Project HOTSHOTS aims to serve as a conduit for those who wish to share, aid and teach (as well as learn from) the children and young adults of the world, especially those most in need of what many others take for granted every day. We strive to sow the seeds of friendship among the youth of the world using modern communications technology and something just about every child loves: sports.
