Hello Facebook friends, I have recently visited La Habana, Cuba and it was an amazing experience. Despite everything the Cuban people remain strong and live life full of warm love and happiness. As a kid, I was always happy and the only thing that mattered was my soccer ball. Unfortunately, kids in Cuba play soccer with flat balls or tennis balls. Since the 2018 World Cup in Russia is quickly approaching, I thought it would be a great project to take on and give these kids some soccer fever :) I encourage any of my friends, if you are able to help and donate 1 soccer ball $10.79 or better yet $11.00 USD, nothing more and nothing less.
11 is a symbol for the Guardian Angels watching over the children. If you want to donate more, please just get a friend to donate the same amount of an even 11 !
I have purchased 220 soccer balls at $8.41 plus tax and shipping = $1,851.20 (Picture of receipt attached)
I plan on buying team uniforms, socks, and world cup jerseys with the supplemental support.
* Most importantly, this is for the children only and none of these balls will be sold, resold or distributed in any form or manner to generate revenue.
I will personally return to Cuba and distribute these balls to the children in different neighborhoods for free :)
I will provide receipts
I will provide pictures and video of the entire process
