What 's Red Zone?

Red Zone paddle adds a way to win points by placing a target in the middle of the back screen. A team that hits the target wins the point.

What 's Common Hope?

Learn more about the great work being done by this organization by talking to Mary or Gary Doten, Jane Veldman or Doug Brown, all of whom have been to Guatemala to see Common Hope in action. Or look at to see how a small investment can make a huge difference in a child s future.
