Mark Sanchez

Getting Help from Dad

for 9/11 Fundraising Mission

QB Mark Sanchez is marking the 10th anniversary of 9/11 with a new fundraising campaign to benefit the families of fallen NY firefighters ... with a little help from his dad (and Ron Howard).

Mark -- who moonlights as a GQ model -- has designed a new vintage-style designer t-shirt and has put them up for sale ... with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the families of fallen firefighters via the New York Police & Fire Widows’ & Children's Benefit Fund and the FDNY Foundation.

The shirt features the slogan "You Go, We Go" -- a line suggested by Mark's father Nick Sanchez ... a veteran firefighter ... and obvious fan of the Ron Howard movie "Backdraft" ... where the quote originated.

You can get the shirts HERE.

If Sanchez would just donate a $1 for every ho he's banged. this fund would be off to a great start.

It's a nice gesture and all but I think the survivors have been given plenty of money. I would hate to see Uchitel get her paws on it also. She's been given enough.

Nice gesture, but the families of the fallen firefighters were more than taken care of at the time. A nicer gesture would be to donate the proceeds to the families of the regular office workers, janitorial staff, restaurant staff, etc., who did not receive hundreds of thousands, some even millions, of dollars.

Unless you are a family member of a fallen firefighter, you shouldn't really be posting about how they were taken care of. This is a wonderful gesture!

Who "moonlights" as a GQ model? That's like I work the graveyard shift at Tiffanys.

Excellent Mark. For those of you who are saying the Fireman have received enough money and help tell that to the many firemen dealing the the cancerous site of the twin towers.

Considering the state of the country, and the last ten years having been pretty lousy, I think we should play down 9/11. We all remember it like it was yesterday. Why dredge it up again? We could remember it when the new (badly designed) project is finished being built.
Right now we're just heaping depressing on depressing.
