Matt Kemp To Donate $1,000 For Every Home Run To Oklahoma Tornado Victims
(CBS) We’ve seen this type of behavior from Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp before.
Earlier this month, Kemp gave his jersey, shoes and glove to a disabled Dodgers fan after a game, and now, he’s at it again.
In the wake of the Oklahoma tornado that has taken dozens of lives, Kemp has pledged to donate $1,000 to relief efforts for every home run hit between now and the All-Star Game.
Kemp, who grew up in Oklahoma, has two home runs on the season.
I'm giving $1000 for tonight's HR and every HR until the All-Star break for the victims of my hometown in OKC. #PrayforOklahoma—
