I would like to introduce you to my friend Sam. I meet Sam at Mzoli’s in Gugulethu about 2 years ago.
He performs there at the weekends as Freestyle Football Juggler.
“Freestyle football, also known as freestyle soccer in North America, is the art of expressing yourself with a football, while performing various tricks with any part of the body. Similar in style to keepie uppie, kemari and the ball discipline of rhythmic gymnastics, it has become a widespread sport across the world and is practised by many people.”
Watching Sam as a street performer will leave you speechless when you see him doing his fancy footwork. He is really talented.
Now here is where you can help him. He recently got an invite to a bigger tournament in Johannesburg, but can not afford the travel costs.
We at Cape Town Active would love to see some people donating to make him go and win the tournament and start his dream to become a professional performer.
Help us here please. You can reach Sam at 071 484 8896 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We are sure Sam will find a way to thank you for your donation, even if it is only a honest “sharp- sharp!”
Please some photos of Sam in action below.
