Most professional athletes with even greater fame and fortune than Shane, DON'T give back to their communities. Almost as soon as Shane received his first "real" contract, the Shane Victorino Foundation. They didn't go out and buy a plane, vacation homes in foreign countries, or other ridiculously lavish things. This just goes to show the ultimate character of these two amazing people. I have seen, first hand, the grateful recipients of Shane & Melissa's generosity. Giving the $900,000 to the Boys and Girls Club in Philadelphia, although a large sum, is but a tiny contribution in the greater scheme of things. I have no doubt that the Shane Victorino Foundation will continue to help the communities that it serves. For the first time, in a long time, the underprivileged kids in Philadelphia and on Maui have one thing money can't buy: Hope.

The Great!

I am proud to be involved with the Shane Victorino Foundation for many reasons. Despiite the short history of this foundation, they have already done so much for the communities of Philadelphia and Maui. In my opinion it is more rewarding to be involved with a charity that has a specific focus and is making a dramatic improvement in that area. This foundation has targeted the Boys and Girls Clubs of Philadelphia and Maui. Both of these Clubs are in desperate need. They don't have the books they need. They can't provide food for these hungry kids. The buildings are literally falling down. The Shane Victorino Foundation has set out to change that. Shane Victorino personally made a huge financial commitment and positive change is already taking place. I look forward to doing what I can in the future for this great cause.

Neil-
The Shane Victorino Foundation deserves a lot of credit for what they have done to better enrich communities in Philadelphia and Maui. Any one who can give back to their community, especially the youth is well deserving of praise. The foundation is working hard to renovate a boys and
girls club in a "not so good" part of philadelphia and by doing this, are teaching the kids in the area that through hard work and persistence, anything is possible. When someone like Shane who is often looked up to because of on-field activity becomes a role model off the field, it shows how committed he is to use baseball as a tool for the bigger picture of helping the communities that have been supporting him his whole life. This foundation has helped many kids believe in themselves and trust that they too can do something positive with their lives.

I just recently got involved with the Shane Victorino Foundation and considering that it is not even a year old the work they have done and are doing is very impressive.

I wok with many non profit organizations and few have the clear vision and direction that this one does, especially so
early in its existence. Shane is using the platform that baseball has provided him to do terrific things for kids in Philadelphia and Hawaii and I applaud him for that.

He has put his time and his money ($900K towards a Boys and Girls Club in Philly) where his mouth is...go Shane!

Here is an organization that approaches fund raising in such a fun and unpretentious way. They have a way of making you feel important no matter how you support them. And unlike other organizations that raise funds for needy people/groups, there is never any pressure to keep giving, no one bothering you frequently...just plain good information and caring that makes you want to stay supportive for years to come.

The Great!
