MLB Pitching Legend CC Sabathia announced today that he is joining MindMeet as a Knowledge Giver.

On September 25th, CC will host his first MindMeet where he shares stories about his life and his passion for helping inner city kids achieve their dreams. CC’s MindMeet will raise funds for his charity, The PitCCh In Foundation whose mission to enhance the lives of disadvantaged children.

MindMeet is a new platform launched July 17th that promotes the sharing of knowledge for social good. MindMeet connects knowledge seekers with those who have expertise and standing in different verticals, including sports. Fees for virtual and “in real life” meetings are donated to charities, designated by the knowledge giver.

“I started the PitCCh In Foundation with my wife Amber to let kids know that they can do whatever they want no matter what obstacles they face,” said CC. “That’s why I’m excited to be a part of MindMeet—to interact with fans and raise money to help more youth in need.”

CC’s MindMeet posts today, allowing fans to participate and hear first-hand from him on September 25th. All funds raised through MindMeet will support one of PitCCh In’s signature programs, the Youth Backpack Program. The foundation will provide over 5,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to youth in the Bronx and the Sabathia’s hometown of Vallejo, CA. As part of the MindMeet campaign, there will be exciting teasers and opportunities to enter for a chance to attend the Bronx backpack event to help handout backpacks with Amber and CC.

We’re delighted to work with CC and Amber to raise funds for PitCCh In and to spread CC’s magical story of rising to the top of the MLB. His resolve, grace under pressure and community-mindedness are exemplary. CC is the perfect example of how leaders can help those seeking knowledge and inspiration and originate funds to support worthy nonprofits through MindMeet’s platform.”

“We created MindMeet to change lives,” said Co-CEO Pamela Abalu. We believe that the right advice can make all the difference for an individual. CC is a superhero; he has inspired so many with his talents, his discipline and fortitude. He is exactly the kind of leader who we want on MindMeet, offering wisdom while helping to heal our planet.”
