Tim Anderson is putting his legs — and wallet — to good use on and off the field.

The 25-year-old White Sox shortstop is donating $500 each time he steals a base this season, with proceeds going to his anti-violence foundation, he announced in an Instagram post. Anderson leads Major League Baseball with 12 stolen bases.

“With EVERY stolen base I swipe this season, I personally pledge $500 to help steal away from senseless violence within our communities,” he wrote in the post Wednesday.

In conjunction with his donations, he started a pledgeit.org drive seeking $25,000. As of Thursday afternoon, it had raised $1,665.
