I like businesses who supports sports especially for youths and kids. as part of its corporate responsibility and social service. "Just for Kicks" is a regional YKK (zipper industry leader) project of YKK to support healthy growth of children through sports. So that everyone can enjoy the sports regardless of religion, culture and nationality.
Football is chosen to be the most ideal activity for diversified cultures. Lunched in SG in 2007 clinics been help to various countries like Bangladesh 2008, India and Vietnam 2009, Bangladesh and Indonesia in 2010. And now in the Philippines prior to Thailand and Sri Lanka last year.
In April 13-15 at Ayala Country club in Alabang, Muntinlupa. 250 kids some of them came from the poorest of the poor. During press-con they old us that its around 143 told by the Don Bosco Fathers. Will be coached by Real Madrid FC mentors Jaime Torcal Cano, Ivan Garcia Sacristan and Pablo Gomez. Imported from Spain and been to great football like fifa, world cup and Olympics. Kids ages from 7-15 will be mentored by this coaches and former European pro players. Who knows this kids would be the next College Varsity, Beckham, Azkals, Ronaldihno, Kaka, Messi or Ronaldo.
Frances Laurel CEO of YKK Philippines were also present on the press-con and officials from Japan. Also they have translators for media's because coaches speak some coaches from Europe Spanish. Also Philippine Football Chief Nonong Araneta said "This is the big boost for the support for kids to be trained by high caliber coaches from Europe".
YKK executives told us about the cycle of Goodness. Which means we must help each other and render good services to one another. Because you cannot enrich yourself if you can't help them-others. Same as with YKK to its partners and employees as well as when you are helping this kids. You are building up good community service.
