The Vasquez Family

All profits from our beanie sales are donated to the Vasquez family.
Meet the Vasquez family. They are a young couple in their 20’s who are just starting out in life.  Enrique and Kelsey, Olivia, 4 and Eli, 10 months. Little Eli has just recently been diagnosed with MPS1, a rare genetic disease that breaks down your bones, organs and brain. He has the most severe form of MPS1, which is known as Hurlers syndrome. The life expectancy untreated is less than 10 years.  They will be spending up to 6 months here at the University of Minnesota medical center, where he will receive enzyme effusion and a bone marrow transplant that will allow for, if successful, a longer and better quality of life! The road ahead is long, and the costs are going to be astronomical! If you find it in your heart to help, please do! And thank you! If you can’t help, please pray and share this. God hears our prayers and can work miracles in our efforts to help Little Eli!

To some people, football is a game of heartbreaks. To others, it is “the beautiful game”. Depending on one’s past experience, a person has every right to their own opinion. Among the heartbreaks and the beauty, to Spam Football Club (Spam FC), football is a game that is very giving.

Since 1998, it has cultivated an environment for children from different walks of life to come together to learn, play, and establish lifelong relationships. It has provided these young Spam FC players an understanding of what it means to build an inclusive and equitable community and that a droplet of kindness and generosity can create a ripple effect of positivity across their expanding network.

In 2014, Spam FC started a Scholarship Foundation to help students who have been positively impacted by soccer pay for college. Since their first street soccer tournament, Spam FC Scholarship Foundation has donated more than $70,000 to more than 60 students who are pursuing their higher education degree.

This collaboration between Spam FC and Opinion Clothing is a no-brainer. This is another example of football creating a platform and space to give back, as 100% of the proceeds from the hats and hoodies will go to helping students pay for college in 2021.
