Afghanistan’s First Ever Winter Olympians Will Compete In Pyeongchang

For the first time in the history of the Winter Olympics Afghanistan will be sending two athletes to compete in 2018 but they need your support to make their dreams come true. Alishah, Sajjad and the Bamyan Ski Club aim to raise 30,000 Swiss Francs within 30 days to fund their continued training and participation in Pyeongchang. To support go HERE.“Alishah and Sajjad grew up in war and poverty. There was little prospect of a better future – until they discovered their passion for skiing. Participating in the Olympics would mean the fulfilment of a life’s dream. But what’s more, two Afghan skiers at the Olympics would constitute a sign for the distressed people of Afghanistan and the world. Hard work and a little help can contribute to overcome even the biggest obstacles.”

….there are some pretty sweet items that correspond with different contribution levels including this badass Bamyan Ski Club t-shirt:
