Pitcher/author/blogger extraordinaire Dirk Hayhurst (AKA @TheGarfoose on Twitter) is passionate about helping others as well. He’s set up this site for those who want to donate to the survivors of the earthquake in Japan:
***From Mr. Garfoose***
I’m an athlete, for the time being, and as long as I am one I will use my platform for as much positive impact as I can. I’ll never tell you you MUST donate to a cause I champion, but I will do my best to encourage you toward things I think will help those in need or at disadvantage. And I’ll use any means I can to “help” you do so. So, if you if make a donation of $50 or greater, save the confirmation screen shot, then email it to me along with your phone number, I’ll call you via Skype and thank you personally— and yes, we can talk about Godizlla and Baseball, if you want.
Even if you donate at another site of your choosing, my offer stands: confirmation screen shot, phone number= happy time chat. I’ll run this phone call option for the next 48 hours. Donate between now and then, and we’ll chat. If it goes really well, I’ll extend it.
Thanks for listening, caring, and acting.
And thank you, Mr. Hayhurst, for sharing, caring, and acting yourself.
