NEW SOCCER BALL COMPANY SEEKS TO CHANGE THE GAME:
Buy One, Give One Concept Turns Customers into Benefactors
Pass It Forward, LLC, is an organization that provides environmentally friendly soccer equipment to children in need around the world through a ‘Pay It Forward’ approach. We are committed to the global soccer community by sharing the passion of soccer and providing an opportunity for others to give back. When you buy one of our match quality soccer balls, another is donated to a child in need both within the United States and worldwide. We accept orders online and they will also be available at various retail stores and tournaments in the very near future.
Pass It Forward was founded by two people -- a soccer professional and a teacher -- who were seeking a way to combine soccer and social consciousness. While you don't need much to play soccer, millions of children around the world do not have the means to participate in this. From disadvantaged kids in Africa who make their own soccer balls out of trash bags and twine, to sports clubs in the United States struggling to buy acceptable equipment, it is clear that there is a need to make soccer equipment more readily available. That's where Pass It Forward, with your help, seeks to make a difference.
So, why soccer? Soccer is the world’s most popular sport, with followers around the globe who all share the same passion. All you need for a game is one ball, and anyone can participate. But soccer is more than a game; it extends far beyond training players to shoot, pass and defend. Soccer instills lifelong lessons of teamwork, leadership, concentration, endurance and good sportsmanship. It promotes cultural identity and pride, as many cities and countries around the world have local and national teams. Moreover, since soccer is a universal sport, many organizations around the world have started using soccer as a peace-building activity. It's also an excellent way to stay healthy and keep active. Pass It Forward firmly believes that every child deserves these benefits, and we are committed to giving each one an opportunity to do so.
Our first planned donations are to children in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and Passback, a program for children in under-resourced urban communities. Join our cause, spread the word and buy a ball. Be a game changer.
