The mission of Fantasy Cares is to push people to bring a charitable element to their fantasy leagues and to help raise money each year through the fantasy sports community for various charities. The majority of money raised is to be used to buy toys for kids at Christmas with those toys being donated to Toys for Tots. In the past we have also done fundraisers to send money for hurricane relief after Hurricane Harvey, a food shelf, the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Coats for Kids, Go Pantry, Feeding America, The Equal Justice Initiative, and more. This year, we are pushing people to find charities they are passionate about, and donate to those.
Please consider what you are passionate about and donate / help them out. Consider bringing a charitable element to your league. If you take one entry fee from your fantasy league, and donate it to charity (either the league chooses or the or the winner chooses), we can do a ton of good out there as a fantasy community. Maybe figuring out what places you are passionate to help will help you consider bringing it to your leagues!
The best way to contribute to the Fantasy Cares toy drive is through the SFB Podathon paypal pool during SFB draft week, or the tshirt sales from Rotowear and Veridian Global. It's a 24 hour toy drive during the first days of the Scott Fish Bowl.
Here is one of our shopping trips for toys for tots that made the news. You can follow this year's toy shopping trips on the @ScottFish24 twitter account.
