Soccer and a good cause

So one of my good friends who played soccer at Wake Forest, Michael Lahoud, now plays in the MLS for Chivas USA. He told me about a really awesome thing they are doing for their season home opener this year:

He and Chivas USA are joining efforts with Schools For Salone to help rebuild schools in his home country, Sierra Leone. Schools For Salone is a non-profit organization committed to helping Sierra Leoneans rebuild many of the rural schools that were destroyed during the horrific ten year civil war, ending in 2002. He is proud to be a native of Sierra Leone and has always felt a calling to help the many people in need. With your help we can get a step closer to not only rebuilding schools but also creating new hope for the less fortunate people of Sierra Leone. Please join him on Saturday, March 19, as Chivas USA hosts Sporting KC for the Home Opener.

For more information on how to help or donate please visit Ticket proceeds from this website will be going to Schools For Salone.

This is a really good cause and it will be a great game of soccer to watch! If you are in the area I encourage you to take this opportunity to go to an MLS game!!
