A big thank you to Coach Mike and First Coast Soccer players for donations for my 5 soccer projects in Jamaica! Before leaving on a recent personal vaceation, I shipped 9 boxes to Jamaica. Soccer shoes and t-shirts went to the Barbaras Village soccer team, coaches bags and socks went to the FFP soccer team, soccer shoes and soccer goals went to the Celebration of Life School, soccer shoes went to the Steph's Place Schools, and soccer shoes, uniforms, shin guards and socks wernt to Ellersie Soccer Complex. Running shoes for Barbaras Village runners was donated by a local runner and science books were donated by a local tutor. These gifts came from the heart as individuals shared the tools of a common passion, with the poor. We are all actually more alike than we are different. If you love to run, sing, play an instrument, plant a garden, learn, read, you could be one of many of us. If you smile, dance, hug, believe in family and have faith, you are my soul mates, no matter where you live in the world. These are the traits of the poor I call family in Jamaica.
