PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Last season, Arizona Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed launched a PledgeIt campaign based on team wins and exceeded its goal of $10,000 in just three weeks. Now, the Ahmed family has got their sights even higher.

Ahmed and his wife Amanda hope to reach a goal of $40,000 for a Phoenix-based project called "Striking Out Poverty" by the international non-profit Food for the Hungry.

Food for the Hungry provides relief and community-building services to nine communities in the Dominican Republic.

To achieve their goal, Ahmed and his wife Amanda launched another PledgeIt campaign, where members of the community can pledge money toward each hit that Ahmed makes this season.

The Ahmed family has also personally pledged $100 for each hit he makes.

Ahmed's hope is that the money raised can provide citizens of the Dominican Republic access to safe, running drinking water in one community and a water purification center in another.
