When I traveled the world, I was struck by how kids were always playing soccer with whatever they could find, beer cans were common. So, I see this as a worthwhile project that can do a lot of good.
The story on Yanks Abroad tells how an American has come up an indestructible soccer ball. He, with the backing of celebrities like Sting, are giving the ball away to kids.
“In that moment, all doubt and fear about our decision to pursue this idea evaporated,” he said. “Those first prototypes actually bounced so much better than the rag balls or wads of trash, boxes, bottles, cans and the rocks that not just millions, but hundreds of millions of children use to play with every day. We were all excited and moved forward.”
