When you look at our communities and the world at large, it is very apparent that our youth have been neglected and need love, direction, and empowerment. How do we bring them hope and confidence to be strong and face adversity with a determination to be successful. Simply stated, we need to go to the communities where they are struggling and offer them teachable programs of empowerment and hope.
That is exactly what our non-profit Next Step Athletics is planning to do with a major outreach program in India for 3 weeks in January 2019. The funds raised through this campaign will add significant value to the project and uniquely bless youth in India. Our goal is to utilize high-quality basketball coaching as a springboard for life skills and leadership development among a number of youth and adults in some of the under-resourced cities of Mumbai, Ahmebeda, and Indore.
Would you consider partnering with us so that we can maximize this once in a lifetime opportunity to impact and make a difference? Please consider giving a financial tax-deductible gift large or small to make sure that Next Step Athletics continues to be a beacon of hope our youth. In order to make this happen, we have set a goal for Giving Tuesdays of $20,000.00. We believe that with generous partners like you we can be instrumental in being a difference maker of influence that will lead our efforts to continue to impact our youth both in America and around the world.
