USA v England World Cup!

From: Elena P.
Sent on: Wednesday, June 9, 2010 12:39 AM
Our first meetup of the World Cup!!!

One of the biggest matchups of the group stages will be conveniently played on Saturday at 2:30 pm, so there is no need to motivate anyone to show up! This is Team USA chance to get revenge on the BP boys! Show up a little early, 'cause I suspect it will be a full house!

Our PA Madridista of the Year, Jamie, asked me to forward this message to you regarding a small but important contribution:

Dr. Weiss, one of the docs we work with goes to rural parts of South Africa every year. He always sees kids playing soccer with balls they've made themselves out of rags or other things. What he's started doing is taking some balls over with him, reinflating them, and then giving them out to kids he sees. Last year, it was a huge success and the kids loved it.

So, if anyone happens to have any extra soccer balls laying around (don't go out and buy anything) and you want them to go to Africa, bring them to the meetup and we'll make sure he gets them before he leaves next week.

Thanks everyone in advance,
See ya Saturday!
Jamie.
