Yesterday the Portland Trail Blazers sent Blazer’s Edge, along with several other sites, examples of their new Nike “Earned” Jersey. We want to thank the Blazers for the thoughtfulness and consideration. Like all Blazers uniforms, this one cuts a fine form in person. (You can see it just below.)

There are murky grey-area considerations with us keeping the jersey, plus everything we are, we owe to our readers. So we’ve decided to make the early present available to you. One of the easier ways to do that, which would also do some good in the world and return benefit to the Blazers besides, is offer the jersey as a gift to one lucky person who wants to donate tickets to Blazer’s Edge Night.

For those who don’t know, Blazer’s Edge Night is the night we invite 2000+ underprivileged children, youth, and chaperons to see the Blazers play live and in person at the Moda Center. Tickets are donated by site readers and given free to those in need. This year’s game comes on March 25th against the Brooklyn Nets.

Since we only have one uniform to give away, we want to make the donation bar significant. The first person to donate 20 tickets at any price level (they start at $10) by phone will receive the jersey. We encourage everyone else to donate as well, as it’s a worthy cause.

If you can donate 20 tickets and want the jersey, call our ticket representative, Alec Botts, at 503.963.3926. You must make your donation by phone and indicate to Alec that you’d like the jersey.

Alec will respond to calls or messages in the order they’re received. He’ll take the name and address of the first person to donate 20 tickets and we’ll mail them this new, Nike “Earned” Edition Trail Blazers jersey. Once the jersey is gone, we’ll inform Alec and update this post. Alec will let subsequent donors know that the jersey has been claimed.

We’d love everybody to give a ticket or two to the cause if you can. Here’s the mechanism to donate. (You cannot earn the jersey this way, even if you donate 20 or more.)
