As an avid Seahawks fan, I cannot let 49er's fans get away with this!
The Niners fans have thrown the gauntlet and the 12th man can do better. In response to the Go Hawks flag that was flown over Candlestick Field during the last matchup, the Niners fans have raised enough money to put up a billboard near Century Link Field for the duration of the season, and the extra funds they receive are said to be going to an unspecified charity. I know we can do better 12's!
The goal of this campaign is to raise $120,000 to donate to Seattle Children’s Hospital in Russell Wilson’s honor. Children's Hospital has been a frequently visited spot by Wilson and his unending support for the kids has inspired me to raise funds for this specific charity.
When the 12th Man has raised $120,000, I am hopeful that I will be able to get a corporate sponsor to fund a Billboard near Candlestick Field that will conceptually be a picture of Wilson with some kids from Seattle Children’s that says “Thank you 12th Man for your support”.
All money donated in this campaign will go to Seattle Children’s - no money for this campaign will be used to fund the Billboard.
Let’s show the country why we are not just the loudest fans in the country, but also the most GENEROUS. Louder, Faster, Stronger, SUPPORTER. GO HAWKS.

I have partnered with the creator's of the San Francisco fundraiser, and they have an amazing goal/opportunity to help as well. Thank you 12's for all your support to both campaigns!
