It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for two young girls when they spotted former NBA player AC Green at Fish Fest, a Christian concert festival. They told him about the chance that they and six other teens have to go to China for missionary work with Youth With A Mission, an international missionary organization. But the total per teen is $3000 – which collectively is a financial challenge.
When Green learned of the opportunity, he pledged his involvement on the spot. Through the Christian Flower Network, founded by AC Green, all 8 kids and 2 chaperones involved will receive donations toward their missionary trip. During the month of June, 30% of the sales generated on their website for silk flowers and gift certificates will go to the missionary opportunity for the teens – as long as one selects Panorama Baptist Church as the organization – at www.christianflowernetwork.com.
The missionary expedition will be based nine driving hours away from where the Chinese earthquake happened, and is hoping to get the chance to lend their support in the affected area.
AC Green also has his own organization which helps kids, the AC Green Youth Foundation.
