these numbers have faces.

My friend Matt works with a non profit organization in Portland that has a simple vision to see young people empowered with the right tools to defeat poverty in their own communities. These Numbers Have Faces (TNHF) invests in young South Africans by helping them to develop the skills that they need to become strong leaders in their own communities. Some of the basic ways that they do this are through providing college scholarships, mentoring, financial literacy and other necessary tools to become successful leaders.

As many of you know, South Africa is one of my favorite places on this earth and it's young people hold a very dear place in my heart. You may also know that the World Cup will be held there this year. TNHF recently launched a benefit bracket from which all proceeds will go toward soccer and education programs in the Townships of South Africa.

Visit the These Numbers Have Faces website for more information on how the bracket works and how you can be directly involved in helping young South Africans reach the potential for which they were created!

Winner(s) will also receive a 20x30 framed print and an exclusive copy of "A Beautiful Game: Football Through The Eyes Of The World's Greatest Players."
