Nike Wants You to Back Your Block!

We were thrilled to learn recently that Kismet won a grant of $2,500 from Nike Inc. through their ‘Back Your Block’ Initiative! This is the second such grant we have received.

But that is not all! Now through the holiday season, if you go to our Nike Factory Store in North Conway, you will see this great sign:


And, if you buy a Give Nike Give Change gift card while there, Nike will donate an additional $5 to Kismet! Everyone wins!

Thanks Nike! And don’t forget to get to the North Conway Factory store to buy a gift card that supports Kismet!

And be sure to read about the Back Your Block recipients from around the rest of the country–225 organizations won grants for their work in improving the lives of young people through sports.
