The Virginia Cavaliers triggered a third straight Pack Line Pledge donation after a big win 15-point victory over No. 14 Notre Dame. The Irish were cutting it close in the final minutes, but, knowing what’s on the line (I assume), Notre Dame kept it to just under 55, taking the 71-54 loss. This is the 13th Pack Line Pledge game of the season — against a top-15 ACC Squad, no less.
You can use the little CrowdRise widget to make your donation, which is tax deductible as the money goes straight to the One Love Foundation.
For those of you who don’t remember, for ever Pack Line Pledge game -- that is, for every game that the Cavaliers hold their opponents to under 55 — Pack Line Pledge participants will donate a set amount to the One Love Foundation in honor of Yeardley Love. The better the Hoos’ defense over the course of the year, the more money gets donated towards raising awareness of relationship violence.
Make your donation above. But to join the list below and to receive email reminders when Virginia holds an opponent to under-55, be sure to register on the initial announcement page. Remember that no amount is too small — even pledging just $2 or $5 per game will make a difference. If CrowdRise has a minimum donation amount, just hold on to your gifts until you reach the minimum, or until the end of the season.
Big thanks to the following readers for making their pledges!
