Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Wednesday, February 6 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Once A 12, Always A 12
Kindness is spreading throughout Paradise, California after the Camp Fire left many of civilians without roofs over their heads. The deadly wildfire is considered to be the most destructive wildfire in California history to date.
Four local families who are Seahawks fans felt the love from the NorCal Sea Hawkers on Saturday. Tod Gomes, president of NorCal Sea Hawkers, donated gift bags of Seahawks merchandise to each of the four families that lost their memorabilia in the Camp Fire.
“All the families that contacted us or the Seahawks, we sent out a message to all the chapters donations because they lost everything,” said Gomes in an article written by The Paradise Post.
Shasta Hawkins, a Camp Fire victim that received one of the donation bags, said, “It’s nice to connect with other people in town who are Seahawks fans, that’s the biggest thing and just to realize the Seahawks organization is supporting us through this.”
The gracious donations from the official fan club chapter of the Seattle Seahawks included jerseys, sweatshirts, t-shirts, and some flags. One of the California natives even received a Seahawks onesie for her baby that will be due in six weeks.
In an additional effort to help the Camp Fire victims, the NorCal Sea Hawkers raised about $900 from a football game fundraiser. They will also be donating $1,000 to the Hope Center organization in Oroville, California. This wonderful example of kindness shows that the bond of fandom is extremely powerful, especially with the 12s.
