Soccer and Crochet

This film made to Yahoo! tells the story of a smart Brazilian guy who brought from Australia a sport called footbag. Here, he mixed it with three more sports and created a new one, the Futsac, a fusion of football, voleyball and tenis. The bags are made of crochet, stitched by old ladies who live in underserved areas. He created an Association of crocheters and part of the profit obtained with the sell of the bags is reverted to this Association. This social work has helped them, improving their revenues and raising their selfesteem.
