From the Big Apple to Chicago to Aurora, the summer of 2012 has seen a rise in gun violence in the US. It’s not as if we expect the violence to go away. Not at all. We just want to see improvement, and over the course of this bloody summer, it’s gotten worse. Dime Magazine has always been about celebrating the roots of the game, and because of that, we are committed to ending the violence that has hit our cities, basketball courts and community. Now, here’s your chance to contribute. We’ve released a “Shoot Jumpers, Not Guns” t-shirt, and 100% of the profits will go towards refurbishing basketball courts, providing free clinics in urban areas, providing security for existing leagues, and promoting literacy.
