Well, it’s that time of year again…. That time where I start begging the OG for donations!
As we enter our 7th year of Grappling for Gifts, I am happy to include you bunch of savages…. Just kidding…. This place is a HUGE part of my charity. Without this place I wouldn’t be able to get half the gifts to the kids that I do.
If you aren’t familiar… I founded and run Grappling For Gifts Inc. (out of my house). It is a 501c3 charity I started in 2016. Long story short the Children’s Hospital of Illinois did me a pretty big favor when my little girl, Catalina, was born. Without this incredible hospital my life, and hers, would have turned out a lot different. So, what I do is I collect donations so I can buy the kids being treated in the CHOI toys, game, clothes, supplies, etc so they have a little something extra for the Holidays. I’ve made this my sole mission. What started as me offering martial arts lessons has blossomed into something bigger.
To date GFG has raised over $40k that went directly to the needs of kids being treated in the Children’s Hospital of Illinois. This site has been instrumental to the success we’ve had. Despite our differences on here we have all pulled together for the greater good.
All details on my charity can be found here www.grapplingforgifts.com
Donations (GFM, PayPal, Venmo) are made easy here: https://www.grapplingforgifts.com/donate
We also have a Facebook page: www.facebook.com/GrapplingForGifts
And since a lot of you know me or know about this…. If you don’t want a percentage taken out of your donation you can PayPal F&F to firstname.lastname@example.org or Venmo at @Ryan-Prouty-7. Extra 2% never hurt in fundraising. All goes to the same spot.
Anyway…. If you are in a position to give and would like to help out a bunch of great kids that could use a nice distraction during their treatment, please consider Grappling For Gifts.
