by | Apr. 03, 2020

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Major League Baseball player Bryce Harper is no stranger to sharing his testimony on social media. In the past, he’s shared photos with Elder Uchtdorf, a post featuring his scriptures, and he’s even given President Nelson one of his jerseys.

Thursday, the Philadelphia Phillies star announced a $500,000 donation for COVID-19 relief in a post on Twitter and shared his testimony of faith in the Savior.

“Through the power of prayer and helping each other with pure intent and love, we will get through this TOGETHER! Faith in our Lord and Savior will help heal the world,” the post reads.

The donation relief efforts will help benefit people in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Las Vegas, Nevada.

NOW is the time to come together and adhere to guidelines of medical professionals! We are wishing the best to all with our prayers during this time,” the post reads.

The post is signed by The Harpers. In 2017, Bryce Harper’s wedding to Kayla Varner was featured on the wedding website The Knot. The two now have a son, Krew.
