big papi announces winner

what’s up red sox nation, big papi checkin back in. really wish we were playing in the world series, but it was an honor to be there to accept the roberto clemente award. roberto has always been a role model for me on & off the field, so it’s such an honor to play a small part in continuing his legacy. special shout out to everyone who has supported the david ortiz children’s fund over the years.

also a big thank you to everyone who submitted ideas & voted for different ways that i could give back for this contest with my people at popchips!  they are all great causes, and i wish i could do them all, but i’ve selected an idea that’s very near to my heart. congratulations to the winning submission from jennifer w. of the animal rescue league of boston

big papi can help a little puppy: big papi can play ball with the dogs at the animal rescue league of boston’s shelter in the south end! big papi would help us to find homes for animals in need, give love and care to our shelter dogs, and raise awareness of the importance of adopting shelter animals. big papi can hit a home run for boston’s homeless animals by playing a ball game with our dogs as part of a special adoption day in honor of october’s national adopt-a-dog month. go red sox!–jennifer w.

the animal rescue league of boston has done great work over the years rescuing and finding homes for dogs in the boston area.  i’m honored to do what i can to help raise awareness for this great cause.  my family has a dog of our own, so i know the value that a pet can have on a family.  stay tuned for more details about the event!

i’ll never forget when i first discovered popchips nearly 4 years ago at the american music awards. imagine my surprise when i discovered i could still enjoy a snack i loved without sacrificing my personal focus on healthy eating! even my daughter, who is two and a half, loves them. they are a healthy, flavorful choice for my family and me.
