Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone

” An act of Kindness “





” The GB family is on a mission GB Downers Partnership with gbwear is engaging in a noble cause this month, The BAJA Mission kids we are not only on a mission to better ourselves and teammates, but to make a positive impact on the world around us. We have helped many charitable organizations and families in need in our community since we opened our doors. This time, we are taking on a mission a little further away, but just as close to our hearts. When Professor Carlos learned of the “Baja Kids Mission”, he knew right away that this would be the next project for our school. The children in this area live a life in which they struggle to have even their most basic needs met on a daily basis. Shoes, school supplies and daily hygiene items are considered a luxury. We will start off this project by sending a Gracie Barra backpack for each child filled with some school items, a toothbrush and toothpaste and a new pair of shoes. We ask that you consider joining a teammate or two to provide for one of the children involved in the project. Starting next week, we will have a poster at the school with a notecard for each child with their name and shoe size. You can pick one child, pair up with some GB friends and have your donations ready to send by mid-June. Gracie Barra has very generously offered us the official backpacks for half cost while they SPONSORED the rest ! Please consider joining us for this very important project. We are truly blessed with the most kind and generous members at GBDG! – “No act of kindness is too small. The gift of kindness may start as a small ripple that over time can turn into a tidal wave affecting the lives of many.”
