On August 8th’s a fundraising event titled ‘Just for Kicks’ will be held in Toronto to support the building of a football (soccer) field in Brazil’s Recife province. The money is going to Love.Fútbol’s Field of Hope project, which will build a real field to benefit the thousands of neighborhood children who currently play football in unsafe and unsanitary conditions. This is also part of a larger effort to build 30 football fields for youths across Brazil by 2014.
