A Glove of Their Own is a children's book, that goes far beyond the pages of the book itself. The story is timeless and tells about one of those neighborhood ballgames where the bases are made of sticks and what few gloves are had get shared between players. And then there's the man who comes in with a special gift for the children that reminds them about the importance of giving and having compassion in your heart for those in need.
A Glove of Their Own is also a movement. So many youth out there are underprivileged and don't enjoy city organizations like Little League or Pee Wee League. We encourage these youths to stay off the streets, become educated and enjoy clean fun, but they need help to do so. By showing these children that people care, it inspires them to do good with their life and in turn, pay forward the goodness that was bestowed on them.
There are many organizations right now currently raising money, working with athletes (athlebrities) and companies to help gain funds for sports programs or equipment in areas where it is not available. I urge you to donate or get behind these programs as they are FANTASTIC and as a parent, it is important for me to back things that keep kids doing what kids SHOULD be doing without having to worry about adult issues like the economy and hardships.
