Not so long ago, Tim Jahnigen invented the most durable soccer ball ever. One that would not need pumping, ever go flat, and could be unaffected by the worst environmental conditions. That’s almost 2 years of hard work, dedication and perseverance brought to perfection.
All this, inspired by a documentary on refugees in Darfur who were playing soccer with a ball made of trash and twine.
A brilliant idea.!

At $39.50, you get an all-terrain soccer ball, and one is donated by way of their non-profit outfit.
Imagine a generation of people in a war-torn region dropping their guns to play a game of soccer instead.
That would be a step towards hope. A step towards peace.
Lets hope the ‘One World Futbol’ is a big step in that direction.!
