Together with startnext, we have started a crowdfunding page to give projects the opportunity to finance and spread their good idea in the world. The focus is on social projects that use football to support children and adolescents. We begin with “The Twinned Peace Soccer Schools” in Israel and the “El Monte Soccer for Success” program in the United States.
The first two projects that are presented on our crowdfunding Page on startnext are in connection with the social commitment of the German Football Ambassador nominees Michael Nees and Jürgen Klinsmann.
Started in 2002 by the Peres Center for Peace, “The Twinned Peace Soccer Schools” project is committed to a peaceful solution of the Middle East conflict. With the help of football, children and young people of partner communities along the Israeli-Palestinian border should break down social barriers and prejudices that have arisen in the past by political, ethnic and religious differences.
The 2012 started US-project “El Monte Soccer for Success” is trying to use football as a fun and efficient way to inspire overweight children for sporting activities. By increasing their strength, agility and endurance, while teaching them a healthy nutritional education, their overall health should be improved.
Startnext is the largest crowdfunding community for creative ideas in Germany. Artists, designers, inventors and founders present their ideas on startnext and fund them with the direct support of many people.
