Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on September 21, a day devoted to peace within and among all nations and peoples. This year’s theme is Education for Peace, focusing on the role that education can play on fostering global citizenship.
Join One World Futbol in celebrating Peace Day by taking part in their campaign to generate ball donations for the Peres Center for Peace. Through their new Instagram channel (@oneworldfutbol), you can help them bring the power of play to youth living in Israel, Palestine and neighboring countries.
Here’s how it works:
- Take a photo or short 15-second video with you, your friends, family or pets playing with the One World Futbol – or if you don’t already have one, then any soccer ball will do.
- Post your photo or video on Instagram and tag it with #oneworldfutbol and #peaceday (or you can just tag @oneworldfutbol).
- One World Futbol will track the photo and video posts starting September 17 through the end of Peace Day, September 21. For each photo and video tagged with #oneworldfutbol and #peaceday (or@oneworldfutbol), they’ll donate a One World Futbol to the Peres Center for Peace (up to 500 balls).
Give More One World Futbols
You can help even further by donating additional One World Futbols. Purchase a ball for yourself through One World Futbol’s “Buy One Give One” option, and they will donate a second one on your behalf to the Peres Center for Peace. Or, if you don’t need a ball, you can use the “Give One” option to just donate a ball directly.
About the Peres Center for Peace
The Peres Center for Peace works to promote peacebuilding between Israel and its Arab neighbors, particularly between Israelis and Palestinians, as well as between Jewish and Arab citizens of Israel.
The Center’s programs empower participants to be actively engaged in peacebuilding in order to advance the creation of a real, effective and durable peace. Their programs take place in fields such as medicine, sports, agriculture, the environment, business, education, youth, technology, the arts, and more.
About One World Futbol
One World Futbol’s mission is to make it possible for anyone, anywhere, in any community to play soccer with a ball that matches the endurance of the sport.
The One World Futbol requires no pump and will never go flat even if punctured. The ball is made using state-of-the-art technology that requires no stitching and is designed to have the same rebound characteristics as a traditional soccer ball. It’s the same size and weight as a standard soccer ball, but it can also be used for netball, volleyball, and many other games.
