"A CHANCE AT LIFE"

In a time where many of our youth feel their lives have become complicated.   I have made it my personal obligation to help uncomplicated things by taking them “Back to the Basics”.  This campaign is to stress the simplicity and adherence to fundamental principles for life through basketball.

 Back 2 the Basics (B2TB) is a community organization designed to teach young men and women how to thrive for the future, by making good decisions presently. We want them to believe they can have a chance at life. Our core goal is to build solid foundational leaders by channeling community service programs that are effective and address social, cultural, education, and recreational needs. Back 2 the Basics (B2TB) serves as a resource, advocate, expert and provider of quality coaching, mentoring and teaching.

B2TB community basketball team, “Team Dynasty,” learn life lessons through basketball. In the last 2-3 years the team has consisted of young men and women from our community---our city winning (12) 1st Place Chicago Park Districts Championship and (5) 2nd place championships. The team was designed to build character, discipline, respect, and sportsmanship. We stress simplicity and the adherence of fundamental principles for life through basketball.

B2TB is appealing to everyone that holds a burden to help rebuild and restore our community.

It MUST start with us. NO ONE is coming in to save our community or our children—but we as a community can help build a place for these young men and women. Partner with us as we build this community traveling basketball/mentorship program.  The funds will be used to pay for uniforms, traveling expenses, tournaments, gym rentals, and insurance.  Today, we are asking you to help us offset our community team participation costs.  Any help that your company can provide will be greatly appreciated. 

 We are hopeful that you will be able to support us at this time.  If not we would, none-the-less, like to extend our gratitude for the past support you have shown to this community.

With the winter season upon us and the snow soon to start coming down hard, we are trying to raise $600 to purchase and/or collecting snow shovels, gloves, scarfs, skull caps, salt, or a used snowblower for the youth. Our goal is to be a blessing to the elderly in our communities by shoveling and clearing the sidewalks and drive ways for them. Last year we helped an elderly 80 something year old lady who had been snowed in her house for almost 2 weeks because she had no one to help her. This is UNACCEPTABLE, WE have to be the help for our communities!! PLEASE HELP US HELP THE COMMUNITY!! No donation is too small!! You can donate by CashApp, QuickPay, PayPal, Cash, Checks or by contact us!!

Back 2 The Basics Mentorship is a nonprofit organization with 501c3 status. I, Brent Johnson along with my wife started this organization to give back to the community we live in. We coach, and mentor numerous of at-risk youth, ages 6-21 on the southside of Chicago. Our team experienced a great loss this morning between the hours of 12am-5:30am 7/7/17. Our recently purchased van was stolen. Things were looking up because we finally had a way to get the kids to practice, games, events, and home safely. Our Chrysler town and country van with ALL the equipment we use to condition and prepare the kids for basketball games was quickly stolen. Practice had just ended at 10 p.m. the night before and we were to rise for early morning conditioning. All we do is to help keep them off the street, and prepare them for life. We are asking for your help to continue the work we are doing with the young men and women. Help our youth with "A Chance at Life"
