Helping People Through Fun and Food
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 and the world’s #1 soccer mom, our mission is to take soccer balls, food, and the hope of the Gospel to underprivileged 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!
For every #GFB soccer ball purchased, one soccer ball and one meal will be donated to a child in need. While soccer balls and meals contribute greatly to the children’s physical needs, the two are just avenues used to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with children around the world. It is our belief that you must take care of the physical needs of people before you can satisfy their spiritual needs. Once you have Jesus, however, you have everything you need.
We gained inspiration for Goals For Bowls from the TOMs Shoes one-for-one concept. However, even though we say we give one meal, with your help and donations we give far more than just one meal for every soccer ball sold. For example, on our past trip to Ghana we took 24 soccer balls and fed over 350 children in an orphanage in Kumasi, Ghana and at a Bible Club in the rural village of Duampopo, Ghana. With your help we can truly make a difference for children all around the world!
