I want to do what I can to help out my friend, Arsel Giowou, who is trying to develop the game of baseball in his home country of Cameroon, where it's currently almost inexistent. I met Arsel in January on Linkedin and we've been in regular contact since, talking about baseball and life from two very different perspectives and sides of the world. I grew an admiration for the mission Arsel is on to develop baseball in his country, and for his positivity and kindness through our conversations.
Soccer is the big sport in Cameroon, but Arsel has an immense passion for baseball, playing the game growing up and now training young kids in his neighborhood. To try to spread the game into his community, he started the Harmony Baseball Academy to give kids in his area an opportunity to learn baseball. This photo from Arsel is most of the equipment he currently has to train now 30+ players, so i want to hook them up with some much needed gear.
The money raised here will all go towards purchasing and shipping brand new equipment to them in Cameroon (I'll keep everyone updated showing the equipment I purchase online). I also want to give you guys the opportunity to donate old equipment you don't use anymore if you'd prefer to help out in that way. If you want to donate your used equipment/uniforms, message me on here or on Twitter. Thank you all so much, and also make sure you also donate to organizations that fight against racial injustice and stand up for what you believe is right. Be safe everyone!
