April 21 The KKIS Project took people from Speak With Your Feet, a foundation in Los Angeles that provides soccer equipment to underprivileged kids, out to the Cristo Rey school in Playa del Carmen. We have been helping these kids with school supplies for several years. This team of young men have been playing other teams and winning games but had very little equipment and no uniforms. Gayle made an appeal on the internet for a team sponsor and this group responded. They asked for shirt and shoe sizes and showed up with a blue shirt, white shorts, red socks, shin guards, soccer shoes, baseball caps for every member of the team and 8 soccer balls.

Then the Speak With Your Feet team stayed in the late afternoon sun and played a game with the Cristo Rey team on the limestone gravel field and left the game ball inscribed for the boys.
