Change agent: Ignite F.C. - World Vision

By World Vision JAMES ADDIS - Crossmap On May 1, 2013

Name: Ignite F.C.
Home: Bothell, Wash.
Occupation: Soccer
Program: Gift Catalog

The Buzz: The boys who play for Ignite F.C. have a special reason to celebrate every time they score a goal. Each time they do, supporters pass a can among their fans to solicit a contribution to the players’ favorite charities. The initials F.C. actually stand for “For Christ,” rather than the traditional “Football Club.” Last season, Ignite F.C. scored 24 goals, which helped team members raise $219 to purchase Bibles, chickens, and soccer balls through the World Vision Gift Catalog. The items were sent to help families in developing countries. Sweeper Xander Wood, 11, nominated World Vision after his family began sponsoring Keketso Khopho, a child who lives in Lesotho in southern Africa. Xander considers Keketso part of his family and prays for him every night.
