  • Share & Inspire - Get other in the 'giving' mood and share what you've done in person or on social media!

Gear Drive Initiative 

Imagine...

If Hakeem Olajuwon had never gotten the chance to put a basketball in his hands...

If David Ortiz was never lucky enough to pick up a baseball bat...

If Lebron James couldn't get a pair of basketball shoes to go play in...

If Pele didn't have a soccer ball to kick around...

The list can go on. 

The MVP International 2018 Gear Drive will be a project devoted to supporting and empowering aspiring young athletes, both domestically and abroad. 

Being based in the DC Metro area we often forget how fortunate we truly are. By taking a step back and looking at what we can do for others in less fortunate circumstances, it is easy to recognize that 1) we can really help, and 2) it can  be easy! 

Let's take advantage of this opportunity to clear out our homes and garages and find a way to help ignite the dreams of kids around the world!
