Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Wednesday, April 1 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
In these unprecedented times, everyone is doing their part to help out their local community, even the Kirkland Sea Hawkers. As the official booster club of the Seattle Seahawks, the Sea Hawkers represent the 12s all across the world. The Kirkland chapter recently took the initiative to create some hopeful signs to post around their city.
The 'Hope' signs were printed by a local shop and then posted around the city of Kirkland. The hashtag #WeGotThisKirkland sits right underneath the word 'Hope,' spinning off the popular hashtag you may have seen around social media over the past few weeks (and on Seahawks.com), #WeGotThisSeattle.
Noticing more and more signs around town, a handful of folks began showing interest in purchasing the signs. This led the Kirkland Sea Hawkers to begin selling them for $12 a pop, donating all the proceeds to the small business relief fund set up by the Kirkland Chamber of Commerce.
In order to continue to spread the message, the Kirkland chapter also sent the design to some other Sea Hawkers chapters to get similar signs made for their home cities. Four chapters have taken them up on the idea so far. Now, this is what we like to see, thank you 12s for helping out in your community and a special shout out to the Kirkland Sea Hawkers!
