Patches Pals License Plate Update
April 27, 2016
BENEFITING: Seattle Childrens Hospital Foundation
Those of you who grew up in the Pacific Northwest and surrounding areas knows how beloved and iconic J.P. Patches and Gertrude were to our culture.
Played by Chris Wedes and Bob Newman, they created one of the longest running children's television shows in American history, and were part of the fabric of our community for decades after the show ended.
J.P. Patches served as a mentor and a friend to thousands of people over three generations!
We are creating a Patches Pals Washington State Special License Plate to commemorate and pay tribute to the indelible impact and legacy JP and Gertrude left after decades of tireless giving.
The proceeds from this fundraiser are used to start the application process and to cover the costs of entering these new plates into the Washington Department of Licensing system.
NOTE: You do not need to cover any overage/transaction fees if you donate here. Seattle Children's Hospital will still receive 97% of the money.
If you are more comfortable writing a check directly to Seattle Children's Hospital and bypassing online payment altogether, you may do so this way:
Seattle Children's Hospital
PO Box 5371, S-200
Seattle, WA 98145
Reference "JP Patches Plate Donation."
We will still be able to tag your donation as an "offline donation" and track the progress here.
When the Patches Pals plates actually launch, the net proceeds from the plates will benefit Seattle Children's Hospital - an organization that was very dear to Chris and Bob.
Let's further JP and Gertrude's mission for bringing healing into children's lives by making the Patches Pals Special Plate a reality!
We need a minimum of 3,500 signatures to complete the application process. You can sign it here: http://www.jppatches.com/patches-pal-license-plate/
Note: All proceeds from this fundraising campaign go directly to Seattle Children's Hospital and are considered tax-deductible. These proceeds are ONLY for the Patches Pals special plates application process and not for the actual plates.
