The Idea

Let’s Have A: Ball is a vision for a not-for-profit organization that provides sports equipment to underprivileged children through a hybrid “one-for-one” business model funded by the sale of professionally signed, used sports equipment.

The Specifics

The funds from this challenge will help turn Let’s Have A: Ball into a reality. Specifically, the funds will help cover start up costs that aim to bring the not-for-profit organization to life.

Our methodology represents bold innovation by combining the 2 billion dollar sports memorabilia industry with a unique social twist; the money from the sale of the athlete donated equipment will be used to purchase sports equipment for underprivileged children.

Give a child a ball, give a child a dream.

What a great way to utilize kids' dreams and passions! As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: "Passion rebuilds the world for the youth. It makes all things alive and significant". Giving kids a ball will help things come alive for them; wonderful idea!

Very intriguing idea Mr. Miller. Do you plan to distrubte this athletic equipment only in certain impoverished foreign countires or would you also attempt to do this for underprivliged areas of the United States?

Great question, vhunt13! The idea is to begin distributing athletic equipment solely in the United States, with plans to expand internationally as time progresses.

Lets Have a Ball sounds as though it would provide athletes a unique way to not only make an impact on underprivileged children but allow their fans to have a "piece" of the action!

What a compassionate idea ! Working in a school system I see how much energy children have and using balls for fun and exercise is critical. Great idea !!

This is a wonderful idea! I know many people who have been influenced greatly by having sports in their life. All children should be able to have proper equipment to play with! I am excited to see where this goes!
