition to all the guys from the first two years, we've added many current players, along with past players Josse Jewel and Chuck Long. Chuck was kind enough to sign 1985 Michigan and Michigan State photos with game notations. They are amazing. As with the first two years, nothing is for sale. Everything is a voluntary donation. With the volume of photos that we have, we have created a website called HawkswithHeart. It's a work in progress but includes the majority of the photos that are available. Check out the website and contact either Matt Warren (Warhawk), John Digman (JDigman) or Dan Fritz (Shoebox-Treasures) We are super excited to get this going and first need to to say thank you to all the players that have signed for us. With NIL, everybody is available and we have a great list of current players that have signed some incredible photos.

The great Sean Purdy graciously built us 3 custom Hawkeye helmets that we are getting team signed. Those should be done in the next week or so. One is black, one gold and one white. These are at the team facility getting signed now.

Any questions, please text me 15 515-710-7995 or Warhawk at destro61704@gmail.com.

Happy New Year everyone. I hope 2022 is the best ever. Yesterday was the best day we've ever had for raising fund for the hospital. We brought in nearly $5,000 in one day and are very close to $10,000 for this year. We added 2 signed team balls. The 3 team signed custom helmets are done and will be available as soon as I can get over to pick them up. Will be adding a couple new jerseys soon. The 3 Tracy jerseys were mailed yesterday and are available now. The jersey in the Tracy photo is the actual jersey we have so it is perfectly photo matched.

Got a really nice donation today from Tory Taylor today. We now have his white game jersey. Since he has different rules being from Australia, the name and JHF tags have been removed. The jersey is in great shape and he will personalize it for anyone that wants to make a donation for it. I can send pictures if interested.

Added a few cool things today. Pair of game used inscribed cleats from Keith Duncan. Bowl watch from music city bowl. Another signed team ball with over 60 signatures and a great 8x10 signed by both Greenway and Hodge. I will have the other 2 custom signed helmets this weekend. We're now at $36,000 to the hospital. Donated photos to 3 more charities this week. One for a fallen Navy veteran, one for a fallen fire fighter and the Chris Norton foundation. Earlier we donated 15 photos to Chuck Long for his April auction. Including all the different charity events, we have now raised over $55,000. We have over 2000 photos with more coming soon. We can probably get a photo signed from anyone of the current players if u have a request. Team balls, mini helmets, game used jerseys and gloves, bowl watches and tons more. Please consider helping us make this fundraiser even bigger and more successful.

If anyone is interested in the mail option, please text me at 515-710-7995. I'll get a photo signed and get it mailed back to you the week of March 7th.
