VIPL player reaches out to young soccer players in Columbia
At Christmas, U16B Storm player Juan Rubiano made an impressive donation to soccer-loving kids in Columbia. In the words of Jaun's dad:
Hello everyone, my name is Javier- I am Juan's Father. I just want to share with you what my son and his big heart did this Christmas. These 15 poor children in Colombia South America received a gift from Juan for them to have a happy Christmas. Juan worked all summer and saved money to make these gifts possible for the children- soccer balls and jerseys. For Juan the best present for this Christmas is to see these children happy and he said he is going to work more so he can put more smiles on children's faces next year. We're proud of you son and your good heart !
