Gearing up for the Start of the Season

Practicing for the start of the season!
Practicing for the start of the season!

With just a few weeks left until the start of the soccer season, we’re excited about the enthusiasm of the local teams as they prepare their fields, start to practice, and organise their leagues.

That organisation of leagues has led to quite a change! This is the league’s first season since the earthquake, and they’d like to put all the difficulties of 2010 behind them by making this the biggest soccer season they possibly can, and that means a lot more teams.  They’d like to see more than 900 youths playing on almost 100 teams.

With your support, we’ll be able to get these kids playing soccer in Haiti, giving them a positive outlet this summer and reminding them that even though more than a year has passed since the earthquake, we haven’t forgotten them.

Until May 20th, it’s even easier than usual to support community football in Haiti. During Global Giving’s Recurring Donation Challenge, any recurring donation you make gives us the possibility of winning up to $2,500!

Just $10 a month from you might mean we win more than $2,500, so please dig deep and give what you can. If you can’t make a contribution, you could still help by letting friends and family know about the Recurring Donation Challenge.

Regardless of whether or not you’re able to make a recurring donation, your support continues to inspire us. Thanks so much for all you’ve done, and warm regards from Haiti.
