Reds win $10,000 donation in #whiff campaign

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Reds blew away the competition in Head & Shoulders #Whiff campaign, winning a $10,000 donation for the Reds Community Fund for the month of June.

The campaign encourages fans to tweet #Whiff and @[MLB Club name] for every strikeout.

Beginning Opening Day, Proctor & Gamble's Head & Shoulders pledged to donate $1 for each MLB strikeout to the Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) program, which provides inner-city youth an opportunity to learn and enjoy the game of baseball.

Each month, the MLB Club with the most tweets earns an additional $10,000 for their local RBI league.

Head & Shoulders Men tweeted on Tuesday: "@HSforMen: Numbers are in. @Reds blew away the competition with over 59K tweets in June. Here's to some major #whiff dedication".
