Many of you know my younger brother, Jade. He’s 11 years-old.
For sometime he’s been wanting to help do something to help people in Africa receive clean water. He came up with this idea of putting together a campaign that raises money through our partner organization, Vox United. I thought it was a great idea and so here is what we are going to do.
Charity Ball is partnering with Vox United to share the beautiful game and the gift of clean water with a village in rural Mozambique. Right now millions of people in Africa do not have access to clean water. Together we can change that.
To get the ball rolling, we’ve launched a PLAY [well] Campaign. Our goal is to raise $5000 to install a new community well that will give about 1500 people clean water. That’s about $3 per person or cup a coffee at Starbucks. For every $66 donated to the campaign Charity Ball will match it with a brand new, quality soccer ball. Why $66? Because $66 represents water for 22 people, which is the number of players on a soccer field during a game.
In the end, the village will have clean water and 76 new soccer balls to play the beautiful game for a long time. It’s going to be really cool.
Charity Ball will get the soccer balls, but we need your help to get the water.
Check this out…
If 152 people donate $33 each, it’s done.
If 50 people donate $100 each, it’s done.
If one business donates 5K, it’s done.
Want to help us get it done? You can donate to the campaign here.
Thanks for helping us bring the gift of play and clean water to people who need and deserve it most.
