Donate to Bright Side Night and the Suns will match ticket sales through the end of December!

Merry Christmas!

On this day of giving to others of our spirits and our wallets, we at Bright Side implore you to do something very very good for someone you don’t even know.

Make a child’s Christmas that much better. Donate to Bright Side Night and I’ll make sure to get those kids to the January 7, 2020 game.

Every $9 you donate sends TWO more kids to a game.

  • What: Sacramento Kings at Phoenix Suns
  • When: January 7, 2020 — Tuesday night, 7:00 PM
  • Where: Talking Stick Resort Arena, Phoenix, Arizona

Click this link to donate: Suns.com/Brightside

And if you’re still looking for a gift for that relative who has everything, tell them you donated to Bright Side Night on THEIR behalf! Print the certificate below, and hand it to them as your gift to them.

They’re happy because they don’t have to return the dumb gift you were going to settle for buying them. And you’re happy because you not only donate to a good cause, you’re also satisfying said relative AND you’re getting something out of it for yourself. WIN-WIN-WIN.

Donate here, starting as little as $9: suns.com/brightside

Why are we here

We want to give back to the Phoenix community. I feel very fortunate to have a roof over my head and a little spending money in my pocket. And it occurred to me that I can do a lot more good with this here website than I could most any other way.

So that’s where you come in. I don’t ask you for much. There’s no subscription fee. No incessant pop-ups. No click-baiting. No slide-show articles that force you to click over and over to get to the end.

You don’t pay a dime for exclusive Suns coverage all day, all night, 365 days a year. We publish unique REAL analysis more than 1,000 times a year. Plus free podcasts, for those who like that kind of thing.

All I want from you is $9. And it’s not even for me.

Just give the money to an underprivileged kid in the form of a ticket to an NBA game. The money isn’t for me. In fact, I’m giving hundreds a year of my own money to pay for the not-free custom t-shirts as well as whatever I’ve got left over for tickets for them.
