Happy Holidays for Santa Rosa Fire Victims

For our RAGE Leadership Community Service Project, we decided to help the kids of Santa Rosa affected by the wildfires. My three teammates and I sponsored several Angel Trees, one per our four schools, by partnering with the Salvation Army of Santa Rosa. The Angel Tree program puts a child’s gift wish on an Angel Tree Tag. We also invited our whole team to participate by distributing 10 tags per player in addition to our 4 Angel Trees. Friends, family, students, and faculty would come and sign out a tag, or tags, buy the requested gift, and return the tag and gift to the tree unwrapped. We would each gather the collected presents weekly for the majority of December and then, on Thursday, December 14, a parent volunteer had to rent a U-Haul truck to deliver all the gifts we collected to the Salvation Army of Santa Rosa for distribution to the needy children. In the end we were able to spread the holiday spirit to over 800 children!

Soccer without borders

When I was first brainstorming my project to help people one truly popped out in my head. It was to help refugees. I wanted to help the refugees that just came here from  a country in war  I could give them money to help them. The reason why they would need money is because they probably left all their things in their old country and they are really poor now . Therefore, I decided to raise money for them and that is when it all began. I really love baking cakes and baking in general so I decided to go to Walmart and buy all the supplies I needed because I was going to bake to raise money for them.

After I bought the supplies I thought of a few cakes and cookies to make. Then I called up all my friends and asked them what they wanted. All of them bought at least a few cookies and some bought cakes. I was really happy that my friends all helped. Even some of them gave extra money. I was able to raise close to $200 for the refugees.

Now I had to decide which refugee organization I was going to donate the money to. After doing my research, I found the International Refugee Committee in Oakland, California. The IRC provides opportunities for refugees, asylees, victims of human trafficking, survivors of torture and other immigrants to thrive here in the United States. This was the type of organization I wanted to support.  With the help of my parents, we were able to donate the funds to the IRC .

In summary, this was a really exciting project because I got to help people that are in need.

The Rage 05 ECNL WIN!

The Rage 05 ECNL side finished atop a very competitive NorCal Premier league (Region 3/4/5) following a 1-0 win over Santa Rosa United ECNL.  Rage got out to an early lead, beating the SRU back line followed by a beautiful finish within the opening minutes.  Axel Thibodeau’s team staunch defending kept SRU off the board for the remaining 65+ minutes.  The 05s finished 6-0-2 with an astonishing 31-2 goal differential and are off to compete in the always exciting State Cup season.  Good luck girls!
