Twitter is a very powerful tool that, if used correctly, could provide a lot of benefits for celebrities and professional athletes.

Oftentimes, celebs and other A-listers have hundreds of thousands if not millions of followers on Twitter; many like to advertise products for sponsorships, but then there are those select few who like to help out the less fortunate through the social media giant.

Philadelphia Flyers’ defenseman Matt Carle took to Twitter to help out the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

If Carle can acquire 10,000 followers by the end of the regular season (April 9th for the Flyers), he will donate $10,000 to CHOP.

A lot of you have Twitter and it only takes a few seconds to potentially help out thousands. So even if you’re a Flyers fan or not, head over to Carle’s page and help out!

As of right now, Carle has around 4,000 followers!
