I have a couple of Subway announcements on my dad blog today. First, thanks to Subway (Facebook | Twitter), I’m giving away a prize pack. Second, Subway is partnering with Little League Baseball and Softball for the second annual Baseball DeSIGNS Tour, which is an eBay auction that benefits the Little League Urban Initiative. Portland Public Schools could sure use Subway’s help. The school district almost cut PE entirely because of a $19 million budget deficit (note: if the school system receives $7 million in federal stimulus money, then each school will most likely have a half-time PE teacher — not ideal, but better than nothing).
Subway Baseball DeSIGNS
The annual Baseball DeSIGNS Tour features over 30 baseballs designed by Little Leaguers. The balls are autographed by celebrities and athletes (such as Ndamukong Suh (#2 NFL draft pick from Portland), Michael Phelps, Chase Crawford, Backstreet Boys, Britney Snow, CC Sabathia, and Shay Sorrells). The baseballs will be auctioned off on eBay from August 20th to 29th. Unlike some fundraisers, all DeSIGNS proceeds will go the Little League Urban Initiative.
Thanks to Subway Kids (check out their online games for children), a lucky reader of my dad blog will receive a prize pack. The giveaway prize pack consists of a $10 Subway gift card, a Little League reusable meal bag, a baseball, and some fun extras for your kids to design their own ball (just like the Little Leaguers in the Subway Baseball DeSIGNS Tour). The deadline to enter is Tuesday, August 24th (Pacific time). The giveaway is limited to the USA. The winner will be randomly selected. To enter, visit Subway’s Ball DeSigns page and then leave a comment on my dad blog about your favorite autographed baseball.
