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.

Their efforts are focused on inspiring local children, helping local school systems, charities, not- for -profit organizations and individual kids who just need a little boost to get them where they need to be!

Brett Maas Donates $1000.00 to Team Hole in the Wall

It feels good to give back. Just received this message today after giving $1000.00 to a good cause. I share this to help encourage others to give. Givers gain!

2011 Chicago Marathon
Dear Brett Maas,

Thank you for supporting one of our Team Hole in the Wall members! Your gift will help make this Team Hole in the Wall event a success and help a seriously ill child experience the magic of a Hole in the Wall Camp.

Because of your generosity, Hole in the Wall Camps are able to provide a camp experience to thousands of children who, because of the severity of their illness, are unable to attend a traditional camp. By coming to camp, these children share the simple pleasures usually associated with a healthy childhood – acceptance, safe play and the building of lasting friendships. They get to create more than a little mischief, eat lots of good kid food and sing songs under the stars while roasting marshmallows.

At each Hole in the Wall Camp, we are inspired with every new encounter we have with a camper. As we listen to their camp stories, the world takes on more color, is more hopeful, and more filled with love. Their joy, their appreciation for their time at camp, their indomitable courage and spirit make Hole in the Wall Camps very special and sacred. Thank you again for your generous support to help make this possible.

Pay it Forward: Brothers collect items to donate to Alabama

BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) – A couple of guys in Bladen County have plans to ‘pay it forward’ by helping tornado victims in Tuscaloosa, despite recovering from recent damage themselves.

Cole Young and his brother Steven are combining efforts to help victims of the storms that swept through the South last week.

“When Elizabethtown was devastated with tornadoes we had people from outside come in here to also help us,” explained Cole. “So, it’s kind of our way of repaying folks.”

The independent business owner said his family scrambled to get power for his baby’s breathing machine after the storms hit about 200 yards from his home. Now, Cole can only imagine what some people are going through in Alabama.

The Youngs are loading up a 35 foot trailer with food, water, toiletries and clothes to take to the tornado victims in Tuscaloosa. They are asking the public to donate whatever they can. So far they have collected nearly 600 pounds of food and supplies.

Donations are being collected at the Food Lion in Elizabethtown or at Cole’s home located at 218 C Aviation Parkway.

Remember today is Tax Day and think about Charity for Tax Refunds

Charity comes to mind when doing your taxes. For me its for two reason. First any donations you make are usually a chance to write off on your taxes. But please follow the advise of a CPA or a tax professional when it comes to what you can write off and what you can’t.

Secondly, any tax refund you get back is another opportunity to give back to charity and help your local community. I always favor local charities and its as easy as going to Google and searching “your local city/state + charities” for some ideas. So when you get that well deserved tax refund hopefully think about giving 5,10, or 15% of it to a local charity that can help others.

Thanks for your eyes on this. And fee free to connect with me at the links below.

Brett Maas says donate to Haiti

Sometimes catastrophes hit without warning or notice. And for the people of Haiti this exactly what happen. We all spend at least 5.00 a day on lunch, Starbucks, cigarettes what ever. My point is that we should all pitch in as much as we can and help people in their time of need because you never know when it will happen to you.
