Baltimore Blast Practice In Pajamas for Casey Cares
BALTIMORE, MD – November 29, 2016 – The Casey Cares Foundation teamed up with the Baltimore Blast on #GivingTuesday, a day to inspire charitable giving around the world, to help raise awareness for the non-profit’s program which provides new pairs of pajamas to critically ill kids.
Today is #GivingTuesday, and the Baltimore Blast practiced in pajamas to show its commitment to Casey Cares and the nearly 800 critically ill kids it will serve this year alone.
Casey Cares has provided tens of thousands of new pairs of pajamas to critically ill children who are being treated at more than 100 hospitals throughout the country.
Providing pajamas for critically ill kids is just one of the many programs Casey Cares provides throughout the year. In 2015, we provided 1 activity every 56 minutes and since 2000, have engaged 90,000 program participants – taking families to sporting events, concerts and tourist attractions in addition to providing much-needed support.
“We are so excited to team up with the Baltimore Blast to help us raise awareness for our Casey Cares pajama program,” said Casey Cares founder and executive director Casey Baynes. “We love seeing the Blast soccer players and coach Kevin Healey going all in on this with their PJs! Our kids and their families are going through such difficult times with rigorous medical treatments, so having the Blast supporting them is such a huge boost for their spirits, especially for the holidays.”
