Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today – Thursday, July 12 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
UK Sea Hawkers To Use Seattle's London Game To Raise Money For Hilinski's Hope
With the Seahawks heading to London in October to face the Raiders, the UK Sea Hawkers, the official booster club for UK Seahawks fans, is planning a number of events during the week of the game. In addition to fun and revelry, the UK Sea Hawkers also want to use that week to bring money and attention to a good cause. Inspired by a recent Sports Illustrated article on Tyler Hilinski, a Washington State University quarterback who committed suicide in January, the UK Sea Hawkers will raise money this fall for Hilinski’s Hope, a nonprofit started by Hilinski's family that aims to educate, advocate and destigmatize mental illness.
From the UK Sea Hawkers website:
With that we will have wristbands (in 3 colours- including a special one for this weekend) and #HilinskisHope t-shirts and hoodies on offer via raffles, auctions and flat-sale with ALL proceeds going to the foundation as we look to support a worthy cause back in the motherland state.
As a chapter we are honoured and so appreciative of the help and blessing from the Hilinski family in setting all of this up.

And for the Foundations twitter and all the things they do and hope to dohere:
Thanks to the family and we hope you UK and all 12's coming to London dig deep to support all of our charities in our fund raising efforts in October.
