Aaron Rodgers Fundraiser For Shooting Victims

I think its great that these sports figures are giving back to the community after something horrific like this.

BROOKFIELD, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he and Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun will hold a fundraiser for the victims of the Brookfield salon shooting and their families.

Rodgers and Braun own the 8-12 restaurant in Brookfield. Rodgers says the restaurant ties them to the community, so they’re looking for a way to help out.

WTMJ reports plans for the fundraiser are still being finalized by Rodgers’ and Braun’s restaurant partner, Omar Shaikh. They say 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the victims and their families.

Three employees of the Azana Salon & Spa were killed Sunday in a shooting that wounded four other women. Police say the gunman took his own life at the spa.

This assistance is not for general fundraising campaigns that contribute to the operating budget nor does it help sell tickets to galas, races, or silent auctions. Its all about project-specific fundraising with measurable impact and community-oriented results.

According to Groupon: “Groupon Grassroots campaigns always have a project-specific goal and create a sense of urgency for the donor. Whether it is a matching donor specific to the campaign, an enticing registration incentive, or a particular project or program that you have an affinity for, Grassroots campaigns generate energy and excitement around the featured cause that isn’t normally available.

Groupon Grassroots helps coordinate your campaign from beginning to end. Once you’ve identified a compelling project, a Groupon Grassroots Campaign Organizer will coach you through building and launching your campaign. Throughout the process, we’ll provide you with the following resources:

  1. A creative campaign write-up crafted by our dedicated team of Groupon Grassroots writers
  2. A step-by-step promotions and public relations guide to marketing your campaign
  3. Phone consultations to discuss the best campaign strategies for your organization
  4. Access to the Groupon Merchant Center, where you can monitor campaign performance and analyze demographics
  5. A check issued to your organization for 100% of donations received (Groupon absorbs all credit card fees)
  6. Post-campaign communications guidance so you can build on your success and establish a long-term relationship with your supporters
