12,000 miles, 15 different countries, and one shared passion. World FC, a non-profit movement with a mission of bringing “the world closer together through the beautiful game of futbol”, is raising awareness for their World FC Project 2014.
The project is dedicated to providing under served children with safe, durable soccer equipment. We’re talking cleats, shin guards, balls, apparel, the works. You probably have some gently used soccer gear (in the back of your closet or rolling around in your trunk, maybe) that you have no idea what to do with. No more excuses! Here’s a chance to give it to a good cause. To get started, just contact World FC here.
With plans to traverse the 12,000 miles from Chicago, Illinois to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, they are calling it a “Philanthropic Road Trip”. The World FC team will be visiting a youth non-profit organization to hand-deliver the equipment in each of the ten American countries participating in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. “The USA qualified ten times?”, you might be saying. No, they will be visiting Central and South American countries as well, including Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Ecuador, Honduras, Argentina.
Founded by Parker Heaps and Ryan Hendricks, World FC is about more than just doling out soccer equipment though. They have aspirations of social change, using the world’s most popular sport as a point of contact.
They can certainly use your help in improving the lives of children throughout these ten countries.
