This posts sits outside the realm of soccer cleats – yet it is a very important one for me! My wife, who is a 1st grade teacher at an inner city charter school in Los Angeles, has a “Donors Choose” proposal currently running, where she is looking to raise money to buy sports equipment for the playground at her school. The school playground is actually a parking lot, and the kids really don’t have any equipment to use. SoccerCleats101 recently donated a bunch of soccer balls (which the kids love) but now I am reaching out to my trusty readers in order to help her reach her goal of $1,180.
Check out the proposal here – I understand a lot of readers won’t be able to donate, but do me a favor and share it with friends on Facebook in case there is someone who can give!
Through today, May 8th, all donations will be matched thanks to the Starbucks – if you enter MORNINGJOE at checkout, your donation will be doubled.
And finally, in an attempt to bribe you guys, I will run a giveaway with several pairs of boots this weekend if there is a solid response!!
Thanks for your support!
