Before celebrating the Seattle Seahawks at the Super Bowl, a fan rose from his chair with a great blue and green idea.
As the associate pastor of adult ministries from Grace Baptist Fellowship in Lynden, Bill Cummins looked to his long-time friend Martin Harvey and created the “Lighthouse Mission Ultimate Seahawks Playoff Fan Run” Facebook event.
They and the people surrounding this event committed to donating $1 to the Lighthouse Mission whenever they mentioned the Seahawks in a Facebook post.
There are a lot of people that want to do positive things in this world and a lot of people at times are looking for a good cause and a good excuse, and a fun way to go about doing it.
“Every time I’m mouthy, I’m putting my money where my mouth is,” Cummins said, “benefiting something far more important than sports.” Cummins said this was their way of having fun and donating to an organization they believed in.
Many people partook in the event because they wanted to show their appreciation for the Lighthouse Mission, Cummins said. “There are a lot of people that want to do positive things in this world and a lot of people at times are looking for a good cause and a good excuse, and a fun way to go about doing it.”
Some people donated even when they weren’t posting about the Seahawks. “I know an individual who donated $200 and that individual didn’t come close to posting 200 times,” Cummins said with a laugh.
At the end of it all, Cummins has collected $1,815. The Lighthouse Mission couldn’t be more thankful to the community for thinking of them when yelling for the Seahawks. To read more visit us online at
