TIMBERS & MERCY CORPS PARTNER ON JERSEY AUCTION FOR INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE
Jersey Auction held online and at Timbers’ home match Sept. 21 at JELD-WEN Field
PORTLAND, Ore. – The Portland Timbers and Mercy Corps have partnered to play host to a special jersey auction in recognition of the International Day of Peace. The auction will run up to and during the Timbers’ match against the San Jose Earthquakes at JELD-WEN Field on Wednesday, Sept. 21. All proceeds from the auction benefit Mercy Corps sports programs and the Portland Timbers Community Fund. The jersey auction will be held in two parts – online and in-game – allowing fans to get their hands on their favorite Timbers player’s game jersey. Those with the winning bid will be presented their jersey by the player during a meet-and-greet on field following the Sept. 21 match. The jersey of the players on the Timbers’ match-day roster for Sept. 21 will include a commemorative International Day of Peace patch.
KC Special Note: I already purchased Darlington Nagbe’s jersey (#6) & will be donating it to Mercy Corps Sports for Change effort!
Roadtrip Nation exists to empower individuals to define their own roads in life. What started as an annual documentary series on public television has grown to include an innovative educational curriculum, live campus events, nationally-publicized books, and multimedia online content.Roadtrip Nation began in 2001 as an idea Mike, Nathan, Brian and Amanda, four friends fresh out of college, formed when they were not sure what to do with their lives. Initially, the scope of the plan was relatively small – climb aboard an old RV, paint it green, and traverse the country with the purpose of interviewing people who inspired them by living lives that centered around what was meaningful to them. Along the way, the four realized that the conversations that they were having on the road could not remain within the confines of their own RV, but held relevancy that could be shared with a world that was losing the know-how of living lives that pulse on personal passion rather than someone else’s expectations.
