Head & Shoulders #WHIFF Promo Back for 2014; See a Strikeout, Tweet #WHIFF @Brewers
This season, the Head & Shoulders“Season of the Whiff” is back and smells better than ever. Last season, we encouraged fans to support local RBI Leagues by tweeting #WHIFF at their Club Twitter handle for every strikeout they saw, resulting in over $140,000 in donations for Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI).
And this season, they are upping their game. In addition to donating $1 to the national RBI program for every strikeout during the 2014 MLB regular season, the seven MLB teams with the most #Whiff tweets each month will win donations for their local RBI leagues.
Here’s how Brewers fans can help! When a Brewers pitcher strikes out an opposing batter, make sure to jump on Twitter and tweet: #WHIFF and include our handle, @Brewers.
Simple as this:
That’s all you have to do! Each month, if we’re in the top 7 teams, we can win anywhere from $2,500 to $10,000 for our local RBI program. AND the team with the most #Whiff tweets for the season will receive an additional $20,000 donation!
About the RBI Program
Reviving Baseball in the Inner Cities, is a urban youth baseball initiative that was developed by former scout and Major Leaguer John Young in Los Angeles in 1989 to provide youth an opportunity to learn and enjoy the game of baseball.
The RBI program encourages participating in baseball while providing youth with a positive, team-oriented activity that challenges them mentally and physically. The program also uses baseball to emphasize academics and community responsibility.
So… I don’t know about you, but I’m never one to back down from a challenge. See a whiff, tweet a #Whiff @Brewers and let’s win some money for a great cause!
