“Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” Isaiah 6:8
At the Goals For Bowls Foundation (“#GFB”), we believe that one person truly can make a difference in this world. Founded in October 2016 by a former Texas A&M soccer player, our mission is to take soccer balls and provide vital resources to children in need all over the world. To date, we have donated over 160 new #GFB soccer balls and have provided over 17,500 meals to impoverished children on five mission trips to four countries!
Where do you come in? As a 501c3 nonprofit charity, we were founded on the 1 -for-1 Model. For every #GFB soccer ball purchased, we donate a soccer ball and a meal to a child in need on one of our many international mission trips. However, with kind monetary donations, we are able to provide thousands of meals to children in orphanages, schools, community centers, churches, and poor rural villages. 100% of ALL funds received go directly to helping children!
In addition to meals, #GFB has expanded to provide medicine, water systems, and Bibles to children in need. Led by their faith, Sarah & Susan (Mama Shaw aka the real “MVP”) use these vital resources as physical avenues to reach people who are also “hungry” and “thirsty” for the Gospel. In Luke 4:4 “Jesus answered, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone’.” Psalm 107:9 states that “He satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” And that is what we at the Goals For Bowls Foundation try to do – provide meals, water, medicine, and soccer balls to children in need in order to satisfy their spiritual needs as well.
We live to make a difference – will you help us make a lasting impact on poor children all over the world?
“Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the Kingdom of God.
Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied.
Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.”
