Text "DC" To 90999
It's not too late to make your $5 donation.
Sunday was Washington Nationals Dream Foundation Day at Nationals Park. Our Team's Charitable Arm was recognized for its ongoing support provided throughout Washington, DC and the surrounding communities. The Foundation's three cornerstone projects were presented on a video played on The HDTV Scoreboard--providing details of the many efforts put forth by The Dream Foundation.
Additionally, all volunteers from this past Friday Morning's NatsTown GreenUp wishing to attend this afternoon's game against The Baltimore Orioles were publicly thanked on the field before the start. The entire contingent taking a group photo while receiving a nice ovation from those on hand at Nationals Park.
Throughout today's games, fans were encouraged to donate $5 toward The Dream Foundation through a specially set up Dream Foundation text message number. By just placing a "DC" to 90999 text from any one's cell phone, a $5 donation would be accepted by the charitable arm of Our Washington Nationals Baseball Club. Sohna and I did so this afternoon.
Finally, The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation Kiosk in Centerfield Plaza this afternoon started selling their specially designed reusable totes. The Eco-Friendly Green with Blue Curly "W" Bags are available for $5 and will be on sale for every single home game for the remainder of 2009--until they sell out. The African Queen and I picked up two this afternoon before the start of this 11 game homestand's final game.
Text "DC" to 90999 is still a good number and you can help the ongoing work of The Dream Foundation by sending your $5 donation today. The creation of The DC Baseball Academy; the construction of The Washington Nationals Pediatric Diabetes Care Complex at the Children's National Medical Center; and The Neighborhood Initiatives Projects--which include partnerships with The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, The Earth Conservation Corps and other local non-profits await your support.
And remember, the $5 Eco-Friendly Curly "W" Totes will be available at every single home game at The Dream Foundation Kiosk in Centerfield Plaza until they sellout. Reminder--it's all for a good cause to help others in need. Yes, you too can go green at Nationals Park!!
