New Grand Guardian Announced for 2020, Always Proud of this

Check out thew new 2020 Grand Gaurdian and see past Grand Guardians. Brett Maas was proud to be the first in 2017. Grand Guardian, A Network Of Entrepreneurial Guardians Guiding Youth Through Education, Mentorship And Resources To Arm Them With An Opportunity To Achieve Their Full Potential For Success.

Our first Grand Guardian, Brett Maas, was the first to win the Grand Guardian title. Introduced to The Valley Guardians at our first ever ‘desert run’ event, Brett, by close friend Matt Blanton.

Brett was inspired by the exciting day of rugged activities, such as Razr rides out in the mountains with a great chance to network with like-minded individuals, have fun, and give back to his community. Not only was his generosity unmatched, but he has also been an advocate for the Valley Guardian Mission since the beginning. He offered endless support and helped define the mission of The Valley Guardians.

“I really enjoyed that every dollar raised went back to the kids who needed it most. While it was amazing to network and have fun with so many fun and exciting people, it meant a lot to see the transparency of where the money was going, and that it was fueling education in the valley. It was so much more than a social club, but I knew we were doing something special that was going to make a lasting difference in the community.” Said Brett Maas on why he was so moved to become the Grand Guardian.

Education is extremely important to Brett, who is a founding member of the Sons Of Arizona. A local charity whose mission is to lend a helping hand and give back by inspiring local children, local school systems, charities, nonprofit organizations, and individual kids who just need a little boost to get them where they need to be! They accomplish this mission by supporting education, helping feed children in need of supporting other non-profits who are working to improve children’s lives.

“For me, my greatest inspiration and motivation comes from being able to make the best life I can for my children. From the moment I wake up to when I lay my head back down, I am constantly pushing myself to be the best father, role model, and to make a positive impact on everyone in my community.” Brett said on the importance of his involvement in these charities.“It’s so important to me that every child lives the best life they can. By improving education, we can give back to the community and give them the opportunity to make the best lives they can.”

Brett continues to find new ways to help build his community through his work with Hayden IR. Brett finds it exhilarating to be exposed to so many different industries, business models, and intelligent people every day. Together they help elevate the profile of micro and small-cap public companies and connect them with the right investors at the right time.

Brett Maas Gives Back to Friend on Facebook Too

Ever see a friend raising money for a good cause on Facebook? One of the things I love about Facebook is I can donate to friends fundraisers like this.

I share things like this not to toot my own horn but to inspire others to give back and to help friends out as well. Also, if this fundraiser still hasn’t hit goal and you see this I appreciate you donating to help the cause. Thanks!

My Donation to 11 Summits Movement and CASA programs

Check out this awesome letter I received from 11 Summits Movement and the CASA Programs.

Dear Brett Maas,

You have helped change a child’s story! On behalf of the 11 Summits movement, thank you for your generosity and your donation to help children who have experienced abuse and neglect. Your recent gift of $500 will help the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) programs in both Arizona and Colorado provide advocacy for youth living in foster care.

Children who are removed from their home due to abuse or neglect are most in need of a dedicated and consistent adult in their life to ensure that their best interest is protected. That is the role of a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA). With a CASA volunteer in place, children in foster care do better in school, spend less time in foster care, and are less likely to re-enter foster care.

Because of your generous donation, the CASA programs in both Arizona and Colorado can continue to recruit, train, and support more CASA volunteers to provide advocacy for these most vulnerable children.

With your support, we are dedicated to growing the CASA program to meet the needs of our communities with the vision of giving every lost and voiceless child a brighter future.

Thank you again for your generous support.

Warm Regards,

11 Summits and CASA Team

One of My Favorite Organizations to Give to, St. Jude

I always like to share giving back to inspire any other people that read this to give back to their favorite charities or organization in their communities that need it.

Just got this from St. Jude for the St. Jude Walk/Run I just did. I encourage others to do what they can when they can especially with organizations like St. Jude that operate 100% based on donations and help kids.

Dear Brett,

Thank you for your generous $100.00 donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We’re incredibly grateful for your support to help end childhood cancer.

Because of donors like you:

  • Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80%.
  • Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Did you know that many employers match charitable contributions made by their employees? Visit stjude.org/matchinggifts, ask your employer or call us at (800) 871-2759 to see if your gift can be doubled.

Please note that you’ll receive a donation acknowledgement letter in the mail for tax purposes. Your gift is tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Your Friends at St. Jude

Help Fight Childhood Cancer, Give Back

As Brett Maas content team we get to see some of the really generous and nice things Brett does to give back. One of them is when he received and email from a friend and it states…

Once again, I am asking for your help.  For the seventh year in a row, I am riding in the Trek 100, a Ride for Hope.

Please consider joining the fight against childhood cancer and related blood disorders. I am riding in the Trek 100 Ride for Hope which supports the MACC Fund. This is a ride truly for hope. Proceeds from this ride will help support critical research efforts in the search for new cures and in the eradication of childhood cancer and related blood disorders. The overall cure rate stands at 80%, but with your help, we will get to 100% — one pedal at a time.

Sam, my son, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in January 2009.  Because of the efforts of the MACC Fund, the survival rate for Sam has increased to 80% from 15% when the MACC Fund began over 30 years ago.

Needless to say Brett was quick to help support a friend, his son, and a great cause. Also, if you read this and they are still raising money to help cure childhood cancer you can donate here.

Brett Maas Donates $500.00 to the Missionary Athletes International, (MAI)

soccerBrett Maas received a letter (portion of that letter below). Brett’s goal is to encourage others to help more people and support others you believe in for great causes.

Friends and Family, I would like to share with you a great opportunity which God has brought my way this summer. Missionary Athletes International, (MAI) a non-profit, non-denominational sports ministry, has asked me as part of the Biola men’s soccer team to be team member on a missions outreach trip to Japan this summer from July 29th-August 10th.

 

The goal of this trip is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the platform of soccer. Personal testimonies, post-game presentations, shared meals, matches, and clinics are just a few of the ways we are able to share God’s love. Many of the people we will be in contact with have never heard the gospel and my team has the opportunity to change that.

 

The Seahorses have been ministering in Japan for the past eighteen years. We will be ministering in three different locations in Japan: Osaka, and Iwakuni. Soccer fever has swept the country and it is our attempt to capitalize on that excitement to share the importance of a relationship with Christ through the platform of soccer. Less than 1% of the Japanese know Jesus Christ as Lord and personal Savior.
