At Futbol for Kids we have a vision... to deliver as many soccer balls to underprivileged kids as possible. No kid should be denied the chance to kick a ball about. It's one of life's most simple pleasures. Futbol for Kids also deliver water filters and solar flashlights. Just began working in Honduras but much more in store!
July 10 2015. New York City. Thousands of fans congregated in lower Manhattan on Friday for a Ticker Tape Parade in honor of the US Women's Soccer Team's Fifa win.
