We offer our thanks for the generous donations raised by soccer player and enthusiast Tim Wagner, of Berkeley, California. Tim raised $460 for Eric's Goal in addition to collecting used equipment (shin guards, jerseys and balls) from his soccer buddies. I'm sure the Iraqi children will put the equipment to good use. The monies will be used to pay for postage and to buy more equipment.
Here are some pictures of Tim playing pickup soccer, on the beach no less! Tim is the one holding the ball in the team photo.
Tim learned of Eric's Goal through Eric's brother-in-law Kevin, who was on one of the pickup teams on which Tim plays. Tim continues to make efforts to collect donations for Eric's Goal. His enthusiasm has been inspiring to us!
