Giving Tuesday is Right Around the Corner


Nov. 15, 2018

Dear Fellow Former Players & Friends,

The snow is starting to fall here in Washington, DC, and that means so many different things.  The holiday season is going to come and go way too quickly, and we are going to be staring 2019 right in the face.  But it also means there is a great opportunity to take action just a few weeks away.

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is known as Giving Tuesday, and it’s an opportunity for all of us to cut through the noise around Black Friday and Cyber Monday and Doorbusters and Holiday Sales.  It’s an opportunity for you to support your fellow former players, or former players and their families who you serve in a real, impactful way.

For over 28 years, the PAF has been there for thousands of former players and their families, helping them with adversity to the tune of over $21 million.  This year alone, our team has worked with over 500 players.  We wouldn’t be able to make the type of positive impact on these families if it weren’t for the community of caring people who make up and support our fraternity of former players.

Support the PAF This Giving Tuesday

What better way to show your support than to participate in Giving Tuesday and take action.  You are providing the opportunities our guys need when they need help the most.  We’re thankful for your support.  

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones,

Andre Collins
