Soccer posters

I worked at a summer camp this year called Chop Point that accepts campers from all over the States and from Europe. There were over a dozen teenagers from France and since I was the only staff member who spoke French fluently, I became very close with them. They were very interested in my Haitian kids and asked several times how they could help. So when I was planning my Christmas trip, I emailed them and asked if they had any soccer posters that they could send me for the boys. Just days before my flight, I received two packages with enough soccer posters for each boy to have 2 or 3. If you think I was excited when the packages arrived, you should have seen the boys' faces when I pulled them out on my last night.
