WHY I BELIEVE IN HIGH SOCKS FOR HOPE

You’ve read us a thousand times and you know that not only do we believe in David Robertson as the future of the New York Yankees, but we love his wife Erin as well and all the 2 of them do for the people of Tuscaloosa, Alabama whose lives were ripped apart back on April 27th 2011. Shortly after horrible tragedy, High Socks for Hope was created, after all, it was David’s hometown and he was trying to make a difference. He has and now Bleeding Yankee Blue is joining in as well.

After much thought, we here at Bleeding Yankee Blue have decided to do the right thing, we’re going to pitch in and help High Socks for Hope... the best way we can. Sure, there are many charities and foundations that need help, and over time, maybe we can contribute to more, but for now, High Socks for Hope is our charity and it can be yours too….Check it out, this is what we want to accomplish...

Starting on April 6th tomorrow, the first day of the Yankees season and ending on the last day of the regular season, we here at Bleeding Yankee Blue have decided to donate $1 dollar for every BYB shirt you purchase with us. So... quite simply, if you buy a Bleeding Yankee Blue shirt, one of your dollars will be put into a collection and at the end of the season, we will present a check to High Socks for Hope, from all of us, people that believe in doing the right thing for people in need.

But that’s not all, in addition to that tally, we’ll also donate $1 of our own money to the foundation for every strikeout David collects throughout the entire regular season.

Look, I could sit here and tell you that I just want to collect all the dough we make from our Bleeding Yankee Blue shirts and just roll around it on my bed like I’m in the sequel to Indecent Proposal…a visual you probably don’t want to see anyway… so why not do something important, right?

At the end of the day, we’re on this planet to help each other out. Sure, you can choose to work hard every day and provide for your own family, and we all do that, I do…. but I’ve become fond of the Robertson's. I can tell I like them as people and I believe in their cause. I would even suggest they're "friend's in my head" as the saying goes. From what I can tell, they’re great people. I know you guys love seeing David mow them down and he is without question the future of the New York Yankees. So, take a moment starting on April 6th, go to the left side of BYB, Look for Mikey’s Dad’s picture and click on BUY NOW. Buy a shirt, support BYB and support High Socks for Hope. Let’s make a difference as a family…a big Yankee family.
