Blogathon: Overcoming adversity through football


Two days now until the Scottish Football Blog Blogathon.

Why am I doing it?

To try and help, even in a small way, great organisations like the Homeless World Cup. My own little contribution to beating homelessness through football.

Inspired by stories like Lisa's. Street soccer helped Lisa overcome her addictions. And she's moved on to give something back: at the 2011 Homeless World Cup she was coach of the US women's team.

An individual triumph over adversity. The Homeless World Cup inspires similar stories in over 70 countries every single day.
