Sports America Kids Month: History, Purpose and Fun Ways to Support the Cause!
Did you know that June is Sports America Kids Month? It's a time to celebrate and promote youth sports in the United States. The purpose of Sports America Kids Month is to encourage kids to participate in sports, stay healthy and have fun. There are many events and great need for fundraising throughout the month, so be sure to get involved! In this blog post, we will discuss the history of Sports America Kids Month, as well as a fun, easy way that you can support the cause!
Sports America Kids Month was founded in 2006 by the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS). NAYS is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of children through sports. Every year, they partner with different organizations to host events and fundraising opportunities during Sports America Kids Month. This year, they are partnering with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and Major League Baseball (MLB).
There are many ways that you can support Sports America Kids Month! Here are a few ideas:
-Buy a coffee subscription from The Great Coffee Project, and choose NAYS as your charity of choice at check-out. NAYS will receive 15% of your purchase, which will support youth sports programs around the country.
-Organize your own fundraiser to support a children's sports program that is near and dear to you. Do you have money you need to raise for new uniforms or equipment? How about money you need to raise for tournament entry fees for the team? Or what about fund you need to raise to cover travel fees or team snacks? If your sports organization is a registered 503(c), The Great Coffee Project can set you up with an affiliate link. All you need to do is share the link and spread the word on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).
Use the hashtag #SportsAmericaKidsMonth and #goodpurposecoffee. 15% of all proceeds sold through your affiliate link will be donated to your non-profit to help kid athletes that matter to you most!
