I'll donate $10 for every goal we win by tonight, $20 for every goal Hagelin scores, and $100 if we get a shutout.

I'm just a lurker, but this seems like a good cause. Put me down for $10 for every goal Zuccarello scores in the remaining regular season games + $5 for every assist, up to a maximum of $100.

If he somehow manages to score a hatty, I'll donate a $100 "Sukarillo plos" Garden Dream Note instead

update:
CBJ: 2 assists = $10
PHX: 1 assist = $5
EDM: 2 goals, 1 assist = $25
VAN: 1 assist = $5
COL: 1 assist = $5
OTT: 2 goals = $20
CAR: 1 assist = $5
BUF: 1 assist = $5

This slowed down a bit. To get us going again I'll match any donation made during the game tonight. Limited to a total of $100.

30 dollars if Hank reaches 30 wins
22 dollars if Brian Boyle is the 1st star in any game (might as well make it 22,000 )

Anyone else have some creative ideas?
Updating my previous post with results so far

5 Rangers wins - $25
0 MSL goals -
Hank 30 wins - One more!
Boyle - lol

Being a lifelong Ranger fan and seeing all the Garden of Dreams foundation does this was naturally one of my choices, All the charities that I or my attorney contacted were obviously thrilled to be on the receiving end of this potentially substantial gift. Except the Garden of Dreams. No one answers the telephone. You leave a message on a voice mail. Finally after over two weeks and two or three messages someone called me back. Basically, he was an idiot. He didn't know anything, couldn't answer any questions, had no clue what to say. I suggested to him that someone more experienced should get back to me. No one ever did. I finally gave up and called the Make a Wish foundation. I spoke to the attorney for Make a Wish and discussed with her how I would like the money used. I even mentioned to her how disappointed that I was in the Garden of Dreams being a huge Ranger fan. She immediately said that she worked closely with the Garden of Dreams and would be more than happy to contact them to try to help me out. Imagine that. She was going to forego my contribution to help me contribute to the Garden of Dreams because she knew that's what I really wanted. Well it didn't make any difference because she couldn't get anyone from the Garden of Dreams to contact me either so I stuck with Make a Wish. So the Garden of Dreams lost out on a 6 figure donation because they wouldn't make any effort at all.
Hadn't seen this until now...

My wife works in non-profit and a couple years back, she was looking to move into another organization in the city. GoD seemed like a great place to her considering what we saw while watching Rangers games. I reached out to a buddy of mine who works for the Knicks to find out more about it, what sort of staff they have, if he had any contacts, etc. He basically told me that they don't have their own staff at all...everyone else who works these events are MSG employees in other areas: operations, marketing, PR, etc. So the reason no one is getting back to you is because there is no one to get back to you.

That doesn't excuse anything, they should have people dedicated to reaching back out, especially when people want to make contributions...just wanted to paint the picture as I had a very different idea of what the org was before I spoke to my friend.

When in doubt and faced with a publicly displayed message, quote Primus....

Just thought I'd bump this to remind those of you who made conditional pledges to donate. Also hoping we can get a few more pledges to reach the target before this series end.
