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
