2019 marks our 15th Anniversary of partnering with professional athletes, teams, leagues/associations, corporations, school districts and individual schools, and so many donors and volunteers to benefit underprivileged and disadvantaged youth across America.  

I would like to ask you to help us raise $15K+ to support our programming for youth for this year.

What have we accomplished over the years?
  • In 2004, we started the org with the support of NFL players in an effort to benefit foster care youth in NYC through Back to School Book Bag Giveaways and Holiday Gift Distributions.  
  • We went on to host unique football camps, with an educational focus, for NFL Players such as Ryan Sims (Spartanburg, SC), Ovie Mughelli (Charleston, SC), James Lee (Belle Glade, FL), Corvey Irvin (Augusta, GA), Don Carey III (Detroit, MI), Kawann Short (East Chicago, IN), George Selvie (Pensacola, FL) and our STEM Squad (Kevin Pamphile, Keith Tandy, Andrew DePaola, Alterraun Verner and Clinton McDonald) (Tampa, FL – home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers).
  • We have delivered over 100,000 books to youth in partnership with players such as Alterraun Verner, Michael Thomas, Brandon Copeland, Kawann Short, Ryan Lindley, Jason McCourty, James Ihedigbo, Darrell Stuckey, Nat Berhe and many more.
  • We have donated over 1000 bibles through social media outlets with players such as Alterraun Verner, Kevin Pamphile, Don Carey III, etc.
  • We have created STEM + Literacy and/or Mentoring Programs or Initiatives in cities such as Brooklyn, NY; Detroit, MI; East Chicago, IN; and Tampa, FL, supported by various athletes and/or teams and corporations such as the Ford Motor Company, Tata Technologies, etc.
  • Players such as Kevin Pamphile, Jermon Bushrod, Travaris Cadet, Visanthe Shiancoe have helped us sponsor back to school and educational events for hundreds of youth in Haiti over the years.
  • We have sponsored 1000s of youth to attend sporting events and other theatrical or cultural events, and concerts thanks to our partnership with Tickets for Kids, etc.
  • We rang the closing bell at NASDAQ in 2007 and again in 2016.  We hope to ring it again in 2019.

Please consider making a donation from any of the following increments of “15” to help us celebrate our 15th Anniversary by hosting many events throughout this year:  $15, $115, $515, $1015, $1515.  You decide!  No donation is too small and I hope you will answer our call to help us raise $15K by June 2019.
