Sides have been chosen and the battles have begun! Cheers are heard throughout the countryside as one team or another scores a GOAL! I recently was talking to someone on the phone and could not hear them for yelling and screaming in the background. When I asked her where she was, she said at her house but the community was outside watching a TV and they were cheering the game!
Haitian are fierce about their teams too! Cars have the flags of their favorite teams attached to the windows of their cars and honk horns when goals are scored or a team wins. Sometimes if you go to a government office when a favorite team such as Brazil is playing, you have to wait a long time for someone to wait on you. We are talking SERIOUS World Cup Fever!
Well, we have World Cup Fever at God's Littlest Angels too! We are trying to raise $30,000 and relating the amount to 30,000 goals kicked for the children at the orphanage. We have received close to $10,000 so far. We are getting close!
The children are all following how many soccer goals are being kicked for them. So please send a donation today!
