matt kemp pledges to donate one thousand dollars to oklahoma tornado victims for every home run he hits

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp makes a TON of money for hitting balls out of the park, and now he's found a creative a way to help others with his home runs!

With hundreds and thousands of people still recovering from the devastating tornado that recently struck Oklahoma, the All-Star baseball player decided he wanted to find a way to pitch in himself!

The Oklahoma native took to Twitter to share his idea, writing:

Talk about a class act!

The Major League Baseball All-Star break kicks off July 15th, so he has about 51 games to hit as many long balls as possible!

The Dodger slugger has gotten off to a pretty slow start so far and only has two home runs under his belt this season, but based on what we've seen from him over the last couple of years he's MORE than capable of hitting a few more balls over the fence!

It's so great to see athletes like Matt Kemp and Kevin Durant getting involved any way they can!

Now go hit some home runs, Matt!!!
