Help the (Re)Fugees

O.k., time for the 'Raptor Street Irregulars to put their noggins together to help out the Fugees.

Yesterday/below we had this about this in the NYT. Long story short, the Fugees are a soccer team made up entirely of young refugees currently living in Clarkston, GA. The story was so moving that I decided to find out how one goes about helping the team out. Turns out one can find out more about them and make donations at their website, Fugeesfamily.org. Check it out.

In an e-mail to the Fugee's coach, Luma Mufleh, and in a post, I suggested that they make up some T-shirts for fund-raising purposes. Below, coach Luma asks whether we have any ideas for such shirts.

Now, this is not the kind of thing I'm good at, and probably not the kind of thing most of you are good at, either, but if we put our heads together, tap some other bloggers, etc., we ought to be able to (a) come up with something catchy and (b) persuade some folks to donate and/or buy a shirt.

So start coughing up the clever ideas already. Fame is fleeting, and these kids could use our help.

I'm thinking a globe with soccer ball tiling might be a good image, but beyond that I'm stumped. Best of luck to the team, though.
