Here at SG Nation headquarters, we get all kinds of requests. Fans asking for Red’s worn socks, requests for us to appear at Royal Order of the Golden Rooster annual picnic, and an offer for me to be the “before” guy in a Bulk-Up-Muscle commercial. But some of them we have to take seriously, and what follows is one of the ones that matters. Do what you can, you always do…

As many of you know, my cousin Jeneen lost her son, Isaias, just days shy of his 10th birthday to Acute Myeloid Leukemia. On September 13th, I walked in the Jimmy Fund Walk in honor of Isaias and Jeneen. Thanks to all of you that donated to my walk efforts, I was able to raise $1,645.00. I thank you for making that possible. After finishing the event, I decided that I wanted to do more to help fight the battle of cancers, so mothers like Jeneen would never have to live through what she lives through.

With the assistance of my friend, Aileen, we put together Project Cupid’s 1st Annual Charity Date Auction to benefit Dana Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund, which will take place on February 5th at Red Sky Lounge and Restaurant in Boston. In addition to the charity date auction, there will be an opportunity drawing, a live disc jockey and much more fun to be had for a great cause.

I would love to see each and every one of you at our event, but I realize that’s impossible for some of you. After all the kind words of encouragement you have all given me, I knew that many of you were hungry to help our cause and want to see it succeed. If you have the ability, you may donate any amount to the Dana-Farber Cancer institute by sending a check, money order or cash to Amy Blue C/O Project Cupid, 96 Washington Street, #24, Brighton, MA 02135. No matter how much you can give, I and everyone involved with Project Cupid appreciate your continued generosity.
