Justin Masterson will represent the Cleveland Indians in the Major League Baseball All-Star game July 16 at Citi Field in New York. More importantly, Masterson is also representing his savior through fundraising efforts for desolate youth in Africa.
Masterson and his wife Meryl have teamed with Bright Hope in its Feed Their Future campaign dedicated to bringing hope to 1,400 students living in the Mathare Valley slum in Nairobi, Kenya, who are currently enrolled in one of four schools Bright Hope supports. The campaign runs through August 16 with a goal of $140,000—which will feed and educate 1,400 students for one year. The first week of the campaign has raised $18,220.
“God gives us gifts and we are to use them for His purposes,” Masterson said. “I’m looking forward to contributing to what God is doing through Bright Hope.”
