The Lucky Donation

Could giving to the Stone Bank bring you luck?

It did for your Stone Bank blogger.

Get lucky

Could giving to the Stone Bank improve your luck? Perhaps. Give it a try.

Here’s the story: On Give to the Max Day, my employer offered staffers a chance to win an extra vacation day for contributing to any nonprofit during the day of giving.

I gave.
I dropped my name in the basket.
I won.
I am now the proud recipient of a free day off with pay.
So. There you go.
It’s Day 21 of National Blog Posting Month, a great day to test your luck with a contribution to the Stone Bank project. Really, you can’t lose, because this project is a winner.

Thanks for reading the blog.

Now It’s His Lucky Shirt!

We present to you a man, a Stone Bank T-shirt and a hockey victory!

Our friend, Jeff, wore his Stone Bank T under his equipment in an AHA — Adult Hockey Association — game last week. (Why wouldn’t he wear it on top?)

Jeff thinks his Stone Bank T-shirt made him lucky on ice. Excellent theory.

His team — the Spitfires — was down a goal in the third period, and Jeff made the goal that tied the game.

Goooooooo! Jeff!

And the Spitfires went on to win! (Could be luck. Could be skill. We like the idea that the shirt made the difference.)

Now he calls the Stone Bank T his lucky shirt! You know, he’s probably correct.

Doesn’t everyone you know need a lucky shirt? Come on. They are 100 percent cotton. Pre-shrunk and, well, just plain lucky. For a mere $15 donation, you can be lucky, too. Order yours today. Be a Spitfire. Be a rock star. Your T-shirt order supports the Stone Bank project.

Don’t need luck or a shirt? We accept plain, old-fashioned donations, too.
