A shot falls in a PPI - SA's Tournament of Champions. The same drive on display in the NCAAs this March motivates ball players all around the world.
Swept up in the usual excitement this time of year? Looking for a way to participate that means more than usual, that puts the money so often lost in a March pool to good use? Well, PPI has set up its own bracket competition and is inviting its staff, alumni and other friends of the organization to participate – that means you!
The competition is totally free, but PPI is asking those who participate to consider making a $10 donation to its “March Goodness” campaign in lieu of an entry fee. “March Goodness” is a competition among nonprofits to try to generate the most online donations over the course of March Madness, with corporate grants up to $10,000 as prizes. The total amount raised doesn’t matter this round – only the total numbers of donations received – so even a small contribution can make a big difference.
PPI’s offering a prize pack with some PPI gear and a framed photo from its work abroad to the top bracket among those who participate in March Goodness. So don’t just sink your money in the office pool when you look to join the fun this March, use it to further the improve the futures of children in some of the world’s most deeply divided communities.

Help more young people in the Middle East, Northern Ireland, Israel and the West Bank, and Cyprus find their "One Shining Moment" with PPI.
The brackets are set. The teams are ready. It’s that time of year again.
Drop a dime. A single $10 donation can help do big things for PPI.
If you’re as big a hoops fan as we are here at PPI, for the next couple of weeks, you’ll likely have one thing on your mind. From Spartansburg, South Carolina (home to first-time dancer Wofford) to the sunny shores of Santa Barbara (home of The Gauchos), there’s no better time for basketball than March Madness.
We here at PPI recently joined our own version of March Madness. It’s called “March Goodness” and is organized by Razoo, a website that helps connect donors to worthy organizations. Over the next two weeks, we’ll be competing against 15 other nonprofits in the “East” regional – whoever gets the most unique donations of $10 or more wins. And with winning comes a bonus donation from Razoo’s prize pot, to help us continue bridging divides through basketball all over the world.
Please, take a minute and head over to the March Goodness page, and make a one-time $10 donation to PPI to support our effort. Then, tell your friends and family and get them involved. We’re seeded 14th in our region, but everyone knows March Madness is all about the upsets!
P.S. Want to get creative? Why not consider donating your friends’ or office pool to PPI? Instead of collecting money for a pot, ask everyone participating to make a $10 donation to PPI. You can track our progress throughout the tourney, and, you can watch all this month’s games knowing that you’ve helped make a difference through basketball. Besides, the guy who just picks which mascots he likes better wins every year any way…
Just as a reminder, here’s what you’ll be supporting:
