Texas Rangers Pitcher Cole Hamels Makes Massive Donation
If I were to become a multi millionaire, this is the kind of thing I hope I could do.
And being a Texas Rangers fan, this story makes me even prouder to root for the team.
Rangers pitcher, Cole Hamels, has donated his and his wife's dream home and the 100 acres of land it sits on in Missouri to Camp Barnabas, a group that provides camping experiences for those with special needs according to the Springfield News-Leader.
Sorry, I got a little dust in my eye.
The 32,000 square foot home is the largest donation received by the organization.
Cole Hamels had this to say,
“There are tons of amazing charities in southwest Missouri. Out of all of these, Barnabas really pulled on our heartstrings. Seeing the faces, hearing the laughter, reading the stories of the kids they serve; there is truly nothing like it. Barnabas makes dreams come true, and we felt called to help them in a big way.”
This was supposed to have been the Hamel's family dream home, according to their attorney, but when Cole was traded to the Texas Rangers, the family relocated to Texas according to ktxs.com.
Cole has just demonstrated the true meaning of the Christmas season. Thank you Cole and Go Rangers!
