May 6, 2010: Paper Balls

Every day, aid packages are being delivered, in third world countries and disaster zones, to people in need. The packages contain the necessities for survival.
Unplug design, a Korean design firm, thought something more than just necessities would be nice for the children, so they came up with a way the kids can use the packaging to make balls.



Paper balls may not sound very exiting, but...

Quote:
Aid boxes are delivered everyday to third world countries. So Unplug designed a pattern that could be adapted to different shaped aid boxes so once the box is empty of supplies it could be made into a football! A game of football in these areas is often a way for kids to escape their reality of poverty, war and famine. They make their own balls from palm leaves, rope or plastic bags filled with dirt, so Unplugs design certainly makes for a more comfortable kick, especially when bare feet are involved!
And it doesn't cost anybody anything...win/win.

How about the guy who's balls are getting kicked in those games?

Just to clarify, those are not footballs. They're soccer balls.

Same thing. Oh, were you thinking of that other so-called football sport, the one where you don't actually use your feet, and all of the 'athletes' wear spandex capri pants?

I think that the play time for those kids is a necessity for survival. Way cool.

Paper balls?

No, I just walk that way...



newtimer  Thursday May 6 04:41 PM

I would prefer to burn the paper for warmth, some protection from wild animals, and as a way to cook what little food I had, for my survival.

But that's just me.



Gravdigr  Thursday May 6 06:15 PM

Looks like to me, if you had paper balls, you might get arrested.





For rustling.

I beg to differ. Soccer does not exist, English people invented Football and they called it Football, so ... yeah.

Not that i like football, it's a big wankery, but still...

And 478 Million for God?

God owns Google.



wolf  Saturday May 15 07:22 PM

So that's where the omniscience comes from!



xoxoxoBruce  Saturday May 15 08:20 PM

And a good cash flow, 'cause the churches sure aren't passing it along.
