What is the All Stars of Giving Challenge?

The All Stars of Giving Challenge is a campaign sponsored by All Sports United that honors and gives back to sport philanthropist that are championing great causes, like Malcolm Jenkins. One of those lucky 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.  Voting Ends May 15

Make a difference and help us to continue giving back. Through Malcolm’s living and leading by example, youth can see that Malcolm Jenkins truly “walks the walk and talks the talk.” Through various humanitarian efforts like the free summer football camp, Get Ready Fest, Project REWARDS and the Holiday Dinner Basket Surprise, The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation is truly making a difference in the lives of youth and families nationwide. We need your help!
