VamosMorados.com POTY Charity Campaign Results
At the end of October, VamosMorados.com pledged to help raise funds for a charity selected by the fan-chosen player of the year. The winner, Cameron Lancaster, selected the Coalition for the Homeless. Leveraging the power of social media, this charitable campaign spread and greatly exceeded my expectations. Today, the full $1,036 raised was provided to the Coalition for the Homeless. The amount of good within the Louisville City soccer community is incredible. I’m truly in awe. When putting this together, I thought $200-$300 would have been a big win. Breaking the $1,000 threshold was not on my radar.
To everyone who donated and helped to spread the word; thank you. I wanted to make charity a priority with VamosMorados.com because I believed in the Lou City/ Racing Lou community. I knew the community was and could continue to be a charitable force for good. The outcome of this first effort proved me right.
I have many more ideas, so stay tuned. I have set a new charity page on the site as a one-stop-shop for all initiatives, both past and present. In the meantime, enjoy the holiday season. Stay safe out there. I look forward to seeing everyone again at Lynn Family Stadium cheering on the guys in purple and the gals in lavender!
