With your support, love.fútbol has empowered communities in 8 impoverished Guatemalan communities to organize, design and build their own soccer fields. As projects in Guatemala continue, at your request love.fútbol will be expanding operations to Brazil. Global Giving will help us kick off our new campaign!

love.fútbol is competing in the Global Open Challenge to raise funds for our first project in Brazil! The Challenge takes place between August 2 and August 31 and the target is to raise $25,000, enough to complete one new project. However, if love.fútbol raises $4,000 from 50 unique donors we will be invited to stay on Global Giving permanently! This will be a great way to connect future donors to the love.fútbol cause.

We need all the support you can muster to get the word out. There are incentives to telling your friends, family and colleagues about the Challenge. The 5 organizations shared the most on Facebook will receive an extra donation from Global Giving! Please visit our Global Open Challenge project page and “like” it to share it on your Facebook profile.

If you considered making a donation this month please be sure to do it through the Global Open Challenge, as PayPal will not count towards this total. It can be done through the Global Giving widget located in the right-hand column, which will lead you directly to our project page. Your contribution will help take innocent children off the streets and keep them on the field!

To stay current on our progress and for more information on the Challenge, visit the Challenge Leader Board.

Thank you for your continued support. With your help we will make our next project a reality!
