    Hi Marcie,

    I received your contact information from Sven Johnston at GigaSavvy – we are both board members of a local nonprofit called Pure Game. We are trying to create awareness about the amazing impact Pure Game has throughout the community and I thought I’d reach out to see if you could help us create awareness.

    Pure Game uses soccer as a vehicle to provide character education, leadership coaching and mentoring to disadvantaged children and teens throughout Orange County. The mission of Pure Game is to provide positive mentors who champion the development of a child’s self-esteem and confidence, inspiring them to believe in themselves and the possibilities of a better life. Pure Game’s youth development programs combat countywide issues including high school dropout rates, poor academic achievement, behavioral programs, cultural barriers, drug issues, gang violence, incarceration and violent crimes.

    One fun and easy way for people to get involved is though the organization’s Encouragement Ball campaign where people can purchase a soccer ball, write encouraging words on it and then give it to Pure Game to distribute to a disadvantaged child when they have demonstrated positive character traits. If people purchase the soccer ball from Pure Game, it also helps sponsor a child for a month.

    Would you be interested in coming out to the field or talking to the founder?
