The Mercury are once again running their Tickets for Tots program. Here's the details:
PhoenixMercury.com is asking fans to participate in a special initiative, "Mercury Madness," which will allow children from the United Way agencies, Special Olympics and a host of other community groups to experience a Mercury game.
Last season, Phoenix Mercury and Phoenix Suns employees rallied support from the local community to provide more than 10,000 children a chance to enjoy a WNBA game and be exposed to some positive role models. This season, the local hoops organizations are looking to provide even more children the same opportunity and you can help!
Click here to make a donation by purchasing $12 tickets (regularly $43), which will go to deserving children from the Phoenix area; or e-mail Dan Hilton at firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase the tickets for $10 to avoid the online transaction fee.

Everyone who purchases tickets through the promotion will receive a donation letter, so that you can receive the tax benefit of your donation.
In addition to donating tickets you can purchase them for yourself at the discounted price (if you donate also) by contacting Dan Hilton directly.
Bright Side of the Sun is in for two tickets for the kids. How many of you are going to ignore this opportunity to help some kids have fun by going to a Mercury game?
For the price of a couple of sandwiches you can do the right thing so step up!
