Baseballism Launches “Stay Home” Collection, All Proceeds Going to #GetUsPPE


Estimated Reading Time: 2 Minutes

Baseballism is a brand I have long admired. In the past, they have created one of a kind baseball merchandise for lovers of the game across the globe. My bachelor party stopped in at their Cooperstown location and almost completely outfitted ourselves in Baseballism from head to toe.

Now, they are switching things up a bit.

In an e-mail sent out to customers, Baseballism announced a new collection, appropriately named the Stay Home Effort.

“Baseballism is joining the fight against COVID19 with the Stay Home Effort.  All proceeds from each Stay Home piece sold go to the manufacturing/purchasing of N95 masks. Masks will be donated to #GetUsPPE. getusppe.org,” the e-mail stated.

GetUsPPE.org is a grassroots organization asking companies and individuals to donate their personal protective equipment (PPE for short) to hospitals and other health organizations on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis. The site also allows healthcare professionals to request PPE should they become in need.

“Healthcare workers are the front line fighters against the COVID-19 pandemic. However, they are now facing critical shortages of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) nationwide,” the website state on its homepage.

“PPE ensures the safety of our healthcare workers so they can continue to care for our loved ones. Please join us today in helping to find, make, and bring PPE to our healthcare heroes.”

If you have PPE, or might know some who does, please go to GetUsPPE.org to find more information on where to donate your much-needed supplies. However, if that’s not you, consider purchasing a piece of the Stay Home collection from Baseballism.

If you are unable to do either of those things, please stay home. Healthcare professionals across the country are coming into work for us, we need to stay home for them.

This article is not a paid partnership. I just really like Baseballism, and I really love all of my family and friends who are fighting this virus every day. The courage and strength they show on a daily basis should be celebrated, but more importantly, it needs to be supported. Consider helping if you can. Thanks.
