Let's Play it Forward is a non-profit organization started by a group of teens from Westchester, NY. We collect + donate used sports equipment to kids and organizations in need. We have donated 42,343 pieces of gently used equipment to over 100 locations.

Let's Play It Forward Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to share the gift of sports by donating new and gently used sports equipment to underpriveledged children and adults so they can play the sports they love.

Let's Play It Forward Inc. was founded in February 2012 when a group of teens from Westchester, NY were cleaning out their garages and realized that they had an abundance of gently used and outgrown sports equipment. The teens reached out to the community to see if there were any organizations that needed this equipment, and the response was overwhelming. Thus, the teens founded Let's Play It Forward Inc., which has since donated more than 42,000 pieces of equipment to over 100 locations around the world. 

Let's Play It Forward has been thrilled and incredibly grateful to receive countless donations of equipment from the generous community and beyond, and the need for sports equipment among various organizations grows by the day. Unfortunately, the organization's monetary funds are beginning to dwindle, making it difficult to ship the equipment to those who are excited to receive it. Without the necessary funds for shipping, Let's Play It Forward may be unable to help meet the need for sports equipment among our recipients.

We ask that you consider donating to provide our organization with funds to ship equipment to the organizations, children, and adults who are eagerly awaiting it. Please help us bring the gift of sports to these children and adults so that they may be able to play the sports they love. Any donation will help us to continue in our mission. Thank you so much for your time, kindness and generosity.
