Ideas That Matter

For many Americans, this is a hard thing to imagine: Not having a ball. In America, we have bags full of balls, cars full of balls and garages full of balls. They’re stuck on the roof, in a tree, in an attic, in a ditch. We have so many balls we don’t know what to do with them. But Ethan king does.

Ethan King is a 14-year old kid with a vision: To bring soccer balls to those who need them. Anywhere in the world.

In 2009, Ethan visited Mozambique. While his dad worked, he played soccer with local kids from the village. Afterwards, he gave them his ball. And the spirit of Charity Ball was born.
