PS2G is a Local Game for Global Change based in NYC. Our mission is to restore dignity and encourage generosity through soccer.

How: 
By creating a safe, supportive and generous adult pickup soccer culture 
By helping soccer charities tell their stories and raise funds through soccer

The tendency is for unorganized pickup games to become hostile environments that breed disagreeable behavior. Our goal is to encourage positivity, safety and generosity. We are creating positive social change amongst our supporters in addition to our charity partners.

We start each game with a few words about the power of giving and encourage safe and supportive play. We cheer when nobody else is cheering. Together, we are perfecting the art of pickup soccer by creating generous environments where all good things can flourish

So far we have: 
Raised funds and awareness for 10 charities 
Organized 1,300 fundraising pickup games 
Granted $22,848 since 2010 from local pickup games ($10,000 in 2014 alone) 
Encouraged generosity to 2,300 adult players 
Trained 40 community game leaders 
Directed 2 “soccer for social good” documentaries
