I recently came across an article in the Contra Costa Times about a soccer fundraising initiative called FUNDaFIELD. The mission of this charitable organization is to raise money to build soccer fields in impoverished parts of Africa. What really impressed me most about the article were the people were behind this effort. Garrett and Kyle Weiss started this initiative shortly after the 2006 World Cup when they were in high school. Their goal was to raise $100,000.
The Contra Costa Times article announce they had just reached this goal. However, the Weiss brothers and their ever-growing Team plan on continuing this initiative.
Congratulations FUNDaFIELD on reaching this important milestone. May it be the first of many.
