New York, NY – It’s Wednesday night and this has been the wettest and slowest week of the year. Despite the horrific weather my city has been enduring, the Christmas season has been dampened.

Based on my apartment building’s smell of pine, many of my neighbors have purchased Christmas trees. In addition to the pine smell, the FedEX and UPS workers have already started working overtime as they’re leaving tons and ton of boxes at my neighbors doorstep. I’m all for Christmas but has the season become too commercial?

Where’s Charlie Brown when you need him? Maybe it’s time for me to purchase Christmas cards that I’m never going to mail and eventually donate to my local Goodwill store. It’s my tradition and no matter how quirky it is, it’s mine.

Changing the subject, here goes… Robinson Cano. Earlier today, I received an email regarding his upcoming event for his foundation, RC22 Foundation.

With that said, here’s the message I was sent…

The RC22 Foundation, a 501c3 public charity founded by Seattle Mariners’ second baseman, Robinson Cano, will oversee a flood relief drive to support victims of recent severe flooding in the Dominican Republic.

Robinson Cano will host the effort at The 40/40 Club in Manhattan where the public is encouraged to donate the following items: pantry items (canned/packaged dry goods), hygiene products, clothing for children and adults, shoes/sneakers, linens/bedding, paper products and other home necessities.

In addition, The RC22 Foundation has compiled an Amazon Wish List for those unable to attend the official flood relief drive but are still interested in donating. You can click here

The RC22 Foundation is working with local organization in the Dominican Republic to allocate donations to communities most severely impacted.

The mission of the RC22 Foundation is to positively impact the lives of underserved children and communities both locally and globally. Since its inception in 2010, the RC22 Foundation has established and engaged in various initiatives that expand opportunities for improved outcomes in the areas of youth development and community healthcare.
