A few months back we had the special opportunity to be a part of Plywood Presents. It was a truly remarkable event. The room was filled with people who are creating change all over the country. There were many great presentations and stories that day, but the one that punched us in the gut was the story of Luma Mufleh and the Fugees Family.

She unknowingly became part of something much bigger than herself and told the story with such humility and such love. A few years back she found herself coaching refugee boys soccer. She then found herself not only a coach to the boys but to their families. Luma has helped create a way for these young men to excel and created hope for their families.

Her story has been optioned to become a film. She’s been featured in media all over the world. It’s become much bigger than just another soccer team. What’s interesting though is how none of this matters to Luma. In her eyes, none of this is worth anything unless it helps her kids. It’s all about them.

Yesterday a few needs were posted on their website. We wanted to share them with you. If there’s anything you or your community can do to help, please do. It’s a great cause.
