Kids prepare for the 2-hour basketball clinic with introductions from their Globetrotter coaches.

On the first official day of summer, June 21st, we asked for your retweets during our 24 Hour Tip-Off to Summer.  For each retweet @Globies received on any of our tweets that day, we donated $1 towards bringing underprivileged kids to our Summer Skills Clinics who, otherwise, would not be able to attend. The results are in, and here is a breakdown by the numbers:

The total number of retweets the @Globies received on 6/21. That's over 1 every 60 seconds!

The number we will multiply the initial donation by in order to bring even MORE kids to our clinics.

The number of additional kids we're bringing to our clinics in Omaha!      

Thank you to everyone who participated by retweeting @Globies on 6/21! We've been coaching kids across the country all summer, and with 24 clinics reamining on our schedule, there are still plenty of kids to inspire and entertain. Now, because of you, there are 52 more! We worked with the Child Saving Institute and Boys Town organizations in Omaha to bring their amazing kids to our clinics. We had a great time with each and every one of them and hope to see them all again in Omaha soon!
