homeless world cup
(Top: from schwabfound.org; Bottom: in-kick.org)
I had never heard of this before today, but it seems like a positive plan: sending teams of homeless people to their own World Cup in order to raise money from fans to "Kick off Poverty." The current Homeless World Cup is going on now in Cape Town, South Africa - the country that is to host the official 2010 FIFA World Cup. Combining football and charity - now there's a great idea!
Here is a news story about the current cup with stories and photos.
The Homeless World Cup also has an official site, homelessworldcup.org.
