Merck Consumer Care's Active Family Project has partnered with US Youth Soccer to encourage families to Play For A Change this September. The program promotes being active together as a family through soccer, while also making a positive change in the lives of those less fortunate. This is a natural next step for the Active Family Project's mission of encouraging active family lifestyles.
To celebrate Youth Soccer Month, the Active Family Project will donate a minimum of 75 soccer kits to US Youth Soccer (valued at $15,000 for 75 kits), filled with the equipment needed for kids in under-served communities to play. For every 100 engagements (likes, shares or comments by users) on the Active Family Project Facebook® page, during the month of September, consumers can help enable an additional donation of up to 50 more soccer kits (valued at $10,000 for 50 extra kits).
