Last year we raised a little money for “The Rays Baseball Foundation,” the charity arm of the Tampa Bay Rays. This year we wanted to see if we could come up with a way to raise a little bit more.  Our idea comes from the guys at River Ave. Blues.

Here is how it works…

This year’s pledge drive will be based on the number of home runs the Rays hit during the regular season. If you want to participate, you pledge a certain amount of money for every home run the Rays hit. 

Last year the Rays hit 199 home runs. If you want to pledge $0.05 for every home run, that would have been $9.95. If you had pledged $0.25 for every home run, your total donation at the end of the year would have been $49.75.

And please don’t be ashamed to pledge only $0.05 or $0.10 per home run. Those pledges add up very quickly, and every little bit helps.

At the end of the year we collect the donations via PayPal or you can send us a check or money order. Just send us your pledge in an email at THIS ADDRESS, or at the “TIPS/COMMENTS” link above.

Thanks in advancce to all those who participate.
