Default 9 Box Absolute Sandy Hook Charity Break #1 - Tom Brady Auto

Filled out a 32 slot random team break for 9 boxes of 2012 Panini Absolute. We raised $600 for the United Way of Western Connecticut, which was really cool. It's not much, but it's something. We had an OK case, still no Luck or RG3. We did get two Weedens, a Tom Brady Redemption and some other nice stuff. Gonna try to fill one more charity break.

*This was a group break I ran, and I don't own any of the cards. None of them are for sale*

I just wanted to comment and say how incredibly awesome this was of you to host a charity break such as this!

I am from CT, and the fact you are all the way from CA and still have the heart to do something like this makes me feel great. $600 is a LOT!

Great break & congrats to everyone with the nice pulls.

Thanks again!!!

Thanks, but it was my pleasure and I felt like I needed to do it. I have a 3 year old daughter and when I heard about the shooting I felt terrible. Barely made it through work on Friday. Then I realized that I could possibly have a way of raising money to send there, so I took a chance and ordered an 18 box case of Absolute overnight.

I started out with 100 dollar slots to try to raise 1k, but it was a little much for people so I dropped it to $50 and did a 9 box break and I think we raised 450, and I added 150. It felt really good to make the donation. I had a guy buy 7 slots! It was awesome.

I keep telling people that I'm just so glad to have a way to raise money. I never had until my breaks starting taking off recently.

that's better than an "OK case" ... I'm slightly confused on how the case is for charity, but I'm sure you did good.
