What is the All Stars of Giving Challenge?

Join your fellow fans in selecting the ten All Stars of Giving. One of those All Stars will then be crowned the Humanitarian of the Year by All Sports United and receive in-kind services and a cash reward for his/her favorite cause. Donations, from individuals and corporate sponsors, will also increase the amount of cash rewards. 

Your votes have determined our All Stars for this year. Thank you.  

Voting ended on May 15, 2014. Individuals voted up to 3 times per day for 30 days. A selection committee determined by All Sports United will identify and announce the winner of their Humanitarian of the Year Award on June 23, 2014 in Chicago.

Donations can increase the rewards to 13 great causes. Please donate today. 

Each of the causes championed by the All Stars will receive an unrestricted grant based on the number of votes their All Star receives in the final round of voting. All donations will go to the Givkwik Fund managed by a 501(c)3 nonprofit financial services firm and may be tax deductible (consult your tax professional).
