"a ball can change the world."
Raised by my grandparents in the Philadelphia area, I spent endless hours at the neighborhood playground where I found my calling: a red rubber ball - aka sport and play Chasing my “red rubber ball” has led me to become an author, a speaker and an agent for social change. I've dedicated my life to advancing sports and play as a vehicle for social change. I partner with non-governmental organizations and businesses around the world that share a similar vision and goals.
I just came from speaking at an event for The Alliance for a Healthier Generation (Jamie Oliver, Rachel Ray, Paul Pierce support them) where I serve as one of their Champions & this OpenIDEO challenge hit home regarding social business making a difference – The Alliance was founded by the Clinton Foundation + the American Heart Association w/major support from Robert Wood Johnson Foundation(they gave a $23 Million grant to their US Healthy Schools Program on Monday/$51 Million to date - www.healthiergeneration.org. The Alliance is a great example of an organization benefiting from social business!
