Give two soccer balls. Your gift of two soccer balls can replace a makeshift banana leaf ball or rounded wad of trash for an energetic boy or girl.
Children around the world love soccer more than any other sport. Yet many children in poverty have never played with a real toy, let alone an actual soccer ball. That's because when basics like food and healthcare are scarce, there's no money left over for simple pleasures.
When the real soccer balls arrive, children like Amanuel from Ethiopia are overjoyed. "World Vision is just like a father," says the 13-year-old, "[who] tries to make an individual achieve his dream."
Soccer is Amanuel's passion. "[It] is not only scoring a goal and entertaining yourself," he explains. "It is beyond that for me. It is an art. It gives you an opportunity to get acquainted with new friends."
Give two soccer balls today, and give children like Amanuel a chance to set their spirits free.
