World Cup Donations: Get Involved! - 7/7

Dominique Haller

On today's show, we had the great pleasure to talk about the World Cup in South Africa with South African native and Madison resident Raymond Kessel, Professor Emeritus at UW-Madison and co-owner of the Calabash Gift Store in Madison.

With his wife Leah, who runs the Calabash gift store, he initiated the Soccer Gear for Africa Campaign in collaboration with the University Wellness Foundation. The campaign collects soccer gear which will then be sent to South Africa for players of all ages. Fontana Sports already donated 60 cleats, and other people have followed their example by donating 90 soccer balls!

If you too would like to donate soccer gear, you can drop off the items at the following locations:

- Calabash Gift Store, 2608 Monroe Street, Madison
- Keva Sports Center, 8312 Forsythia Street, Middleton
- Stefan's Soccer Store, 6620 Odana Road, Madison

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact Raymond Kessel at or by calling the Calabash Gift Store at 608 233 2640.
