These Soccer Balls Bring The Community Together, But Not In The Way You’d GuessThe Hunger Site
The beautiful game is now the enlightening game. Soccer, the most popular game in the world, can now be used to literally bring light to homes. Soccket, a soccer ball made by “Uncharted Play,” converts kinetic energy into electrical energy. You can kick it around for a half hour, and then use it to light a bulb for several hours or charge a cell phone.
Soccket is one of several ideas to help impoverished communities living off the grid. You can donate to bring solar lanterns that use clean energy to bring bright, long-lasting light to rural Kenyan homes.
