Need: Non-profits in South Africa (as well as football fans!)


Though what follows does combine a few of my favorite things: meeting people from around the world and non-profit, social-justice work for change, it also involves football (soccer) and beer. (I love watching soccer errr.. football, but have no hand-foot coordination, as my many bruises and falls on the basketball court attest. And there are very few gluten-free beers, so that's off my list.)

However, I've begun a job casting for a reality web series called "Bud House." ( It promises to be super fun, and a great opportunity for a die-hard football fan. Sponsored by Budweiser, thus the beer component, Bud House is sending a representative (crazy, football / soccer loving fan) from each of the 32 countries represented at the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ on an all-expense paid adventure to Cape Town, South Africa. Luxurious accommodations, thrilling excursions, and the opportunity to have the kind of access few fans ever have.

And on the even more positive side, some of the "thrilling excursions" mentioned include volunteering with local, South African non-profits.

So if you're from one of the 32 countries competing in the World Cup and are interested in applying for the series, go to to learn more and download the form. Please pass along to your friends and family, especially that one woman/man who won't show up to family functions if there's a match on.

And if you have a non-profit for the show to consider, thus receiving more exposure to the world, comment here and I'll pass on your information to my colleague Lauren.

Go (insert country's team name here)! And cheers to raising more awareness for non-profits in South Africa.
