Good Cause Alert: Gay4Soccer’s You Can Play World Cup 2014 Fundraiser

13 May

you-can-playAwesome blog Gay4Soccer is doing a fantastic fundraiser for a wonderful & important organization, the You Can Play Project.

For those not familiar with the work of the You Can Play Project, here’s their mission statement:

You Can Play is dedicated to ensuring equality, respect and safety for all athletes, without regard to sexual orientation.

You Can Play works to guarantee that athletes are given a fair opportunity to compete, judged by other athletes and fans alike, only by what they contribute to the sport or their team’s success.

You Can Play seeks to challenge the culture of locker rooms and spectator areas by focusing only on an athlete’s skills, work ethic and competitive spirit.

Good and necessary work! So about that fundraiser: Gay4Soccer has challenged footy fans to pledge a dollar amount for each goal that the United States Men’s National Team scores between May 27 and the end of World Cup2014 with all the proceeds going to the You Can Play Project. You can get all the details here and make your pledge. I’ve already made mine – let’s get out there and raise some money for a really important cause!
