Yesterday did not only see the final of the EURO 2012 between Spain and Italy with a thrashing victory of the defending champions, but also the end of streetfootballworld's UNITED Fundraising Challenge. WhizzKids United finished the challenge with an excellent 2nd place, having raised a total of €2,118 since the launch on 16 May 2012.
Streetfootballworld (SFW) awards WhizzKids United with a top-up donation of €2,000 for this second place. In addition to the donations and the €2,000 prize money, WhizzKids United also won the side challenge of getting the most Facebook recommendations. An incredible number of 146 people recommended the WKU profile on www.justUNITED.com to friends in their social network. This side competition guarantees WKU another €500.
