From playgrounds in Iraq to soccer balls in Africa, every kid should have the right and freedom to simply play. In many parts of the world, soccer "balls" are made of old rags
just knotted together. Baseball games are played with no gloves nor real baseballs. And playgrounds have never even existed. But war-torn IDPs and other refugees often are in great
need of just food and water.
In conjunction with foreign nationals, aid workers and various non-profit organizations, Sport Kids provides sports equipment, humanitarian aid and educational assistance to some of the world's most overlooked, impoverished orphans, kids, and families.
Sport Kids is privately funded and also generates some revenue from the sale of paintings I create.
Sport Kids helps support and encourage kids around the world, using sports and recreation to help heal all sorts of trauma and abuse, to build friendships and to foster community. It's a simple, high-impact mission, with massive potential.
Thank you for your interest. May the love of the Lord God bless you and encourage your support and service to those in greatest need around the globe. -Rick Whittlesey, Founder
