“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
James 1:27

Buzz and Jesses Drive

We have started collecting soccer cleats and shin guards (buzz and jesses as they call them in Liberia) for the children that will live at the orphanage. I am also collecting soccer balls, soccer socks, and jerseys. Please email Kami at bluecowgirl@yahoo.com if you have some that you'd like to donate. We hope to ship them over with the building. Here is a letter that the children wrote asking for soccer gear.

Thanks to the Fort Collins Soccer Club and other generous families in the area for donating items. We are going to continue collecting items so email Kami if you'd like to donate.

Thanks to Liffeys Pearse F.C.! This football (soccer) club in Dublin, Ireland is donating equipment kits containing jerseys, shorts, socks and balls and shipping them straight to Liberia! This club started as just a schoolboy club but found that when kids finished their schoolboy football (at age 18) they weren’t continuing onto junior\senior football and were just giving up. The area that these kids come from is inner city Dublin and renowned for criminal and drug activity. They now help young men continue playing football in senior level clubs.
