Welcome to the Giving Athlete. The goal of this site is to promote the “good” in athletes. What you will find here are stories of athletes who devote their time, energy, money, resources, etc. in order to give back to the community. In a society nowadays where negative news appears to be great news, in other words, it is much more intriguing to report a star athlete doing something silly or breaking the law, a majority of the hard work of some of these athletes [who do not perform these acts of kindness just for the display of public image] goes unnoticed. As a result, this overshadows the good work athletes are doing in the community. The objective of this website is to focus on the athlete and his/her charity, and everything positive in the athlete thereof.
The ultimate goal of this site is to focus on the “good” of the athlete. Sometimes as fans we are oblivious to the fact these amazing athletes who are gifted and blessed with such immense athletic talent, are just as human we are, thus here we attempt to humanize and concentrate on the positive impact athletes are having in society today.
