Striking Out Poverty is off to a great start in 2018!
Nine Dominican communities. Syrian Refugees. Nine ballplayers. Nine Innings.
With the goal of providing a baseball field, water irrigation and filtration, and a farm to nine communities in the Dominican, while also providing relief for the Syrian Refugee Crisis, Big League Impact players and Food for the Hungry advocates have raised over $107,000. That is already more than the 103k that we raised for our Haiti project last year.
Thus far; Dee Gordon, Luke Weaver, Nick Ahmed, Michael Wacha, Tyler Lyons, Liam Hendriks, Chase Anderson and Mike Mayers have all made pledge commitments, and Adam Wainwright has matched $57,000 of their donations.
That is already enough for three baseball fields, two water irrigation and filtration projects, three farms and 30k in diapers and milk for Syrian refugees. Yes, that’s right, Dee Gordon is turning stolen bases into milk and diapers for refugees. How awesome is that?
