• Spread Holiday Cheer, Win Cool Gear

    November 23rd 2016. It is that time of year again: the holidays are upon us. This year, why not spread the holiday cheer to a community in need and give the gift of real social impact? This year, Coaches Across Continents is excited to launch our holiday fundraising campaign, Spread Holiday Cheer, Win Cool Gear.

    The money we raise, and the funds you donate, will go towards our programs in Haiti in January, 2017.  After yet another devastating hurricane that killed many people and destroyed many schools, Haitian children are at a significant disadvantage. Can you imagine what it would be like if you lost a family member or your child had was left without an education? Think of how your world would change and how an entire generation’s future would be at risk. Sadly, many families in Haitian community are facing this devastating reality. With the lack of educational structure, there is a glaring need for extra-curricular education such as the kind CAC programs provide.  We are more than ready to step in and use the unifying nature of sport to aid Haiti’s recovery. Our teams will work with 200 coaches and will impact about 5,000 Haitian children.

    By making a donation to Coaches Across Continents through Firstgiving if you are in the USA or Paypal if you prefer between now and December 23rd, you have a special opportunity to contribute to CAC’s mission. Additionally, if you donate $20 or more, you will be entered in to our raffle draw which features our best prizes ever:

  • Help A Community In Need This Christmas

    December 12th 2015. This holiday season Coaches Across Continents is asking you to help youth in at-risk disadvantaged communities all over the world. Throughout December we have been counting down (or up) CAC’s 12 communities of Christmas which you can directly support by making a donation on Firstgiving. Your donations are incredibly important to ensure that children in these communities continue to get the opportunity to learn about vital social messages and have the ability to take ownership of their own choices.

    Sentani, Indonesia, was the 7th CAC community of Christmas. Indonesia has many underserved populations living in remote regions where few international groups offer assistance. Make a donation on this Firstgiving page to directly assist these populations through our work.

    Kathmandu, Nepal was the 1st CAC community of Christmas. Support Kathmandu on this page.

    Diadema, Brazil was the 2nd CAC community of Christmas. Support Diadema on this page.

  • The 1st Day of CAC Christmas

    IMG_0835November 20th 2013. Today is the 1st day of CAC’s 12 day Christmas offer special. Why not head to this page to learn about today’s special offer- donate $50 and a soccer t-shirt will be donated to a community in Colombia. Every day there will be new offers giving you the opportunity to do something different and meaningful this Christmas by donating sports equipment to under served communities across the world. When you make your donation you will be sent a certificate which can be used as a Christmas gift. There will also be days when you can purchase equipment directly to give away as great Christmas gifts.

    IMG_0829

    Rather than giving a book or an ornament which won’t be used why not take advantage of these offers and give someone the pleasure of knowing that they have given communities equipment which will provide fun and pleasure to young people. Please make sure to tell us the name of the person who will be receiving the gift so that we can send it to you. These communities often do not have access to sports equipment such as this making your donation particularly important and meaningful. Equipment such as bags, t-shirts, sports jackets and shorts which are donated by you will be taken to these communities throughout 2014 and given to our local partners who know who need the gear the most.

    IMG_0850A second option as part of the 12 days of Christmas is to purchase the equipment. On certain days you will have the opportunity to buy equipment and give it away as Christmas gifts. Once you make your payment we will be sent your address and will send the equipment out to you on the 10th of December allowing plenty of time for you to get the equipment before Christmas. The equipment is brand new and perfect to be used as sports training gear.

    Don’t forget to keep on checking this page for the next 2 weeks to find out more special Christmas offers!

  • CAC’s ’12 Days of Christmas’ Gifts

Each day of our 12 days of Christmas will propose a new special offer which you can choose to help bring the happiness of play to children globally. In return you will be sent a certificate of appreciation which you can then give to someone as a Christmas present. On certain days there will also be the option to purchase sports equipment to give as a gift on Christmas this year.

    The equipment which you donate, including One World Futbol’s are brand new and will be taken to the communities throughout 2014. This means that you will regularly be able to access information on the donation on our blog, facebook and twitter. The certificate you receive via email can be written in your name or in someone else’s name as a great gift. Furthermore, if you purchase brand new sports equipment it will be shipped to you on December the 10th to ensure that you can then use them as Christmas presents.

    This is a great opportunity to donate to a great cause and provide new equipment to communities who don’t have access to sports gear. Donating is an ideal way to give a meaningful gift and make a difference to under served communities.
