I like to take some time every now and then and cruise through all the sites on Aerys Sports (and there are a lot of them). I have been noticing a reoccurring theme as I read through all the MLB, NFL, NHL and NBA teams. Charity! There are multiple posts about teams raising money for disaster relief in Japan and activities dedicated to raise awareness for cancer. You will read about events that teams are hosting and you will read about how some of the Aerys own correspondents are taking the reigns and raising money themselves.
Hey, I made it easy! I have listed all the posts here for you! Go ahead and read! Especially Stephâ€™s Charm City Yakyuu post â€œHelp Me Help Japanâ€. She uses her amazing artistic abilities to create drawings to raise donations for Red Cross.
