This is a great idea!

 

I'll do the Canucks for Kids Fund by the following:

 

1st Overall: $30

2nd Overall: $20

3rd Overall: $10

 

EDIT: I've decided I'll also do $5 for 6th Overall, as that's probably better than we should expect too.

Gotta say, OP,  you are being quite magnanimous, offering a better donation for that Canucks losing spots in the draft than keeping their base slot of 6th.  Giving not just donating for something good to happen, but digging deeper when it doesn't work out as you would hope.

I love how people think the league would rig it for the oilers. The lottery conspiracy is about american teams remember? If you just keep on changing who the beneficiary is it sounds more like paranoid ramblings than something legit. Oh wait...

I got the idea from a bunch of the people on reddit! Over 100 pledges there now I think! I liked the idea because even if it is a crappy result, you can feel good about it, you know?

Absolutely.  Not sure I would have thought of it, given what you posted from the reddit OP.  Makes it less of a bribe, and more some proactive karma.  Definitely a nice way of looking at it all.

I'm of the mind that if the Oilers win first overall, it would convince me that it's not rigged. It would be an absolute PR nightmare and go against all the parity talk if they were to win. I am trying so hard to believe that the Canucks will win first overall but almost 50 years of disappointment is tough to overcome. 

 

In saying that, I'm in:

Winning the first overall should be like a 200 dollar donation.
