Jan. 25, 2013 - PRLog -- Los Angeles, CA – Today Children Sport International and Groupon Grassroots (http://grassroots.groupon.com), the philanthropic arm of Groupon, announced the launch of a local campaign to provide fitness programs and equipment to underserved youth in Los Angeles.

The Sports for Community Wellness campaign will be available on the Los Angeles Groupon Grassroots page beginning on 24th, January and running through 31st, January. Utilizing Groupon Grassroots’ collective action model, Groupon subscribers can pledge support for the Children Sports International initiative in increments of $10 with each $20 providing three weeks of sports-performance training for an underserved youth in the Los Angeles area.

This campaign will help Children Sports International reach out to low income communities and schools and  train local volunteers to build a child’s confidence and physical fitness though the latest in sports performance training.

“We’re excited to leverage the collective action model of Groupon Grassroots to raise support for Children Sports International,” said Danny Vasquez, Founder and Executive Director. “We love working with innovative community groups and we look forward to creating new awareness for Children Sports International as one of the local organizations in Los Angeles to be featured on Groupon Grassroots.”

One hundred percent of the Groupon Grassroots campaign proceeds will be used to provide passionate, well-trained volunteers to get groups of kids moving with fun, fitness activities that will improve strength, flexibility, coordination, and overall athletic performance. Kids will receive all the necessary equipment and coaching they need to build healthy bodies and healthy minds.

The campaign will only be funded when the tipping point is reached. If 40 people donate $10 to this Grassroots campaign, then Children Sports International can provide three weeks of sports-performance training for 20 underserved youth in the Los Angeles area. Each additional $20 raised will provide three weeks of training for another child and will go towards screening and training volunteer coaches.
