Kevin Baxter: Bringing the Gift of Sports to Underprivileged Children

Sportsgift California business lawyer Kevin Baxter grew up in an affluent family, which meant whatever the sport, he had the latest gear. As an adult, Baxter got involved with humanitarian relief and took trips to Mexico to deliver food, clothing and toiletries to orphanages. It was then he noticed none of the kids had any sports equipment.

Baxter believes that sports help youth build morale and character. It also helps distract poor kids from their difficult conditions. Finding no nonprofit providing sports equipment to needy communities, Baxter moved to fill the void and Sports Gift was born.

Sports Gift collects balls, cleats, uniforms and other equipment from high schools, churches, sports camps and leagues, and distributes them to poor communities overseas. The smiles on the kids' faces receiving these gifts makes it clear that Baxter has struck a chord.
