Project Details

We are trying to raise money to build a Gaga Ball Pit. You may be asking – what exactly IS Gaga ball? Ga-ga (literally ‘touch-touch’ in Hebrew) is a variant of dodgeball that is played with one ball. The game combines dodging, striking, running, and jumping, with the object of being the last person standing. Players hit the ball at each other with their hands, and are eliminated if the ball strikes them on or below the knee. The game can be played by a group of individual players or with teams, as well as in one-on-one matches. Rules, ball types, pit surfaces, and pit sizes can vary widely at different venues. Other names for this game include Israeli dodgeball, octo-ball and panda ball. Gaga Ball is a game that anyone can play and be included. It’s great fun and can help to increase activity and physical fitness for anyone that plays. We will have volunteers to actually construct the Gaga Ball Pit and it should be able to be completed in one weekend m We will need $350 to purchase the building materials we need to build the Gaga Ball Pit on the campus here at Trinity Christian Academy and hope that you will be able to help. Any donation amount is appreciated.

Partial Funding Plan

If we don’t reach our goal to build a Gaga Ball Pit, we would like to purchase outdoors basketball hoops

We went in to The Home Depot at The Forum to ask about the possibility of getting a reduced price on the lumber to build the Gaga Ball Pit. We told them about the project and they said that they would be able to help. We got confirmation yesterday from the manager at The Home Depot that they WILL indeed be able to help us with our project! THEY HAVE GRACIOUSLY OFFERED TO PROVIDE THE LUMBER AND LABOR TO BUILD THE GAGA BALL PIT!!!! W We will hear back from them on Monday to discuss the specifics on what date they can build it!!!
Since The Home Depot has graciously offered to build our Gaga Ball Pit, we are excited to announce that we will be able to use the funds that were donated to purchase a water hydration station for the campus! Water is an essential element of leading a healthy lifestyle and we are encouraging students and staff to make a healthy choice of water versus a sugary beverage. Thank you all so much for your generous contributions and we are still accepting additional funds on this site if you would still like to donate. All funds raised will be used to improve the healthy choice and the campus in general.
