Hello family, friends and co-workers,
God has blessed me throughout my life beyond what I deserve with family, health, fitness and a strong connection to the game of basketball. With a team of 17 other men and women, this summer I will be embarking on a missionary trip to Ozamis City-Mindanao, Philippines to conduct a team basketball camp & crusade, with the goal of teaching over 4000 young men about the game of basketball and the Love of God. Over a 10-day period (July 21-31, 2014), we will hold basketball camps in 12 different locations, where each day kids and young male adults will have an opportunity to compete in drills, skill-building exercises and 5-on-5 games. Each night, the youth and their families will be invited to a heart-felt crusade event where the gospel message will be shared.
I am asking for your help in reaching a goal of $3500. Your donations are tax deductible, and will help cover expenses, along with the purchase of basketballs and jerseys, shoes, food, and building materials for various reconstruction projects currently underway as a result of the recent 2013 Typhoon which had a devastating impact on the region.
There are two ways you can donate to this mission.
1) Through the links provided here on GoFundMe.com.
2) Mail a personal check, cashier check or money order to the address listed below before July 1, 2014.
I am very excited about this opportunity to do God's work with the game of basketball. Please forward this request to others you know who would be willing to donate towards this goal, and I thank you in advance for your assistance.
Before or on July 1, 2014 please send a check, cashier check or money order to the address listed.
