I wanted to say thank you for everyone supporting our cause so far! We are almost halfway to our goal of being able to order the Lady Mangyan's some new equipment!
My name is Ryann Gossett. I am 8 years old and have been playing softball for 4 years and I love the game. I am very fortunate to be living here in NC and getting to play with my friends and teammates every week and being able to have the right equipment to make me a better player. Unfortunately that is not the case for all girls.
There are many kids around the world that would love the opportunities that we have here in the United States. But many places in the world don’t have it good like we do. I found out that there is a team called ORIENTAL MINDORO LADY MANGYAN’S who are from the Philippines. Oriental Mindoro is a small village that is very poor. Many of the girls don’t get opportunities to get a good education because they are from the small villages and don’t have much. They do have a softball team from 12-16 years old. If they are good, they can get scholarships to play at the private schools in the bigger cities. For some, it’s the only way to get an education. The problem is, they don’t have much equipment. I would like to have a fundraiser so we can help these girls get some softball equipment so they can have the opportunities to play and learn like we do. That's why I am asking for your help. Unfortunately shipping to the Philippines is very expensive but if we order equipment directly from amazon we can get them the items below for right at $2,200 with shipping.
10 Rawlings Helmets
10 Rawlings gloves
3 Easton Bats
2 buckets of 24 count regulation size balls
These things may not seem like much to us since we are blessed to have access to these items at our fingertips, but they don't. Let's Step Up to the Plate and help the girls in the village out.

PLEASE BE AWARE OF A SCAM GO FUND ME PAGE
we have verified our information with Coach Julius.
It has been brought to my attention there has been a scam fundraiser started on Go Fund Me by a man, Mark Sito, who has 3 open fundraisers in the last few days with over 2k in scammed donations. There is no other online donations for our fundraiser except this one that is ran by myself. DO NOT DONATE ON GO FUND ME to MARK SITO.
We will also have a donation box set up this Saturday at the 2021 TOP GUN-USA SPORTS EVENT" QUEEN OF THE RINGS-Purple passion
Concord/Charlotte, NC to add to these donations. The tournament is at Rocky River Athletic Complex at Rocky River Elementary in Concord.
Can’t donate? Please share. Even a quick share on Facebook can help.
The average share raises $97.
