Cobi Jones' Little Feet looking to help in Iraq

Cobi Jones is a legend of US soccer. His time on the national team saw wonderful play, which he also carried over to his MLS side the Los Angeles Galaxy. But Jones is out to do something that is bigger then all his plays on the pitch as he looks to help the children of Iraq.

Jones has teamed up with the Little Feet operation with the goal of bringing 50,000 soccer balls to the children of Iraq by March of next year.

As part of the campaign, Sports Authority stores will have displays featuring Jones, which ask people to make a $10 donation to purchase a ball. All balls will be delivered and distributed with the help of American soldiers currently serving in Iraq. You can also donate online.

There are obviously a number of opinions on the war in Iraq, but hopefully this event will allow people from all sides of the issue to come together and make a difference in the lives of children.
