The St. Louis Rally Squirrel Big On Philanthropy
The squirrel that scampered across the Busch Stadium field during the National League baseball playoffs in October recently announced that he would like to parlay his fame into charity for kids.
After a spate of appearances during the playoffs that put the St. Louis Cardinals on the road to winning the World Series, the furry little creature took to Twitter, attracting thousands of followers in just a few days. As of December 28, an account purporting to be him had just over 27,000 followers. He also launched a t-shirt line.
The squirrel’s agent told St. Louis reporters that the Rally Squirrel wanted to use “my fame to stand for something positive and my goal is to help create Cardinal victories while helping Cardinal Glennon kids.”
He even agreed to have his image put on cards sold by the hospital to support the kids. The squirrel also threw a press conference announcing his intentions to sell other items for charity, including playing cards and hats replete with squirrel tails. All proceeds go to Cardinal Glennon.
