Youth sports are making a comeback!

This May, the Abaco Strong team received its first grant from the Hurricane Dorian Relief and Recovery Fund. The grant supported community-led efforts to repair and rebuild safe homes in Treasure Cay. Executive Director Martha Fleury’s enthusiasm for her community’s recovery and GlobalGiving’s partnership inspired her to post an additional project, “Bring Youth Baseball back to Abaco,” on behalf of the grassroots Abaco Youth Baseball league.

The Youth Baseball project was well underway in 2019, but the devastating impacts of Hurricane Dorian interrupted their progress.  Despite the obstacles, the spirits of the coaches and parents were not dampened—neither was the spirit of generosity of fans. Within six weeks, donors from around the world surpassed the $25,000 fundraising goal and donated baseball equipment through an Amazon Wish List! 

“Having spent years as a visitor and part-time resident, I realize the devastating effects Dorian has had, and how sports can help bring a community together.”— Anonymous Donor

In the wake of disasters, communities turn to sports as an outlet of hope and togetherness. GlobalGiving is proud to support organizations like Abaco Strong who continue to make a meaningful impact in their communities.

That sounds like a grand slam to us!

With Gratitude,

Donna + the GlobalGiving Team

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
