Capital One Bank Donating $1,000 For Every Giants Home Run

To celebrate the Giants advancing to the World Series as well as the launch of Capital One Bank's "Swim In Your Saving Pool," today in San Francisco, Capital One Bank will be donating $1,000 for every homerun by the Giants during Games 1 and 2 to benefit financial literacy non-profit Junior Achievement of Northern California. This is on top of the money already being raised by the promotion, to a max of $10,000. Wouldn't that be great for the Giants to go out there and max it out? In the first inning of game one? Yeah ... yeah that would be something special.

Some people see pieces like this and move on, but there's no reason to not publish them. If the money is going to a good cause, it's always worth noting. If the cause hits home for you and you're a local resident, visit the "Savings Pool," through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Every person who goes into the pool will be rewarded with a $5 gift card to boost personal savings, in addition to a matching $5 donation to the Junior Achievement of Northern California. So get down there, contribute, and do all manner of hope and prayer that the Giants can earn this worthy cause a few grand.

That's right. That's my reason for wanting home runs .. honest.
