Pledges for smiles will go to the International Institute of Minnesota (directed to refugee services). See more about their work on their website: http://iimn.org
Pledges for serious faces will go to Centro de Trabajadores Unidos en Lucha. Information about them can be found at http://ctul.net/.
At the end of the season, pledged amounts will be totaled, collected, and then donated to the respective charities under the name of "Red Loons" (with each individual donor identified).
The Red Loons is a soccer supporters group dedicated to supporting Minnesota United FC. We are a coalition of Marxists and progressives who recognize soccer as a sport of communities and we are dedicated to mobilizing community to fight bigotry, fascism, and rank capitalism. We want to use the community that soccer builds to create spaces of inclusion, positivity, and hope. This fundraiser is administered by Red Loons member Kate Sophia.
