THE PASS-A-BALL PROJECT

PASS-A-BALL-PROJECT-PARK-BALL-SOCCER-NGO-CUTEANDKIDS-BLOG

Most boys I know play football, they love football, football is almost their religion, their true passion. And many girls too. After discovering this socially conscious project: PASS-A-BALL PROJECT, I understood that soccer can change the world in other different ways that those we actually know.

Soccer has become very commercial, and to some degree has lost its soul. Observing how disadvantaged communities embrace the game, Sam Davy and Tara Montoneri were inspired to rethink the role of the humble ball. After all, it’s the ball that’s at the centre of the game.

BORN TO BE EXTRAORDINARY .-Supporting Premature Babies

I spent most of my last pregnancy laying in bed. My baby was eager to see the world and we were known visitors in the Emergency Room, trying to convince him that patience is a virtue and that he had plenty of time to enjoy life. We were lucky and at the end, we almost had to encourage him as he was born 10 days after his due date.

Unfortunately, not every baby can spend all the time needed in his mum’s belly. In Spain,  every year 7,5% of babies are born premature, this means 28.000 babies in need of special care and treatments in order to survive.

What if I tell you that there is a way to help them during those tough months when they are fighting to survive? Do you want to help?

I tend to think that this is how a person with Asperger Syndrome feels like every time a new social interaction come across. Read more
