Since One World Play Project started, 2.2 million balls have been donated to kids and communities in need. According to our estimation, those balls have affected the lives of more than 60 million people. We could not have done this without the incredible dedication displayed by our supporters. We’ve compiled a few of their stories about what they did after buying balls in bulk. We hope they inspire you just as they inspire us!
