Our founder, Adom Appiah, launched his second book on August 10th at Big Air Spartanburg. The book is titled Bouncing Back from Failure. He wrote the book to tell kids just like him that failure isn’t the end. Ball4Good received donations at the event to benefit Carolina Miracle League, a nonprofit that helps kids play baseball. In addition to the funds raised at the launch, a percentage of proceeds from the book will benefit Carolina Miracle League. Here are some photos from the launch. Thanks to all our supporters! Enjoy the photos!
You can buy Bouncing Back from Failure at your local bookstore or here.
You can buy Appiah’s first book, Kids Can Change the World at your local bookstore or at this link.
Happy Holidays! At this special time of year, I’d like to thank you for supporting Ball4Good. We’ve had a great first year, and none of it would have been possible without you. I mean, who would have thought that a kid’s school project could turn into this? I sure didn’t.
Your support drives me to grow Ball4Good. With your help, we have supported or impacted the Boys and Girls Club, Children’s Cancer Partners of the Carolinas, St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital, Boy Scouts, The Cancer Association, Miracle Hill and the Hope Center for Children. We’ve had a lot of fun playing ball, raising funds and bringing the community together.
Thanks to my Ball4Good experience, I wrote a book to inspire kids to change the world and has been receiving public speaking engagements. Once again, thanks a million for believing in me! A big thank you to Ms. Thomas (mentor), Ms. Kelsea Turner (teacher), Houston Graves (2018 Tournament Partner), our volunteers, our celebrity players, my advisors, parents, family, friends and the entire community.
Enjoy your holiday season! Look out for details about the 2018 Ball4Good Tournament!
