NFL & World Vision (Updated)

This last February our students raised over $2000 for world hunger through World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine.

Have you ever wondered what happens to all that gear the gets made for the losing team of a championship? This morning while watching ESPN’s Sportscenter, I saw a piece on what happens to all of that licensed gear that is prepared for the team that DOESN’T win the Super Bowl. For the last 6 years, the NFL has donated all of the prepared gear to World Vision to be distributed to kids in 3rd world countries. Apparently, other leagues and the NCAA are following the NFL’s lead. Later this year, NCAA championship gear featuring the Memphis Tigers will make its way to Romania and other impoverished areas.
