Homeless World Cup

The Homeless World Cup is pretty much what it sounds like: homeless people all over the world organize soccer/football/futeball teams, then come together for a long championship, with thousands of people attending some of the best football you'll see all year. The act of organizing a football team and participating it appears to be tonic for many of the problems facing homeless people, with more than 70 percent of the participants getting off the streets in the process of forming and honing their teams. The Cup is now sponsoring street-soccer leagues for homeless people all over the world as a way of making the event work all year round. Link
