Donating To Nick Swisher's Charity

I just wanted to post one final reminder about the little charity pledge drive I'm trying to do this year for Nick Swisher's charity, Swish's Wishes. It doesn't look like the page on Nick's site is working but the charity is dedicated to enriching lives and lifting the spirits of children who are facing vital health issues while providing care, comfort and support through the most difficult of times. How can you not want to donate to that?

My pledge is this: For every HR Nick Swisher hits I will donate $10 to his charity.

Thankfully, I am not alone in this call to action. A few of my Yankee blogger compadres are joining in. Dan (from Bronx Baseball Daily and WasWatching), Conor (from 6 Pound 8 Ounce Baby Joba) and Fernando (from Respect Jeter's Gangster) are all taking part. We would sincerely appreciate it if you joined us in our mission to raise money for Nick's charity. No donation is too small. How much you'd donate is personal preference. Personally, I'm looking to donate between $200-300, which is how I came up with $10 per HR. Nick hit 29 dingers last year so it would have been $290 had I done this last year.

If you want to contribute, please let us know. We're (hopefully) going to track the overall amount on our respective blogs (see upper left) and we'd love to add your pledge amount to the total. We encourage you to participate as it's for a good cause, but no one should feel as if they have to. The more the merrier.

Dan, Conor, Fernando and I thank you for your time.

Peace, love and Pinstripes,
