Hello friends! Recently Selton saw a video online about a super durable soccer ball. And when we say durable.. imagine, stabbing a knife through the ball several times, and nothing happens. Imagine a giant lion playing with it, gnawing on it and nothing happens. What intrigued us was not the soccer ball itself, but the company’s vision and mission.
The company is called the One World Futbol Project
, founded by Tim Jahnigen. He was moved after watching news footage about traumatized youth playing soccer on dirt using a ball that they had made themselves. The ball was made out of trash and twine. Can you imagine playing in such harsh conditions? After watching some videos ourselves, I’m grateful that Hunter has so many options of where to play (usually in parks with grass). So long story short, the mission of OWFP is to bring the power of play to disadvantaged youths, usually in third-world or war-torn countries. For every One World Futbol sold, the company donates one to an organization that is situated in disadvantaged communities. We were sold, instantly.
What’s this? A package for me?
(The ball was actually delivered within a week.)
What’s inside? Let me see!!
A new soccer ball? Where did this come from? Cool, it even comes with a Thank You card!
My first time playing with the One World Futbol outdoors.
Although the ball is harder than the ones I’m used to playing with, I was still able to grab it with my mouth. Woohoo. I approve of this ball!
My doggy friend, Tequila was also interested in my new toy. Here’s a picture of me telling her to convince her own parents to buy her one. I hope they do!! It’s for a good cause, DUH!
Mommy took an action shot of me playing with my new ball. I love it! Did you know that my new ball is nearly indestructible? It’ll never need a pump and will never go flat. I will have this ball for years to come.
Thank you mommy and papa for my new toy. I hope some kids are enjoying time with the ball that we’ve donated as well. Go check out their website!!
Toodles for now!
