Members Make a Difference #ADayWIthoutHunger

Global Village Champions Foundation has launched our 2011 Summer Membership Drive.  Yank Barry, our Founder and Chairman is excited to reward and meet 50 of our members and guests in Las Vegas for the most exciting boxing event of the year -  Pacquiao vs Marquez World Welterweight Champion Fight.

We felt it was important for you to know what we have accomplished this past year with the help of Champions and members from all around the world.  The world has seen some of the worst natural disasters in a generation and our Global village Champions Foundation has mobilized our resources and NGO partners to provide immediate provisions including water, food, medical supplies and basic necessities.

January 2010 - Devastating Earthquake Haiti
Global Village Champions chartered a private plane and was delivering aid to Haiti within three days of the quake and we flew 7 planeloads of water, food, medical supplies into Haiti in the weeks just following the earthquake.  Working with our partners, The Bahama's Red Cross and The Haitian Rotary and the UN we were able to deliver the needed supplies directly to those in need.
