THE PLAYER FOUNDATION

Letter from Gary
“Growing up as a boy in South Africa was not easy for our family. My mother died when I was just 8 years old. My father was busy working in the gold mines, while my brother was off fighting in World War II, and my sister was at boarding school. We did not have a lot of money.

With the travel my profession and wins have afforded my wife Vivienne and I, we have seen the poverty and enormous needs around the world. We have gained great satisfaction from giving something back to the world in moments of success.

I have found that the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others does not thrust itself upon us, but we do not need to look hard for it, either. When you spot the chance to give back to the world, act on it. You will have made life better. For others and for yourself.”
