We need your help!

Hi, my name is Max Bobholz.  I am collecting used or new baseball equipment for children in Africa.  Children in remote villages often have to play their games with homemade equipment or very few items shared by many.  After watching Uganda's team in the Little League World Series nearly 2 years ago, I realized that we could provide these children with wonderful equipment by simply donating used equipment that sits unused in our homes or garages.  

We need:  

  • Gloves
  • Bats
  • Balls
  • Bases
  • Hats/helmets
  • etc...(no shoes)

We will also need a little bit of help with the shipping, and we would appreciate a little help financially! If you'd like to donate money, please make checks out to "Rotary of GPC"  

In August, we will be traveling to a remote village in Africa where we will be digging cisterns and planting trees for those in the village.  We also plan to make our first delivery of baseball equipment on this journey to villages along the way.  

We will box equipment including gloves, a few bats, balls, and 4 bases.  We will also need to raise money to ship the boxes and are hopeful that we can bring about 10 boxes of team equipment on our travels in August.  

In memory of our coach...

In January 2012, we lost a very special man who helped coach me and my friends since we were young.  His loss was sudden and we all miss him so much.  The summer before he died, our team won state and traveled to Kentucky where we finished runner up to the previous year national champions.  It was a special summer for us and we made it through the challenges with our motto of "Heart, Attitude, Team".  In honor of coach Todd Williquette, all equipment donated to Africa will have his own softball number #20 written on each item.

Please consider helping me help others - Max Bobholz
