Balls for Burundi

Burundi is a small african counrty where my teacher (who loves soccer) visits now every year. Seeing people on the streets who would make soccer balls out of stuff like paper bags frazzled her so she went to the market and bought some soccer balls to pass out. This year she told my class and we wanted to kinda make things better so we started "Balls for Burundi" balls for burundi is where prekindergarten-third grade can join some voulenter 7th graders for an 1 1/2 after school for soccer camp! I participated and it was so much fun! i got a pre-kindergartner: Liam and he would not stop playing with his hands so that made him goalle most of the time:) i also got three kinders: Wesley, Daniel, and Bo:) they were all really good for 5 and 6 year olds. the camp runs today and thurday and for each session (day) its 10 dollars. so far we reached 350-400! ms. dempsey had emily take some pictures and ill try to get them soon!
Thanks for reading.
