Sure, we joked about buying the Hornets. But low and behold the guys over at Hornets247 have organized a real charity organization, the Save Our Hornets Foundation, which is accepting donations to help put people in seats at the Hornets game, to help ensure the attendance benchmark is set and the Hornets are locked into several more years of their lease, making it much more likely that the next owner is someone who wants to keep the team in New Orleans.
This Foundation is for real and sends schoolkids to games, so it’s a great cause in more ways than one. No one need be rich to help. Twenty bucks here, ten bucks there (or more), and with all the different donors, it will add up. So this holiday season, take the time to give a little (or a lot) to help keep the Hornets in New Orleans. Prove wrong the world who thinks New Orleans can’t support more than one championship team. It’s the right thing to do.
