Baseball players from 60 schools in 27 different states and Washington D.C. have donated a total of $12,004 to the Red Cross disaster relief efforts through the "Pinch Hit For Haiti" program, spearheaded by Elon senior catcher Mike Melillo. A map tracking the donations is available here.
Donations in the name of Elon total $3,659, while Charlotte checks in with $1,076 toward the total. Sacramento State added $1,200 to the total after donating the proceeds from their first-ever Martin Luther King Jr. Day Fundamentals Camp toward the project.
Here's how to contribute:
As a team:
1. An individual from your school collects $1.00 from each member of the team.
2. That individual visits www.redcross.org and donates the amount collected via credit or debit card.
3. Once the process has been completed, Red Cross will provide you with a page that has your tracking number, name, and the amount donated.
4. Copy the information and paste it into an email document.
5. Email the information along with your team/school name to firstname.lastname@example.org
6. Pay it forward and tell as many student-athletes as you can about our objective.
