Why is this so important… Why do this?
Missouri City, TX (PRWEB) November 21, 2010 -
Rashad McCants, an athlete who grew up in poverty, made it to the NBA, earned millions of dollars, and never forgot where he came from. Now McCants’ Generation One teams up with Urban Born Foundation and with this partnership, he donates his money and time to save after school youth program for underprivileged at-risk kids. The special youth program provides, transportation, school supplies, food, and field trips that are not funded by the government. In these difficult economic times are forcing many youth programs to shut down due to lack of funding. When asked, “Why is this so important… Why do this?” Rashad McCants answered, “I love the kids. We all can help make a difference. If you can’t donate money, donate your time. It’s our responsibility to help the next generation they are our future.
McCants and Generation One’s mission is to empower change into the lives of our youth. Spread the love and push kids that have been mislead and misunderstood. Their purpose is to provide mentors and role models in communities, schools and neighborhoods to families missing that fatherly or motherly love whether they are in foster care, living with relatives or in a single-parent home. Their organization emphasizes on expanding the teens’ vision so that they can realize their potential to create a brighter future for themselves.
