Little League gets a big donation

The Southeastern Wisconsin Chevy dealers use their Leap Day to #DayItForward

2016 is a Leap Year, which means we get an extra day. Chevrolet is encouraging everyone to use this extra 24 hours to do something nice for someone special.

On January 26th Chevrolet kicked off #DayItForward, and predicted smiles would start appearing in unexpected places. And they were right.

Here's one great story. The WisconsinDrivesChevy.com Dealer Association in partnership with the Milwaukee Brewers will #DayItFoward on 2/29/16. Providing baseball equipment to about 300 underprivileged children in the Felix Mantilla Little League of Milwaukee, just in time for their upcoming season.

At 4:30 representatives from both Chevrolet and the Brewers will present this generous donation to about 25 Felix Mantilla Little League players at Miller Park. They'll also receive a guided tour, goody bag, and enjoy a pizza party with the Brewers Famous Racing Sausages.

Whether you volunteer at a soup kitchen, walk a neighbor's dog, or buy a total stranger the getaway of their dreams, there is no act too big or too small that a person can do.

So, with plenty of time left in 2016, the question challenging all of us now is, how are you going to #DayItForward?
