THE VICTIMS OF THE NORTHERN CALIFORNIA "707" WILDFIRES NEED A GRAND SLAM FROM US!

I'm Major League Baseball Champion, Jonny Gomes.  I've played professional baseball around the globe but the 707 area code of Northern California is my home.  My friends are there.  My family is there.  I grew up playing ball in the fields and streets of Santa Rosa,  Petaluma, Sonoma, Napa and beyond.  That's why you see "707" proudly displayed on my cleats.  These people are my neighbors!

Now I need you to help me give back to the thousands affected by this horrific catastrophe.  Kids are without homes and schools.  People have nothing but the clothes on their back.  My hometown is a wasteland of ash and rubble. You and I are going to change that!

The residents of these affected communities don't need a home run from us - they need a GRAND SLAM!   Give now and I will work with the people and  organizations in the area to ensure that we are bringing home a win.  When I identify a need I will allocate your donation swiftly, ethically and honestly.  Let's do this!

I'm closing this relief fund now so that I can begin distributing the funds through the special bank account I opened to manage this money. I'll be personally delivering about 50% of these funds via gift card to a few community leaders I know personally. They are doing hand-over-fist work with those who need it most and will be on the front lines of this relief effort for a while, so able to distribute these gift cards to families who need them.

I've also worked out a deal with Under Armor where they will give me 50% off equipment purchased. With about 30% of what's raised on this campaign, I will be buying and delivering equipment for families and little leagues who lost their ability to play because of the fires.

With the last 20%, I'm thinking about helping our local fire dept with their toy drive and using these funds as other needs come up in the community.

I'll keep a full accounting of all funds raised! Thank you for supporting the 707.

All. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support. So many people are still without homes and work. Add to that that it is raining today. The fight has just begun. JG.

Sorry for not updating all of you awesome people in the past few days. I've been out in the community supporting these desperate kids, moms and dads.

It's worse than the TV could ever portray. The smell of smoke and ash is one I'll never forget. The pain and suffering that these communities are facing is unfathomable. We have a lot of work to do...A LOT. Give now, give again! JG
