The Beautiful Game: It’s Not Really About “On” The Pitch

The Beautiful Game series explores how soccer makes a difference around the globe.

Been a very emotional week here at TSG and we are tardy in following up on our The Beautiful Game series.

Good news this month….the super touching Freddy Fund is about to break ground on their field–that story…is…amazing.

A phenomenal video below done to support youth soccer by Nick Butler, an 18 year old who attends West Hills Community College in Lemoore, CA.

Below that, a list of fine charities. Click around, donate, “like” their Facebook pages.

They are all truly…transformative.
