Help Us Help Our Neighbors (#GivingTuesdayNow)

Help Us Help Our Neighbors. Every Gift Matters on #GivingTuesdayNow

Tomorrow – May 5, 2020 – is #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving and unity in response to the unprecedented needs caused by the COVID-19 crisis. Our ongoing response to this crisis has been the #StayActiveStayStrong program, distributing thousands of play equipment items across our communities so youth and families can stay active at home. Our goal is to support their physical and mental health with movement.

Join us with a gift to help ensure kids and their families are healthy in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, as they adjust to life without the daily routine of school and within the confines of social distancing.

In times like these, we all need physical activity to help keep us strong and mentally healthy. We see this as a tremendous opportunity to support youth and families. Our goal is to help them be active and healthy despite spending so much time at home.


We have purchased thousands of balls, jump ropes, and other gear that kids can use to play at home. We are distributing this play equipment through the “Grab & Go” meal distribution centers through LAUSD and Los Angeles area Catholic schools. We are also producing short videos, featuring Olympians, pro athletes, and other sports figures. These videos are available online and will also be distributed through our partners’ online and digital/broadcast channels.

Every piece of play equipment matters, and so does every donationFrom $10 for two soccer balls to $250 for 100 jump ropes, any donation makes an impact for kids and their families to be healthier, have fun, and relieve stress.

Help us bring play back to the everyday so that our kids can be strong and healthy, both physically and mentally, so they can #StayActiveStayStrong. We are grateful for contributions of any size to this crucial initiative. Join us at to support this project, to help us as we work to reach as many youth and families as we can.

Help us help our neighbors. We stand together during these uncertain times and support each other. We’re bringing activity and peace of mind to youth and helping families. The LA84 Foundation is humbled and grateful when those in our community respond with acts of generosity and kindness of any size.
