Last year an awesome team came together to make a successful event with the Schaumburg Boomers come together and we hosted a huge mega gear drive. During the 7th inning stretch, we had this really cool flash mob. Here are the team leaders practicing for the event.

Watch this hilarious video showing all the work and I mean work we have to do so we can serve the needs of the Maasai in Kenya. This is truly a labor of love as all doctors spend their own money and donate their time to make this all happen.

Gear donated by St. Norberts to help Gear for Goals

Julie Stocking and her family have been huge supporters of Gear for Goals. Julie contacted the St. Norberts Church in Northbrook, Illinois to secure any sports gear that did not sell in the annual garage sale they host. Over 1000 pieces of gear was donated and now we can help between 3000-5000 more children in various regions we serve with this gear.

SPORT = HOPE = OPPORTUNITY – Gear for Goals changing the world one ball, one mitt, one jump rope at a time.

Since inception Gear for Goals has provided sports gear to over 30,000 children in 16 countries.  Children in Kenya, Philippines, Jamaica, India, Cuba, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Dominican Republic, Bolivia, Belize, Costa Rica, Guatemala, United States, and Haiti have received sports gear and something far more important, HOPE.  

One of the most powerful truths we see in the eyes of many children living in an under resourced part of the world is a sense of despair behind the the veneered smile that is attempting to hide a discouraged sense of impossibility.  For nearly half of the children living on the planet their sad reality is that they will never have the opportunity to have adequate food, water, education, health care, and some of the basic human needs met many of us can readily take for granted.  However, our experience is where few viable economic opportunities may exist, athleticism is a commodity and could be part of the beginning of a movement out of poverty and into economic transformation.  

In the Dominican Republic where children thrive and live for baseball, young athletes practice dutifully hoping one day they may each follow in the footsteps of their heroes of baseball.  And remarkably the Dominican has been successful in creating a baseball talent pool unrivaled in the world.  One in seven Major League Baseball players is born the Dominican and even greater percentages are represented in Minor League Baseball.  Young boys practice hour upon hour hoping, dreaming, and believing they can be next.  But in order for this to happen, THEY MUST HAVE THE GEAR.  TRAGICALLY many never get the equipment they need and therefore even with the amazing numbers we have just quoted having success, there could probably be far more.  Gear for Goals has made it a mission to see that all children in the world have access to sport.

Look at ME!

From our recent trip to Kenya, this little boy was very happy after he received some new toothpaste and toothbrush from Dreamweaver International. Likely the first ones he has ever used. Many of the children were shown how to use this important dental hygiene tool.
