Proceeds benefit Big League Impact Foundation
Based on 76 strikeouts, each worth $108.68
Baseball has given me the opportunity to travel and see many parts of the country and the world. During those travels, I have seen extreme poverty and hunger firsthand.
This season, I’m taking the mound with a renewed purpose - to strike out poverty for some of the world’s most vulnerable people. I’m joining up with Adam Wainwright’s Big League Impact and its mission to help meet basic human needs like food, clean water, medical care and shelter. Big League Impact has teamed up with Striking Out Poverty, an initiative of Food for the Hungry, in an effort to restore dignity and hope to people in our local communities and around the globe.
Please join me in making a Big League Impact by pledging a donation for every strikeout that I record from Opening Day to the All Star break. I’m kicking off the campaign by personally pledging $40 for every strikeout. Adam Wainwright has agreed to match up to $75,000 that we collectively raise, so anything you give will have triple the impact!
This season I am focusing our efforts to provide a water purification system in the community of Reparadero.
Reparadero is a rural community located near Yamasá in the Monte Plata Province, which is about an hour north from Santo Domingo. Food for the Hungry has been walking alongside this community since July 2015. The community of Reparadero has roughly 360 families and a population of 1260 people.
Reparadero lacks access to clean water and therefore is exposed to water borne illnesses that keep children out of school, elevate medical costs and continue the cycle of poverty. A water purification system will provide this community with the means to purify their current water source giving them access to safe and clean water.
We need to raise $17,865 to fully fund this project.
The first 25 pledgers who pledge at least $1/strikeout or donation total equals at least $75 will receive a Chase Anderson signed baseball.
ULTIMATE PHOTO OP PACKAGE* - Anyone who pledges at least $2 per strikeout, or makes a minimum one-time donation of at least $150 will be entered to win:
2 Field Level Tickets
Pre-Game On Field Photo with Chase Anderson for 2 People
BATTING PRACTICE WATCH and MEET & GREET PACKAGE* - Anyone whose total donation equals $500 or more will be entered to win:
*EXTENDED!!! One winner will be selected for each package. Selection will be done on 7/31/18 and game date is TBD.
