During this quarantine, I’m sure a lot of you have gotten familiar with using “Zoom”, the video-chatting app where you can talk with friends and family. Well, how would you like to have a Zoom call with... Clayton Kershaw?

Now’s your chance!

Over the course of the next two weeks, Kershaw’s Challenge will be raising funds that will directly go towards COVID-19 relief efforts for “Behind Every Door” in Dallas and the “Dream Center” in Los Angeles. For every dollar that’s raised, Kershaw and his wife Ellen are going to match it.

For every $50 donation that is made to the campaign, your name will be entered for a chance to win a call with Kershaw. On Wednesday, April 28th, FIVE winners will be drawn for a one-on-one Zoom chat with the man himself.

You can learn more information on their website.

Speaking of Kershaw, he’ll be one of 50 MLB players that will be teaming up to provide over four million meals as part of ‘Home Plate Project’ initiative to address childhood hunger due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A league-wide initiative by all 30 MLB Clubs and over 50 Major League players has raised nearly $1 million, providing over 4 million meals to support childhood hunger prevention in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 20 million students in the United States and Canada rely on school-provided free or reduced-price meals. With schools shut down, players personally reached out to each other to collect donations as part of the Home Plate Project, a partnership between Major League Baseball, Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation and _Big League Impact_, which was founded by St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright, and is currently led by Wainwright and Texas Rangers pitcher Kyle Gibson.
