If you've been to Yost Ice Arena for a Michigan hockey game in the past two years, you're probably familiar with the student sections' giant Swedish and Texan flags.
Next season, we plan on adding two more giant flags to our arsenal, and we would greatly appreciate your support in our fundraising efforts.
Because we are not, and never will be, a University-sponsored student group, we cannot seek funds through the Student Activities Fund. We are very grateful to the Eckert family, who handmade the Swedish flag and donated the Texas flag, but now we seek support from the entire Michigan family for these next two flags.
Below (in the first comment) is a link to our Paypal account. Our fundraising goal is $600, which will cover both flags (one of which will be a custom design) and shipping. We had issues setting up on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, so we're just going to keep it simple with a Paypal account. We'll keep you posted on our progress via @ChildrenOfYost on the Twitters.
Thank you, and Go Blue!While the flags are a surprise, we have been assured at the awesome sauceness of said project. We wouldn't post this if we did not approve, so if you're so inclined:
Update: And thanks to your help (and that of Mr. Aaron Ward, the goal has been reached. Well done!)
