Throughout the Caribbean and Latin America (and here in sunny South Florida), you will find world class athletes in many sports like soccer, baseball, cricket, swimming, track & field and many others. If there’s a sport that’s played in warm weather, chances are people in our part of the world excel at it.
But “cold weather” sports? Snow and ice? That’s not really our thing.
Or is it?
We at Food For The Poor are proud to support our brothers and sisters in Jamaica, Dominica and Mexico, as they send athletes to compete in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games! In addition to TEAM USA, we are rooting for the Jamaican bobsled team, as well as the skiers who are representing Dominica and Mexico.
While we’ll all enjoy watching the spectacle of the Games, we also hope they will serve as a reminder of the tremendous potential inside every human being. When you do things like sponsor an orphan, provide instruments for a marching band, support a school, or help start a micro-enterprise initiative, you are giving people an opportunity to achieve their full potential. Your generosity can pave the way for future teachers, scientists, presidents, engineers… or maybe even a future Gold Medalist!
