*Update #2!

Thank you to everyone who made a donation to Teddy! He is astounded by the effect his presence had on our nation. The World Cup would not have been the same without him or you.

After being lucky enough to make a small impact on the world, Teddy wanted to use the money raised to make a bigger impact on an issue he witnessed in Brazil. That is why Cavalry decided to fund Teddy’s trip, so that he could use 100% of the GoFundMe donations for the Brazilian nonprofit, Gol De Letra. Teddy will continue to raise money until the end of the World Cup to help this cause.

Gol De Letra is a nonprofit that helps underprivileged children in Brazil. To learn more, please visit their site (click here) or watch a piece FIFA made about them (click here).

We hope you enjoy the rest of the World Cup!

*UPDATE!

Our battle might be won, but the war's not over! Any donations over our target will go to the charity of Teddy Goalsevelt's choosing. Thanks for your support.

-----------------------------

Dear America,

Over the course of the 2014 World Cup, one face has come to represent the fans of the US Men's National Team – Teddy Goalsevelt. Unfortunately, Teddy is scheduled to return to the States at round 1's conclusion.

We here at Cavalry, the advertising agency where Teddy (Mike D'Amico) works, see him as the team's mascot now. And we don't think we're alone. That's why we want to lead the charge in helping raise funds to keep him in Brazil for the next round. We'll match every dollar you donate up to $2,500.

Don't give for us. Give for your country! #TeddyInBrazil

Nita Beazley Yes its is ok to make comments on how stupid and idiotic to donate money to people or fat lazy people like this mike d amito to go on a trip by morons that care more about this jerkoff and yes its insane as brittany jackson says, and she and others do have the right to put these morons in shame, since either they are so brain dead to danate money to this loser, regardless its their money, these same morons would and do complain about helping out people in need or children so this FAT ASS could go to brazil, yet scoff on giving a dollar to feed people, or they probaly spent too much on medical marijuana to make them believe it is ok, this mike is a cheapstake,miser and a panhandler and these donors should be and will be put to shame, and God gave us the sense to most of us to think and see and in this case all of these donors are idiots and d amito si es un cheapskate....

I am sure my comment will aggravate Kim,Mary Beth and Estela....I am truly sorry for the pain and suffering you and your families are going through.No,you should not have to sleep in the streets or have a family member waste away before your eyes but that is no reason to call these people morons or belittle them,shame them into NOT donating to this "Teddy" person.People pay $5 for a coffee,$2 to a Vet standing on a corner....but that's their prerogative! Your anger and selfish attitude is not doing YOU any good,is it? This passionate hatred you have typed into the comments doesn't mean a thing,except to YOU! I have seen pages like this for 9 months and yes I have a sick child but I can't make people donate,just breath and let Jesus take the wheel....don't give people your power! God Bless

This is shameful! I cannot believe you would use the power of your expertise to make an ad campaign to fund an employee's vacation. Of course you all are laughing at the stupidity and gullibility of the morons who gave funding for this! How about creating a campaign to get funds for the many underfunded pet shelters or rescue operations?? Put you minds and hearts behind something that benefits something other than your asinine, selfish interests!
