Want to have some fun while supporting a great cause? Like playing hoops? Help support our friend Brian Smith of The Hoop Dream – remember his dream?

This is the story behind The Hoop Dream. Brian Joseph Smith is the president and founder of The Hoop Dream and he partnered with Americas Association for the Care of Children (AACC) which is a registered 501c3 non-profit, based out of Boulder, CO. Their mission is to bring the game of basketball to East Africa where Brian and his team currently have 13 hoops throughout Kenya and Uganda. –Read my full story on The Hoop Dream, here.
