We are proud to partner with Bob Salomon who is the driving force behind a "play it forward" initiative that mirrors our own. He created a grass roots campaign to raise awareness about A Glove of Their Own.
Salomon shares, "Beyond the words of this book is a deeper meaning of the mission behind our book, A Glove of Their Own. The book teaches the next generation the importance of giving back by becoming aware of those around us who would otherwise go without."
Purchasing this book through our Roberto's Kids code ensures that $3.00 of your purchase price is donated to our organization. All proceeds received from Franklin Mason Press are directly used for storage and shipping.
Baseball stars across the country are stepping up to support a new children’s book, A Glove of Their Own. The book aims to teach children the value of sharing what you have with those in need.
Roberto's Kids is proud to be one of the charitable organizations that will benefit from sales of the book.
Bob Salomon, the head of the movement promoting this book said “As a little league coach and proud father of two, I am fortunate enough to be passionate about the “pay it forward” or “give it back” mindset that has slowly been catching on throughout corporate America. A Glove of Their Own is a children’s picture book that personifies this mentality. It utilizes baseball, and an underprivileged group of children's childhood experience. Their love of the game is not defined by the equipment they don’t have but rather the passion and dreams that they do have.”
The book was inspired by a birthday party held for one of the writer's, Debbie Moldovan, children. In place of gifts, guests were asked to donate baseball equipment for children who normally do without. A Glove of Their Own has caught the attention of big-hearted baseball players including Robb Quinlan, Jack Hannahan, Sean Casey, Craig Biggio,and Jason Grilli.
