Matt Cain to Donate $50,000 to Make-A-Wish

Like many of us, Giants pitcher Matt Cain was inspired by the Make-A-Wish Foundation's work with Batkid. To ensure that more children facing difficult health situations can have the same opportunities, Cain and his wife will donate $50,000 to the organization.

San Francisco Giants pitcher Matt Cain has pledged a $50,000 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation after seeing the success of the organization's "Batkid" visit to San Francisco last month.

... The ballplayer and his wife, Chelsea, will give $50,000 to the organization once its Bay Area executive director Patricia Wilson raises the same amount.

Wilson has raised more than $20,000 for her part in the annual "Brave the Bay" charity event for the organization held last Saturday at Aquatic Park in San Francisco.

Kudos to Cain for helping a great cause that does wonderful things for deserving kids.
