Project Update and Happy Holidays!

Happy Holiday season to everyone!  We at Magic Bus wanted to give everyone an end of year update on the Magic Bus Girls' Soccer Team and some of the great things that have come out of this summer's trip from this side.  

First off, some great news for Prajakta Tambadkar!  Last month, she was selected to be part of the 2012 Maharashtra State U19 Girls' Soccer Team!  She will spend the next year competing at national tournaments representing her home state.  She gives thanks not only to Magic Bus, but to the entire Julie Foudy Academy Team for helping her hone her skills on the field over the past two summers, the second of which was made possible by supporters like you.

Also, in the past few months, Julie Foudy has really gone to bat for Magic Bus by recommending us to speak at the espnW Summit in Tucson in early October.  We took part in a Global Perspectives for Women in Sports panel and you can catch the entire 45 min in the attached link below.  Some major discussions have come out of that weekend and some really exciting talks about what the exchange program may look like in 2013 and beyond!  Two exchange anyone?  :-)

Finally, we'd like to thank you all for your contributions this year through GlobalGiving.  It's been a tough year for so many, which makes your donations that much more meaningful. Thank you for giving these girls a way to be inspirsed and take that energy back home to their families and communities. A reminder that the thank you letters you recieved should serve as your tax-credit receipt for the 2012 tax year.

If you or someone you know is looking for an end-of-year cause to donate before the year ends, we kindly request you consider Magic Bus once again!  

Thanks for your continued support.
