Your good deed for the day

Click here.

Why? Because a motivated 11 year old softball player in Pittsburgh is fighting to get money so that her team can have a field as good as the one the boys get to use.

From today's Post-Gazette, we learn that Gabby Means has already won her neighborhood ballfield - sandlot seems more apt given its condition - $5,000 from Briggs & Stratton, turf equipment provider. She wrote an essay for an annual contest, and got to be a finalist. Now, if she gets enough clicks here (it's down at the bottom, on the right), the field will get another $20,000, including a lawn tractor and other capital investment.

Help her learn that, while life is most certainly not fair, it doesn't always suck, either.
