Jacquie’s Norway Player Fundraising Page


Dear Family, Friends, Colleagues, Teammates, Neighbors and New Fans: We would LOVE your support in our effort to increase awareness of senior women athletes and of the United Nations Global Goals of gender equality (Goal 5), inclusion (Goal 10), and health and wellness (Goal 3). Fundraising will offset player trip costs and can also be designated to help with the beautiful photography and marketing needed for worldwide media coverage. We are offering a thank you gift with each $20 or larger fundraising contribution–such as a photo print of our squad on the *most awesome field* or another customized souvenir. We thank you in advance for following and sharing our story on social media! -The San Diego Soccer Women Global Goals Team in Norway 2018
