Aiming to bring sport, hope and opportunity to children living in poverty both locally and internationally, Northbrook-based youth charity Gear for Goals (G4G) recently launched their 'One Gives One' campaign.

During One Gives One, G4G will donate a new soccer ball or baseball to a child living in poverty for every soccer ball or dozen baseballs purchased at G4G's website.

Community members can purchase a logo'd G4G sports ball and help a child in need at Multiply your gift giving during the holidays! Together, we can make a difference.

Working for the past year to develop a significant footprint of impact around the world, Gear for Goals has currently delivered sport and hope to over 25,000 children in 15 countries. The request outstrips the resource nearly 10 to 1, according to Gear for Goals' Executive Director Dr. Warren Bruhl and more donated equipment is needed to fulfill all the requests. This is especially true for soccer equipment and soccer balls. Soccer is the international sport of the world and Gear for Goals aims to help the over one billion children around the world who have no sport to have a chance.

Soccer balls purchased through G4G's One Gives One campaign are high quality number 5 Baden Soccer Balls and the baseballs are high quality Baden balls. Help Gear for Goals help them! Excellent gifts for the holidays, One Gives One can also be utilized as a fundraiser for sports groups or teams. For more information on how your group can get involved, contact.
