We have wonderful news to share: thanks to your generosity and support, love.fútbol earned a permanent place on Global Giving's website! Over 1,000 members of the love.fútbol family liked our page on facebook and over 80 people donated. We couldn't have done it without you!

Making it on to Global Giving's website is a major accomplishment for love.fútbol. Global Giving is an online hub that connects socially conscious people to projects worth supporting and a permanent place gives us exposure to people looking for causes to contribute to as well as a new source of revenue. Additionally, being a member of the Global Giving community is a seal of validation for our organization: Global Giving performs a thorough audit of  organizations' track records and financial practices before accepting them.

We're especially excited that our new partnership with Global Giving is funding a new stage for love.fútbol - our expansion into Brazil. love.fútbol team member Mano Silva is spearheading our Brazil operations from his hometown of Recife and overseeing the preliminary phases of our first project there. love.fútbol has tremendous support from the soccer-passionate people of Brazil as they prepare to host the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics. We're hugely excited!

We want to say thank you again to everyone who participated in our Global Giving campaign. We couldn't have done it without you! Thank you for being part of our success!

Abrazos!

The love.fútbol team
