There’s no doubt about it: kids learn life lessons from the sports they play. Every day they kick, hit, run, jump, swim and swing their way into learning about good values on fields, courts, rinks and in pools and gyms across the country.
Which is why Soccer Sisters wants to challenge young athletes to take part in the Play It Forward Project (#playitforwardproject), to bring those character-building lessons from the sports field into their communities.
The PIFP social media campaign encourages kids to find creative ways of extending what they learn in competition into daily life by committing and sharing random acts of kindness and passing on the challenge to their friends and teammates.
Engage in your act of kindness, take a picture, and ‘play it forward’ by sharing it on social media and tagging friends to share their own act of kindness and keep it going. Do it on your own, with your teammates, or with anyone at all – everyone is welcome and no good deed is too small!
Just be sure to use the #playitforwardproject #soccersisters hashtags.
Already volunteering, doing community service or otherwise being kind? Great! Join in on the fun by sharing it and asking your friends, teammates, parents, teachers and coaches to rise to the challenge.
Our goal is to reach 10,000 acts of kindness, so ‘play it forward’ with us and show the world what you’ve learned about compassion, teamwork, respect, honesty and responsibility. When we are kind, incredible things happen!
