In the Spring of 2013, /r/soccer — a community of passionate fans and students of the sport soccer around the world — teamed with One World Futbol Project to demonstrate the power of sport to bring communities together for good through the /r/soccer Let’s Go Play campaign.
All balls raised through the campaign are being distributed to One World Futbol Project partner organizations using the balls in programs around the world. All monies raised through the /r/soccer Let’s Go Play campaign on crowdtilt.com went to purchase additional One World Futbols.
The Campaign generated more than 200 One World Futbols in just one month!
“We can make a very real difference in the lives of very real people with something as simple as a ball that refuses to quit,”
— /r/soccer community
Our mission is to bring the healing power of play through the One World Futbol to youth living in disadvantaged communities worldwide. We believe that play is a necessity of life—children need to play to learn and grow. In play, every child is a superhero, dreams can be realized, traumatic moments are temporarily forgotten and healing can begin—that is the power of play.
