Raising money for Pitch for Baseball & Softball as part of my Bar Mitzvah Celebration.Giving is an important part of Judaism. I value Tikklum Olam and Tzedakah. Tikklum Olam is to repair the world through acts of kindness. Tzedakah is giving to charities to the less fortunate. I think this is important because as I walk around Seattle I see so many homeless people and I wish I could get them out of that situation. I think it’s important to repair the world because all people should have equal opportunities to live a comfortable life.
Raising money for baseball equipment for less fortunate children connects to my commitment to giving back to the community. I decided to do this because I really love baseball. It gives me a lot of joy. I want to help others to experience hope and fun to lessen people’s struggles. As a person who has grown up with Crohn’s baseball has let me escape from the pain and feeling different from others. This is why I want everybody to play baseball.
Please consider donating to Pitch for Baseball & Softball. Below is a detailed explanation of the organization's mission.
Founded in 2005, Pitch In For Baseball & Softball believes that baseball and softball are effective tools for youth development. Not only do they give kids a chance to be a kid and play, but it also helps to create healthy communities, break down barriers, and instill valuable life lessons. PIFBS aims to reduce barriers to play and bring communities together by collecting and redistributing much needed baseball/softball equipment to groups serving under-resourced children. Since 2005, PIFB has donated more than $9 million in equipment to help 800,000 kids play ball in every state and 100 countries worldwide.
