"Playing soccer gives children time to feel good and experience joy, to bond with teammates, and to be healthy in unhealthy circumstances. The "beautiful game" builds self-esteem and teaches them to treat each other with respect."
When Lisa and I started the One World Futbol Project, we knew we had the opportunity to create a business that could bring joy to millions of children around the world -- with something as simple as an ultra-durable ball.
It seems like no matter how difficult the circumstances, people around the world still find a way to play. Play is a critical part of rebuilding lives, resolving conflict and keeping your sanity in the midst of chaos.
The simple fact is that there is an "I" in this team of ours. I am nothing without the team, and they wouldn't be my teammates if it wasn't for the idea of an ultra-durable ball which brought us all together.
Inside this crew, there's a core group of folks that are determined to take this quiet competence and use it to contribute to solving bigger problems -- all while being ready for sound check at 4:00 p.m.
