Giving Tuesday

Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a global movement that celebrates generosity and giving back. Will you join us? Making a tax-deductible donation to USABA this Giving Tuesday empowers Americans who are blind and visually impaired through sport and physical activity. You can have a personal impact on communities across the nation by investing in USABA Ski Camps this Giving Tuesday.

Last year, four-year-old Zoe attended our camp with her brother, Logan. Both were diagnosed with a rare genetic eye disease very early in life. Their parents also attended the camp and were inspired and grateful for the opportunity their children received in learning how to ski with USABA.

When U.S. Navy Veteran, Calvin Poole attended his first USABA ski camp, learning to ski was exhilarating but it was the community of people he got to know that left him wanting more. Calvin is now involved in many of our sports camps and recently established the Tennessee Association of Blind Athletes, a USABA Sports Club, after experiencing the impact sports had on his life. Like us, Calvin finds joy in bringing others together through sport.

 

Sports and recreation programs build something special inside each of us - teamwork, dedication, self-confidence, independence. USABA athletes exhibit these characteristics and more when they are empowered to triumph over adversity. By supporting USABA today, on Giving Tuesday, you are empowering and inspiring youth, adults and blinded military veterans through participation in a 2018 USABA Ski Camp.

A gift of $500.00 provides a scholarship for one athlete to attend a USABA Ski Camp in Breckenridge, Colorado, or Killington, Vermont. Please consider providing a full or partial scholarship for youth athletes like Zoe and Logan and Military Veteran athletes like Calvin to attend a USABA Ski Camp in 2018. Your investment in someone’s well-being has the potential to change lives.

Will you join us in empowering and inspiring blind athletes across the U.S. on this Giving Tuesday by making a tax-deductible donation?

P.S. Are you on Facebook? If you donate via the “donate” button on our Facebook page, your gift will be matched! So, if you donate on Facebook, your $500 donation would actually provide TWO full scholarships to a 2018 USABA Ski Camp.
