We’ve got the 12th Man Spirit!

Posted by on Jan 11, 2014 in Blog

With the Seattle Seahawks competing in the NFC Divisional Championship tomorrow against the New Orleans Saints, today is an extra special Blue Friday and the city is a buzz with excitement! The 12th Man logo is popping up all over town and we decided Vinnie needed to get in the spirit! Vinnie is our ENORMOUS inflatable Duck balloon that sits on our roof at our Seattle Center location. He’s surprisingly much larger than you would think and the Seahawks Team Shop was unfortunately out of quadruple-double-macchiato-XXL Russell Wilson jerseys. With true, make-it-happen 12th Man spirit, our Marketing Director teamed up with Operations and after many discussions about how big Vinnie actually is, we finally decided on his jersey specs. But, the million dollar question was: How would we actually create this jersey monstrosity? Enter the amazing wife of our Director of Operations! Not only does she put up with her husband’s long hours and infamously dirty clothes, she’s a master seamstress! Vinnie’s jersey is hand-crafted from 4 giant king-size sheets! After sewing the sheets together, we painstakingly sewed the sleeves on, plus a 12th Man Flag and voila! The biggest Seahawks jersey in Seattle was created! It was a blustery, cold morning, but with the help of our entire...

2013 Stuff the Duck a HUGE Success!

Posted by on Dec 20, 2013 in Blog, Community

Ride the Ducks is thrilled to donate $10,000 to Starlight Children’s Northwest along with toys we have collected for this holiday season! Our 2nd annual Stuff the Duck toy drive was a huge success and we are honored to partner with such an incredible organization. Starlight Northwest works hard year-round to help seriously-ill children and their families cope with their pain, fear and isolation through entertainment, education and family activities.   This year’s Stuff the Duck kicked off with the Macy’s Parade in downtown Seattle, where we filled three Ducks with Starlight families and drove them through the parade! We had a blast with the families on board and were overjoyed to give them the opportunity to participate in this Seattle holiday tradition.  We also collected new toys and games for Starlight Northwest from November 29th through December 18th at our Seattle Center and Westlake Center locations. After weeks of soliciting donations and filling our toy bins, we are excited to donate all the items to Starlight in hopes of making the holidays a little brighter for seriously-ill children and their families. In addition, we are adding a $10,000 donation to help this organization with all of their amazing...
