This piece of sports equipment meant so much to the Brazilian countryside and the idea that they could go months or more without a soccer ball was not an option, so for the next few years we would include in our luggage, a soccer ball or two, a pump, the occasional pair of cleats and one year even some kids jerseys. So, when we started building our website we did not want to just have Go-Fund-Me or IndieGoGo campaigns, we wanted to do something different. There is something to be said for unwrapping a present instead of simply receiving a gift card.
The “Soccer Ball” program is what started our Care & Share program on our site. Our Care & Share program is designed to help people in need like the indigenous people of the Amazon. Money is raised through not only donations but through the purchase of many items to be brought to remote villages like personal items such as shoes and blankets to educational products and school supplies.
How the Soccer Ball program works is this, for $35 you can purchase a ball from our online store. The profits made from the sale will go directly to people in the Amazon for special needs like digging a well for fresh drinking water or fixing a generator. The Soccer Ball will travel with us, or you if you are going on one of our trips to one of the villages to be presented them as a token of your support. The products on our Care & Share program will always be delivered in person by us, one of our trip hosts or our clients and friends. We are so excited to kick off our new website with creative ideas like the Soccer Ball program. We hope you will find it as fun and rewarding as we do and contribute as you see fit.
