As Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers prepare for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final on Friday, May 29, the Henrik Lundqvist Foundation is proud to announce its #Donate30for30 campaign.
In addition to supporting Henrik and the Rangers on the ice in their quest to reach the Stanley Cup Final, the campaign enables Rangers fans worldwide to assist Henrik in raising money for charities close to his heart. The campaign encourages people to donate $30 for #30 in support of children’s health and education charities in NYC such as Food Bank for NYC and Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, as well as Henrik Lundqvist Foundation’s partners abroad.

In 2015, Henrik partnered with celebrities for the MSG Networks series “The Mask with Henrik Lundqvist”. The five-part series featured Henrik in one-on-one interviews with Mario Batali, Michael J. Fox, Tiesto, Jeff Gordon, and John McEnroe, as they designed one-of-a-kind goalie masks that Henrik wore during the 2014-15 season. Over $220,000 has been raised through The Mask with Henrik Lundqvist’s event, auction and related campaigns.
Lundqvist is one of three finalists for the 2014-15 NHL Foundation Player Award, which is presented to “an NHL player who applies the core values of hockey – commitment, perseverance and teamwork – to enrich the lives of people in his community.”
The Henrik Lundqvist Foundation, through its fundraising efforts and community outreach, strives to create positive change in the lives of children and adults throughout the world through education and health services. To learn more visit www.HLundqvistFoundation.com.
