The Gift of Time
Foundation (GOT) invites you to give children the gift of
We are developing plans to build a youth development complex in Missouri;
the first of several strategically located around the country. Saving
our children, and our future, inspires us to mount a national effort
to provide safe places for children to learn life skills. America, we
must increase our commitment to making sure the potential of our children
does not go unrealized. There is an escalating trend among children
to engage in activities that damage and destroy life and property. This
tendency has no social or ethnic boundaries. We will reverse this trend
when we start spending more time teaching them productive activities.
The GOT program will mandate that children participate in 3 components;
including academics, physical fitness
and community service. In order to become
productive citizens, children must understand and accept the responsibility
for all three of these aspects of life. Our target ages are 6 years
to 12 years; although the program will offer participation up to 18
years of age. We realize there are a number of youth programs in place
and new ones are developing daily. We will take advantage of these programs
by corroborating our efforts and resources.
GOT facility will include 400-meter tracks (indoor and outdoor); inside
a 20,000 to 25,000 seat arena. Venues where children can get tutorial
and study assistance. We will provide programs in arts and crafts, such
as music, theater, dance and film making. The GOT complex will make
provisions for child care; and provide care for seniors and children
with special needs.
The GOT project will become a reality that will work for our future
if we all participate.
