I decided to start researching some celebrities to see who might be a good to reach out to to ask to endorse The Everett and Austin Project. Do you have any ideas for me? I’m open.

The first one I decided to reach out to was the New York Yankees since they are my favorite team and Yankee Stadium is less than an hour away. 

The first email I that I could find was to a generic email at mlb.com. They responded very quickly to me with a specific email to write the Yankees at. I went back and forth with mlb.com a little bit because I also love the Mets, Rangers and Twins and found out how to reach out to each of those teams.

While I was dialoguing with MLB (Major League Baseball Charities), I had an offer to help design a logo for The Everett and Austin Project and a letterhead. Part of the requirements for emailing the Yankees is that it be on company letterhead and I didn’t have one yet.

So before I start reaching out to these MLB teams and other celebrities, I’m waiting on the logo and letterhead as it’s being developed by Gabriel Laulunen. See Update 2 regarding this here!

So all good stuff and very exciting. I feel God’s direction and strength. This is all for His glory and truly shows His love and care for the world. I’m very happy to be a part of it!
