The Big Ball Project



This is something different than child loss, but a good cause I think so I'm posting it here for your consideration.

My cousin's kids have started a project called The Big Ball Project. They love soccer and there was a book with photos of kids around the world playing soccer. The kids in Africa did not have a ball- just a bundle of rags. Turns out it costs just $10 to send a ball and a pump to a kid who wants to play. Balls have been sent to Rwanda, Costa Rica and Marakkesh.

For the next 72 hours, they have a donor who will give $1 for every person who 'likes' The Big Ball Project on facebook. Can you take a minute to pop over there and do that?

And if you'd like to donate, just $10 can send a ball and a pump. I will do this this year for part of Gabriel's birthday present.

Wishing you a gentle day,
((hugs))

Thank you for posting about this. Even though our son Eli's birthday was three weeks ago, we are going to add this in this year as well. My husband is European (so a huge soccer fan) so this is really perfect. It's also nice to have something else to do since we didn't find anything we really liked for our home for Eli's birthday this year. Thanks again.
