I was a bus driver for a non-profit soccer team called Global FC before coronavirus. Global FC gives refugee kids in Kansas City an opportunity to play on a club soccer team. They also provide year-round education and mentoring programs. Global FC responded to the pandemic with a meal delivery program and fun learning opportunities when the soccer season was interrupted (I helped teach a ukulele class on Zoom).
Global FC is having their 2020 online fundraiser with the goal of raising $120,000. The fundraiser runs from November 9 to December 9, and my personal fundraising goal is $1,000.
