$7370 donated to Right To PlayBy Kim Moe Krohn
Our 1 Donation 1 Education campaign ended on 31st Dec 2021 and raised a total of $7,370. As a result, 257 children will get access to education and play through our charity partner Right To Play's programs for all of 2022.
At College Scholarships USA we work with education through sports. We obtain scholarships for our student-athletes allowing them to combine a US college education with their sport.
Through our annual 1 Donation 1 Education campaign, our student-athletes, past and present, and people in our network, are donating a ”scholarship” to a child in need.
For a one-time donation of a ”scholarship” of $27 USD (equivalent to 250 NOK / 250 SEK / 175 DKK / 20 GBP / 24 EUR / 38 AUD) one child will get one full year of education through play in Right To Play’s programs.
Right To Play was founded in 2000 by legendary Olympic champion from Norway, Johann Olav Koss. It is a global organization that uses play to protect, educate, and empower more than 2.3 million children to overcome the effects of poverty, conflict, and disease in disadvantaged communities.
At College Scholarships USA we are a proud official national supporter of Right to Play Norway and all money raised will go directly to them.
This is a cause that means so much to us and we take great pride in our network of student-athletes helping with a donation and spreading the word about Right To Play and their fantastic impact around the world.
