London, 21 August 2014 – Generous ticket donations from a multimedia company, Fights Sports, part of CSI Sports, has enabled Play for Change to sponsor a child’s healthcare needs for four years at its children’s home in Bali, Indonesia.
The impressive amount was raised in the build up to the eagerly anticipated World Middle-Weight Championship Boxing at Madison Square Garden, New York. Fight Sports generously donated two pairs of tickets to help raise funds for Pika at YKPA Play for Change.
Pika, 15 years old needs $50 a month to maintain her specialist healthcare. She suffers with spina bifida, a fault in the development of the spine and spinal cord which leaves a gap in the spine. The spinal cord connects all parts of the body to the brain.
Andrea Radrizzani, founder of Play for Change, said: “My sincere gratitude to CSI Sports for their generosity and showing us that every donation counts and can make a significant and positive impact for those in most need.
“YKPA Play for Change has touched the lives of so many homeless children and we are honoured to help them continue their incredible work.”
