I am currently a board member of love.fútbol, a non-profit that, since 2006, has engaged and mobilized 29 communities worldwide to create, reclaim and redefine their own soccer spaces as sustainable platforms for social change.
What attracted me to love.futbol is not just the mission, but HOW they go about achieving it. Our partner communities take ownership of the project process, contributing an average of 2,500 volunteer hours per project.
As a result, locals create more than safe places to play, but a true center of community, tangible symbol of unified strength, and sustainable platform for inspiration and change.
2017 was a hallmark year as we finished our second project in Mexico, and reached new lands with projects in Colombia, India and Egypt.
We have a big vision with great momentum right now. I have committed to raise $10,000 between now and February 14th - the day of love in America - which will allow us to take love.fútbol model to new communities and keep fostering the right to play.
I invite you to take part in this opportunity to make a tangible difference in the lives of youth and for entire communities. I hope you will join me in being that #10 that makes a difference on and off the field by supporting my campaign for love.fútbol today!
