Caring Causes: NICK's Camp Golf Balls

A South Florida-based non-profit organization, the Chiera Family Foundation, just started a fundraiser aimed at bringing in the same kind of attention as the ice bucket challenge. Instead of throwing cold water over your head, you're striking a pose with a golf ball, a certain golf ball that will help South Florida kids battling cancer.

Each year, more than 15,000 kids and young adults are diagnosed with cancer. The Chiera Family Foundation has teamed up with Bridgestone Golf, so now, by playing golf with a special golf ball, you can make a difference. By purchasing a N.I.C.K.’s CAMP golf ball, you can help kids who are battling cancer attend a special summer camp called NICK’s CAMP, send young adults who have beaten cancer to college, and even teach young cancer patient's life lessons and golf through The First Tee of Broward.

Once you purchase the golf balls, take a photo or video hitting a N.I.C.K.’s CAMP golf ball in the most unusual place. Use your imagination - strike a pose, hit with a group of people, or even a celebrity! The top photos or videos posted will be judged with the winner receiving a free trip entry to the N.I.C.K.’s CAMP golf tournament in South Florida. Just email your entry to or use #playitforward on social media. Then, play it forward by buying another dozen to send to a golf buddy
But that’s not all! Bridgestone Golf merchandise will be awarded to people who send in photos and videos. Also, when people visit, they can order the golf balls to be shipped to them monthly or quarterly. Companies or country clubs can also logo the balls on the opposite side for co-branding at other charity golf tournaments.

N.I.C.K. stands for Nothing Is Impossible for Cancer Kids. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these golf balls can give young cancer patients a summer they will never forget. Some of the same kids who have been sent to camp and attended golf clinics are also going to college through N.I.C.K.’s Scholarships.
