Allspark Foundation Launches, Charity Drive Returns!
Transformers fans raised over $15,000 through our informal charity fundraising efforts over the past few years. After taking some time off to organize, we’re incredibly proud to announce that we’re officially opening The Allspark Foundation! The Hasbro Children’s Hospital has also announced their date and theme for the 2015 annual gala, so we’re anxious to get to work with our first fundraising drive. Read on for details about the foundation, the gala, and how to donate.
The Hasbro Children’s Hospital will be holding the Scrabble Ball on March 7, 2015, and as in prior years we’ll sponsor the event – this not only benefits the hospital, but allows us to send several lucky fans to the exclusive, black-tie evening!
Paypal donations here (if you’re international or just prefer it):
For the first $500 donated, Square won’t charge any fees – and after $500 I pledge to cover a portion of fees myself. So as much money as possible that’s donated to the Allspark Foundation for this drive will go straight to the Hasbro Children’s Hospital without any other overhead.
One of the greatest benefits of our new organization is that your donations are now tax-deductible! So hang onto your receipt and you can claim your donation when you file your taxes. If you like, you can even claim the donation on this year’s taxes if you donate by the end of December.
Our goal will be $10,000 for our drive – it’ll be the biggest goal we’ve had, but by starting now instead of waiting for the new year, we also have more time than ever to meet it by our deadline of February 28.
