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.

“What Children say” by Pequeños Grandes Mundos

“There are things I do not know how to explain, so I draw them”

Malena lives in Kyoto and she was 7 years old when Mey and Ivanke met her. They asked her what she felt when she was drawing and this is exactly what she replied.

Today her words are part of “What children say”, a series of illustrations that fund the work of the non-profit organisation “Pequeños Grandes Mundos” (little big worlds) Read more

How to put a Whale into a suitcase. – The story of a refugee

If tomorrow you have to leave your home and never come back, if you knew that whatever you choose, you’ll have to carry yourself and that it will go with you whenever you happen to go, what will you put in your suitcase?

That is the question that millions of refugees asked themselves everyday before leaving their previous life, the same question that begins the story that we talk about today. A perfect Christmas present:  Como meter una ballena en una Maleta  (How to put a Whale into a suitcase)

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?

International Asperger Syndrome Day

Do you remember how you felt the first time you saw a negative number or a derivative? How your brain tried to understand what it was about, to find a use for something so strange, so “useless” and difficult to understand?

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

BOOKS TO EXPLAIN THE REFUGEE CRISIS TO CHILDREN

I know that Christmas is here and in this side of the world,  Christmas is a time for children, a time for magic and presents. But it is also a time for family, a time to share, to care for others and my heart cannot stand any more what is going on out there.

I feel the need to explain my sons what is happening, but they are only little children and I have to admit that I do not know how and, the most important issue, where to put the limits.

So today, I bring a bunch of books that can help me, and you, to introduce this horrendous crisis to little children. Because through education and information we can help our children to build a better tomorrow for them and for the children to come.

CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS FOR LITTLE STARS

If there is something that we want to teach our children is that there are other realities out there: children not so lucky or happy as they are. And we want to show them that helping is nice and even fun sometimes.

What if we told you that with a little craft you can make happy a child, or more,  in Christmas Eve?

MORE SUPERSHADOWS – Jason Ratliff

We introduced you Jason Ratliff and his Supershadow art some time ago. We loved the idea of children meeting their inner Superhero in their own shadows. Magic!

Now Jason Ratliff is launching a second series of SuperShadows with a little twist. The artwork will hang at a children’s medical center and he wants to transmite little ones the idea that the impossible is possible.

On top of that, he will donate 50% of the proceeds to Cook Children’s Medical Center in Ft. Worth, TX during the first 48 hours of the series launch, starting today at noon.

HAPPY MAN – Until it will be stopped, we will continue

There are beautiful projects that are born after sad, tough and complicated moments. HAPPY MAN – #1motivomilrazones (1 motive, 1000 reasons) is one of them.

Mateo is the  1 motive. A little warrior that with only 1 month was diagnosed with leukemia, the most typical type of children cancer.

The 1000 reasons, sadly many more, are the approximately number of little superheroes that are diagnosed with the disease every year in Spain.

#1motivomilrazones is a charity project that supports the research and the fight against leukemia, through the best way their founders know: their story, strength and the memories of their HAPPY MAN.
