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!
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.
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
