Karly Krasnow is the co-founder, along with her brother Jeffrey Krasnow, of their own non-profit organization called Balls Go Round. Karly took action when she witnessed many high-end country clubs throwing away dead tennis balls. She and her brother realized that if they simply recycled the balls and used them to their extent, it would help the community in many ways.
Balls Go Round has so far donated them to nursing homes (they cut them in half and put them on the wheelchairs/walkers), needy schools in Harlem (for P.E. classes), and tennis facilities that can't afford more tennis balls. Karly and her brother have been doing this for 5 years so far and have donated thousands of tennis balls.
