Here’s a positive way for Seahawks fans to one-up 49er fans. We can donate more money to a worthy cause than they do.
This started as a prank last month when 49ers fans raised money to purchase a billboard in Seattle, with any additional funds going to a local charity. They easily hit their mark, and things took off from there. An anonymous 49ers fan has promised to match donations in each city up to $100,000 each, for a total of $200,000. Earlier this week, the 49ers and Seahawks each announced they will do the same—so every dollar donated is actually four.
So far, Seahawks fans are winning. Seattleites have raised $26,598.00. San Franciscans have pledged $16,161.
