Fuerza Chile Earthquake Support T-Shirt - White
On February 27, 2010, an Earthquake with the magnitude of 8.8 on the Richter Scale struck Chile near the large city of Concepcion that was felt as far as Brazil. It was followed by many aftershocks above 6.0, which still have not halted, as well as Tsunamis across areas of the Chilean Pacific coast that completely destroyed beach cities and port towns. Over 700 have died; 2 million people have been displaced from home. Millions of Chileans affected and Billions of dollars needed to rebuild, CHILE NEEDS YOUR HELP. This Country carry's tremendous pride for their homeland and have internally raised over $250 million. However with over $3 Billion estimated to rebuild, we still have some work to do. The Chilean National Soccer team had to cancel their International Friendly's that they planned to host against North Korea and Costa Rica. These games are intended to help prepare the team for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, and for the coach to select his final roster. "soccer cannot remain apart from the catastrophe," Mayne-Nicholls said on the federation's Web site. "Nor can we be indifferent in the face of the pain and tragedy for thousands of Chileans. The prevailing interest now is to meet the urgent needs of our country," he added. "There will be time for soccer."
