IT4Kids is a fundraising charity that raises cash to help children engage in sports. They help children who have either been left out of sports by physical disability or by a lack of money acting as a barrier to enter a sport. Jordy Kool of IT4Kids discusses how this unique charity works. We learn that as companies send equipment that they seek to dispose of or take out of use, they, as donors, have a major measure of control over where the money will ultimately go, within the overall objective of helping children join a sport of their choice, that finances or a physical issue has been a barrier to entry. IT4Kids raises money in a variety of ways, but equipment coming out of use is a major source.
