LEEIB IN THE COMMUNITY
America's #1 Blog Themed Sports Network!
The LEEIB Community program was created in 2011 with the original purpose of providing and encouraging small community donations and contributions. We believe that small donations and community contributions create big impacts. Since our creation, we've transformed quite a bit. In the early years, we raised money through selling sponsorship's. That money went to several community programs such as the Komen Foundation, New Life Animal Rescue, The American Red Cross, The One Fund, The Jimmy Fund, The Kid's Cancer Buzz-Off, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and more.
In 2013, we created LEEIB Community Day. Community Day was held annually each April and it encouraged people from all walks of life to get out in their communities and make an impact. Blog readers could send in their stories to share.
In 2016, the LEEIB Community program started to recognize show hosts and co-hosts through the Streamy Awards. The Awards became an annual segment on the Nate's Take Super Bowl Special until LEEIB's temporary shut down in 2018. Award winners received gift cards through the program. With the permanent move from the LEEIB Blog to the Sports Network, many of the promotions from the community program were moved to the Nathan's Team Community program.
In 2020, with the relaunch of the Sports Network it was decided that a Community Program would be beneficial to our partners, listeners, and communities. As part of the program, the annual VHFC (Virtual Hockey For Charity) tournament was created. The tournament is comprised of eight virtual NHL teams, each competing for an assigned cause. The winning team has the potential of raising a maximum of $204 with a minimum of $69. The 2020 tournament teams are playing for the following causes: Black Lives Matter, The American Red Cross, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, American Humane, Make A Wish Foundation of Vermont, Guide Dog Foundation, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and Prevent Cancer Foundation.
