Sports rivalries are fun.
Living in Seattle as a 49ers fan has provided lots of banter, back-and-forth prodding and fun memories of game day.
What people elect to do with their money is their own business. I'm not going to question anyone's motives or moral compass based on such acts, but can't we do better and turn something so negative into a positive?
No billboards. No bricks. No airplanes. Just help kids.
49ers and Seahawks fans: Let's unite. Join me in showing the fans, teams and media watching that we are above such petty causes and can get along in the name of good.
As I do not see an approved Children's Hospital in San Francisco on this site, we'll go with Seattle Children's, as I know it is a wonderful hospital devoted to helping children get better.
100 percent of your donation (minus the processing fee) goes to this cause. There will be no furthering of the rivalry made with your donation.
Just help kids.

The goal is lofty, but if we apply the same passion that we devote to our sports teams to this cause, we can make a difference for something so much more meaningful.
If you can give a buck, please give a buck. If you can give a hundred, that's entirely up to you. But my bigger ask would be that you help me share this cause on Facebook, Twitter, at work or anywhere else you think people may be interested in giving.
Donating is great, but spreading the word is even better as the latter makes the former possible.
We're pushing the hashtag #SEASFUnite on Twitter in our efforts, along with the tag line "No billboards. No bricks. No airplanes. Just help kids."
Thanks for your consideration.
