Feeling the Love

As you probably know, we’re playing in the NLDS tomorrow. I’m focused!

Your support for your team means so much to the players. Whether you root for the Giants or another team, your support is awesome! It means so much to everyone in baseball to feel the support and involvement of our fans.

Let’s expand our love. Let’s expand its reach from baseball to youth in poverty areas. They need us. There are so many kids in this world who live in poverty, and they will flat-out blossom with our support. Take a moment to click this link and buy yourself an indestructible soccer ball. Take it to school or the park and play with your family and friends. Because when you do, the One World Futbol Project will donate another soccer ball to an organization working with young people in disadvantaged communities. Buy one, give one!

It’s so much fun to play! You laugh and have fun. You bond with your friends or your kids. You dream about the things you can do. And guess what? Kids in poverty will do the same.

You can save a life today!
