It goes without saying, that we are beyond grateful for the outpouring of support that people have shown the Mini-Sticks project as well as for the Gegen family. When the project was launched, we didn’t quite know what to expect, but wow… this has been amazing. In a few short months, with the help of so many of you, especially hockey bloggers, literally thousands of eyes have visited this page and dozens of sticks have come in. Seriously Amazing.
The latest sticks that came in, included a sweet note from the Minnesota Wild… here is what it said:
The Minnesota Wild would like to extend our most sincere well wishes to you. We heard that you are collecting mini sticks and wanted to add to your collection. Enclosed is a Wild mini stick signed by Wild prospects #6 Marco Scandella, #18 Brent Bulmer, #63 Charlie Coyle, #61 Zach Phillips and #64 Mikael Granlund.
Your Friends at the Minnesota Wild Hockey Club
How fantastic is that?! The project has received great support from so many NHL teams! Hockey folks are awesome! Please keep it rolling if you can! Spread the word about Mini-Sticks for Mikko!
