When the Ice Bucket Becomes a Soccer Ball
Over the last two months millions of people have used an ice bucket to spread awareness via social media. Let’s keep this amazing momentum going using a soccer ball and your skills!
We are challenging the soccer world, our staff, partners, friends, and supporters to show off their juggling skills and participate in our Juggles Across Continents Challenge. All you need is a soccer ball, a camera, and the will to help us spread the word about what is happening on Peace Day, 21 September.
A United Nations recognized day dedicated to world peace since 1981, Peace Day presents an opportunity for us all to take a stand as citizens of the world. CAC has teamed up with Peace One Day to use soccer as a tool to educate underserved communities across the globe about problem solving, peace building, and gender equality. Organizations from over 100 countries will receive our free resource packet of sport for social impact games that teach children about these important social issues. And with a simple 30-second video, you can be part of this game-changing, international movement.
So let’s make this happen. Replace that ice bucket with a soccer ball, see if you can juggle 9 times or more, then challenge 9 friends to do the same in the next 27 hours or donate $27 to http://www.firstgiving.com/
All proceeds from this campaign will be used to help us provide hundreds of groups with our sport for social impact resource to play with millions of children on Peace Day.
With so many wars and massacres in the news, if ever the world needed to learn about peace, it’s now……So get juggling!
