GameChanger Bucket Brazil

Waves For Water, Nike and Hurley have taken the GameChanger Bucket into another new territory by going to Brazil. The choice seemed obvious as Brazil is a place with a people so passionate about soccer and who will soon host the World Cup 2014!


We headed to Florianopolis. Known for its beaches and its seasonal party life, like many places around the world with similar attractions, one doesn’t need to go far to find poverty. With the help and goodwill of locals we gained access to three different challenged communities where the innovative combination of clean water and sport proved again to be a winner.


Our goal is to expand to all places in need. Thank you for your support!
