Clucks for Bucks at the World SeriesRich Stigall
Anyone in KC knows that tonight is Game 7 of baseball’s Royals/Giants World Series. Tied at three games a piece, five of the last six have been blowouts, including last night’s 10-0 Royals’ triumph. Heading into tonight’s decider, each team is searching for the winning formula. GO Project Champ, Rob Sweeney, may have found it.
Last week Rob and a few other Royals’ fans were in Haiti on an economic development trip. They visited GO Haiti’s chicken farm. They saw it provided pathways (vocational training) for young adults, protein for children, and living-wage jobs (provision) for parents leading families. Pathways. Protein. Provision. What’s not to like?
Last night Rob challenged his friends to donate $10 to ‘Clucks for Bucks’ for every run the Royals scored. Since the Royals hadn’t scored one run in 15 innings, the Haiti guys upped it to $100 per run…just in time for the second inning, seven run offensive explosion on the way to the 10 run shutout.
Royals get Game 6. Clucks for Bucks gets $12,000, 1,200 chickens, 12,000 meals. KC wins! Children win! All from a dozen guys giving $100 per run. What would happen if 10,000 people gave $10 per run? I’m in!
Root for the Royals. Love on children. Game 7 World Series. Clucks for Bucks. It doesn’t get any more fun than this. Are you in?
