A Special Message from Mixed Roots Foundation, Tiffany Haddish and She Ready Foundation

March 18, 2020

Dear Mixed Roots and She Ready Family, Friends and Partners,

With the recent ongoing and continuously evolving developments of the global pandemic of the Coronavirus  (COVID-19) including the official postponement of the MLB season as of Monday, March 16, 2020, we will be postponing our signature MLB Adoptee Night events until further notice.

Our MLB Adoptee Night events are very special nights that we have been hosting for the past 9 years that raises awareness and funds for the adoption and foster care community and have resulted into sponsoring over 11,000 adopted, foster youth and their families to attend their first MLB baseball game nationwide.

With that, our MLB Adoptee Nights were originally scheduled during this May for National Foster Care Month including the 2nd Annual New York Yankees on May 5th, 8th Annual Minnesota Twins on May 18th, 6th Annual San Francisco Giants on May 19th and our 8th Annual LA Dodgers Adoptee Night that was going to take place on Friday, May 22nd. We were going to feature Tiffany Haddish throwing out the First Pitch in Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium for our LA Dodgers Adoptee Night.

We are in close communication and working with all of our MLB teams and community partners to identify a new date  for each of our events…As soon as a new date becomes available, we will be sure to inform and update all of you.

In the meantime, As we try to navigate and get through these unchartered territories together, we would like to remind all  of you of our very special and vulnerable population we serve – the adoption and foster care community in particular our  foster youth who may not have homes or families to go to or have enough food to eat.

We encourage all of you to consider volunteering, donating, and /or finding ways to further support our greater adoption  and foster care community by visiting the following links below as we continue to follow the CDC / WHO and our  respective state and local / city guidelines on proper health care and social distancing that is critical to slow the spread of  this devastating virus.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost loved ones and are battling for their lives…Please Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, and Stay Home – We need all of you to be in the Stands when the MLB and all of us return to take the field!

Thank you for your time, patience, continued support and partnership…We cannot wait and look forward to saying “Let’s Play Ball” very soon!!
