While residents across the Bay Area practice social distancing, the Oakland A’s are teaching us to “bash” in an age where handshakes and high-fives are losing their luster. Although the A’s would prefer to be bashing home runs, bashing forearms is a great way to celebrate without spreading disease!
San Francisco 49ers
#NationalPuppyDay may have already come and gone, but every day is a great day to celebrate puppies. The San Francisco 49ers are encouraging fans to send in their best photos and videos of “K9ers” in their cutest scarlet and gold outfits.

Oakland just announced they’re closing schools until April because of the COVID-19 crisis. While we support this decision, we’re concerned about what this means for childhood hunger in our hometown. More than 18,000 students in Oakland rely on their school for 2+ meals each day and our foundation @eatlearnplay is making a donation to @accfb and @feedingamerica to help ensure no child has to worry about where their next meal is coming from while schools are closed. Please join us by donating to @ACCFB or a food bank near you. Link in bio
Golden State Warriors Point Guard Steph Curry is once again using his superstar power for good by helping to raise money for the meals of local students impacted by school closures. Children across the Bay Area rely on meals from our public schools, and you can make a massive difference within our community by donating to a variety of different services.

The hockey season has been abruptly cut short and this isn’t stopping the San Jose Sharks mascot from “yolking around” in the kitchen. The sports world may be in a stand-still, but SJ Sharkie shows us how to find joy in the little things.Back to Blog
