The Gerbsis a collection of 4,444 digital gerbils that exist on the blockchain with the sole purpose of making the world a better place. Gerbs always stick together, radiate positivity, and are constantly looking for ways to help others. We founded the Gerb project as a tribute to our late father, Richie Lewis. Richie was a college baseball hall-of-Famer and MLB pitcher who defied all odds within the athletic community and made a career as a pitcher at just 5’6” tall.
Unfortunately, his baseball career ended due to injuries he sustained while playing in the MLB – some of which included concussions. In the wake of his injuries, when he was no longer able to play baseball, our dad developed severe depression and anxiety that progressed in the years following his retirement. His mental health battle raged for over two decades and eventually ended inDecember 2021. To honor his life, we’ve dedicated this project to those battling depression, anxiety, or suicidal thoughts.
The Gerbs community is committed to doing everything in its power to fund, facilitate, or providere sources in order to impact as many lives as possible.
