Gear for Goals (G4G) is transforming the leaders of tomorrow with sports and the arts. Sports are such a vital part of our economic and recreational experience globally and often children have no access to the sports equipment or coaching necessary to help them learn leadership skills and acquire the possibility to use their God given talents to WOW the world with their talent. Gear for Goals believes all children deserve access to sports, the arts, and the coaching and mentoring to use their talents. Sadly over 1 billion children live on less than $1/day and many have NO HOPE and NO OPPORTUNITY. Gear for Goals is CHANGING THE WORLD through the algorithm SPORT=HOPE=OPPORTUNITY.

Join the Park Ridge Youth Commission and G4G for the big gear drive and CHANGE THE WORLD. Gently used and new sports items and musical instruments are needed.

All donations are eligible for a TAX DEDUCTION based on IRS guidelines.
 
Gear for Goals is a compassion project of nonprofit (501c3) Dreamweaver International.Gear for Goals is a 501c3 charity providing global hope for children in East Africa, Caribbean, North America and Asia.
