How we got started
Former Major League Baseball Pitcher and World Series Champion, Kyle McClellan, had the idea of Brace for Impact 46 after he and his wife, Bridget, took a life-changing mission trip to Haiti. "I want to demonstrate how giving back can enrich your life every bit as much as those you serve. Through Brace For Impact 46, it's my goal to be able to have an impact on the lives of others," says McClellan.
Who we impactBrace for Impact 46 provides financial funding to our partners in Cap Haitien, Haiti and North St. Louis, Missouri. The model that we use is the same in Haiti and North St. Louis. We rely on local leadership for knowledge of needs in the communities that we serve. Whether we are investing in children or families we are creating leaders that will realize their potential to use their influence to IMPACT their communities in a positive way. Everyone needs someone to Champion for them at some point in their lives and this looks differently in different parts of the world, but we will be the Champions for those looking for an opportunity for a successful future.
We continue to financially support these children, and provide for their daily needs. With your help, future children looking for a safe haven to call home will be able to do so at IDADEE.
We know that the children of this city are the future, and we are committed to empowering and equipping those children with the tools they need to become the leaders of tomorrow.
