Gifting 10,000 Children Christmas Care Packages

For years I ran basketball events in the DC area, giving kids from all walks of life the opportunity to compete at the highest level and earn college scholarships and beyond. When the pandemic hit, I made the tough decision to relocate to Los Angeles to further my other endeavors, including film, tech and management services. In that time, I’ve built a lot of relationships and have had a lot of amazing experiences. But I quickly realized that things aren’t what they seem from the outside looking in like DC. The violence is out of control, homelessness is at an all-time high and the crime has caused law enforcement to encourage people to not even visit. People are moving away because they don’t feel safe and celebrities are not exempt. The craziest part is that it’s even worse during holiday season! So I, with the help of some great friends and business associates have decided to do my part to help. December 3-4 I have put together my first basketball event in LA and first since the pandemic. We are bringing some of the top high schools from the DC and Baltimore areas to match up against some of SoCal's best to raise money and give 10k kids as well as the homeless a Christmas they’ll never forget. But we need help! Donations, donations and more donations and it doesn’t just have to be monetary. We need sneakers, toiletries, skin care products, coats, clothing, toys, games and most importantly the biggest platform possible. Share this with friends and associates, repost to your social media, word of mouth anything and everything helps. Although we can’t fix everything with one event, it can be the first few steps in a long journey that can provide hope and spark change. Since I started and named my company More Than Basketball, this has always been my mission. For more information use the link in my bio or log onto www.morethanbasketballthebrand.com
