I have a puma junior racquet I will send for free, I'll even cover shipping. I'ts such a cool racquet I've though of putting an adult grip on it and using it myself, but I knew there was a kid out there who needed it...danielrauch72@yahoo.com

I had asked for some donated racquets and daniel said he
had some to give to the mexican kids, and boy did he, he went out
and bought brand new ones, the brothers were very excited

here is an action photo after we got back from church this last sunday.

I told cesar, (the bigger boy)

"Cesar, show me an overhead".
"Stop!!!!!!!!!!, Noooo, Wait!!!!!!"
"I don't mean hit miguel over the head"

ahhh, kids. I love em

daniel, no more from you :-)
you have been very generous, the boys told me to thank you

Yuck, dude. Really uncool thing to say in an uplifting thread...

Because it's a hassle selling junk rackets on ****. If you factor in shipping, **** fees, paypal fees, in the end you hardly make anything.

I understand the skeptic in you, but sometimes it's probably better to not voice certain thoughts in certain places. Esp. if it's not hurting anyone.

Dude, these are old junk racquets. What other use would the OP have for them? He couldn't even make 2 bucks off them. Sure, sometimes I think like you about issues like these, but this one is as harmless as they come.

thanks for the support all, I understand the skepticsim, but I give out my #, email, take pics of the kids after giving the m the stick, not sure what else I could do to assure you they are going to a good cause. anyhow, I'll have to see if some other kids would like some. I mean these kids have nothing, daddy or mommy have no car, they are stuck in they're apartment complex 24x7 365 days a year, then because they are poor, you should see the crap they eat, I mean fruity pebbles for supper. It is heart breaking, I have taken 4 families under my wing and trying my best to make thier lives better than If no one ever reached out to them. I tell them God loves them and show them God loves them by showing them that I love them. I can't even express how much I love these kids now.

take care all
