In Honor of Jackie Robinson

I wanted to do something extra special this year for Jackie Robinson day. Not only did Jackie break the color barrier for Major League baseball, but he was such an inspiration to many. Ken Griffey Jr was the first to start wearing the number 42 on this special day and now every player wears that number on April 15th.

I came up with this idea to donate to a charity. At first, I was going to donate to one charity in the amount of $420 dollars. And then I thought about donating to five or six charities to the tune of $4.20. Then I decided to donate to a whole bunch of charities by giving .42 cents to as many honorable ones that I could find. Well, I found about 10. And since I’m not rich, I narrowed it down to about five. Here’s the list of charities I donated my .42 cents to:

Kevin Youkilis’ Hit for Kids

Bud Norris’ Candlelighters Charity

Brad Ziegler’s Pasttime for Patriots Charity

Edgar Martinez Foundation

Tony La Russa’s ARF Foundation


Some charities wouldn’t accept my .42 cents so I ended up donating $1.00. There were quite a few foundations/charities that I tried to donate to. For various reasons on their part, donating never happened. Here’s a list of foundations I attempted to donate to:

The Jamie Moyer Foundation

Josh Willimgham’s Foundation

Curtis Granderson’s Charity

Hopefully, these pages get fixed soon so I can finish what I set out to accomplish. I just got overly frustrated by the lack of updating on some of these pages. Some of them didn’t even work. How can a guy donate his hard-earned cash to charities when the page is not working? Anyway. Enough of that. Leave a comment if you have a charity you’d like me to donate to or hit me up on Twitter at @MLBwayneMLB. I’d be happy to send some donations your way, for sure!
