Sports equipment gathering dust in the basement or garage? Send them along to Sports Gift, a Dana Point, Calif.-based non-profit that supplies sporting gear to underprivileged children throughout the world, while providing them with the framework to learn about goal setting, hard work, fair play, and teamwork. According to Sports Gift:

Unfortunately, many children in poverty stricken areas will never have the opportunity to enjoy sports without the aid of Sports Gift. We seek to reach these children to improve their lives and give them hope through a variety of sports programs.

Working with youth leagues, clubs, schools, and other organizations, as well as sponsoring sporting-goods retailers and manufacturers, Sports Gift has distributed thousands of new and gently used sports equipment throughout the world, including the United States, Mexico, Central America, Africa, Indonesia, and the Middle East. Cash donations are also appreciated. ::Sports Gift
