The holiday season is here and what better time to give back? Many people often forget that the main purpose of the holidays is to give thanks and show love to close ones who are dear to your heart, as well as others who are less fortunate.
Luckily, there are people in the world who always have giving on their minds and not just during this time of the year, but all year through. One person who's an example of this is Haron Hargrave. A former Division I basketball player, Hargrave aka H20 played ball in countries such as China, Romania, Hungary and more. Since ending his professional athletic career, H20 has converted his love of the game into charity work with his organization called Ballin4peace.
"Ballin4peace is a series of celebrity charity events that I put together to bring awareness to the senseless acts of violence that takes place in our world, oh so often," H20 told iHeartRadio. "I put the celebrity aspect into Ballin4peace to help spread the word a little bit more due to the fact that celebrities have a large audience and they definitely can help with getting the right people on board with this mission."
Many celebrities have been rocking with H20's cause. From famous faces like Power 105.1's Em EZ and DJ Self, Love & Hip Hop's Tara Wallace, rapper Jim Jones, actor/singer Mack Wilds, famed hip hop producer Amadeus, Power actress Donshea Hopkins, and SO much more; Ballin4peace is supported a great deal.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Ballin4peace threw a charity bowling event at Bowlmor Times Square to raise hurricane relief funds for Puerto Rico.
Speaking about his continued charitable efforts, H20 told us: "I will continue the clothes drive that I’m doing with Rejectz Worldwide. That’s a drive that’s going on to support Puerto Rico. Also, I will go to different homeless shelters and will feed the homeless over the Thanksgiving holiday. And I will continue to personally deliver clothes and sneakers to the homeless and anyone that needs them."
As for his following events next year, H20 said: "My next Ballin4peace event will be in March 2018. We will continue on with the next chapter in the road to peace. It will be the 4th annual celebrity charity basketball game. I hope to see you all there."
