A note from Play it Forward Pittsburgh
Attention, Steelers Nation!
You could join the Men of Black and Gold on a Steelers Travel Experience to an AFC North divisional away game in 2018. You choose the game and you and a friend will travel from Pittsburgh with the team and stay with them in their hotel. We’ll even fly you and a friend to Pittsburgh if you don’t live there! We’ll also cover your dinner and transportation to and from the game, where you’ll score pre-game field access and VIP seats to cheer on the Steeler Nation. Plus, you’ll get to take home some great autographed Steelers merchandise.
All it takes is a minimum $10 donation benefiting Play It Forward Pittsburgh, an amazing organization improving pediatric transplant outcomes for patients around the world. If you want to donate more, you’ll get more chances to win and some cool Steelers merch.
Start packing your Black and Gold! Good luck!

About Play it Forward Pittsburgh
Play it Forward Pittsburgh is a movement of leading community institutions, citizens, and professional sports teams who are joining forces to raise awareness about organ donation and transplantation, register donors, fund groundbreaking research projects, and save lives.
22 Americans die every day waiting for a life-saving organ. More than 117,000 people are currently on the national organ transplant wait list, including nearly 8,000 in Pennsylvania. Despite being home to some of the top transplant centers in the world, only about half of eligible Pittsburgh residents are registered organ donors, which contributes to the shortage of organs in the region.
In December 2016, the Pittsburgh Steelers confirmed their participation in a White House initiative to reduce the organ waiting list and help more people access organ transplants. In true team fashion, Pittsburgh's other two major sports franchises—the Pirates and the Penguins—quickly embraced the cause and Play It Forward Pittsburgh was born. Our citywide campaign is bringing together the biggest names in Pittsburgh sports, business, entertainment and medicine to get every eligible resident registered as organ donors, raise funds to support the Starzl Center for Pediatric Transplantation Excellence and educate the whole city over the course of one season.
Every donation help will help fund groundbreaking research and save lives through the establishment of the new Starzl Pediatric Transplant Outcomes Network in partnership with Children’s Hospital Pittsburgh of UPMC. The vision is a network of pediatric transplant institutions committed to continuous improvement until every child can achieve a long and healthy life.
