-- Daniel Palmier of Boston, the founder and CEO of UC Funding, LLC, a real estate financing, asset management, and loan structuring company, has been instilling philanthropy in his children, from an early age. Working with his son, Henry Castillo-Palmier, a competitive high school soccer player, Daniel Palmier of Boston was able to raise a substantial amount for Soccer Support Abroad (SSA). In addition, Daniel Palmier and his family have gathered sponsors to provide soccer balls and equipment to be sent to underprivileged children around the world. Had it not been for SSA and the generosity of supporters, such as Dan Palmier, underprivileged kids across the globe would have no resources to utilize in playing the game.
Soccer is very popular throughout the world. With the help of SSA and people like Daniel and his son, Henry, impoverished children will have the opportunity to learn, participate, and develop themselves to become skilled soccer players. These children will not be led astray to joining criminal gangs because of the lack of idle time. Most of their time will be focused on soccer and their school work. Soccer and team sportsmanship help children through various life lessons through playing the sport. Playing soccer on a team can provide and develop friendships and leadership skills for children that may originally have had no clear direction. Soccer can be a venue where children from different backgrounds and socio-economic status can interact and met thus developing camaraderie and good sportsmanship. Dan Palmier and SSA would like to help children development more awareness about sustainable goods, in addition to enjoying the sport and its wonderful benefits.
SSA appeals to billions of soccer fans for pre-owned soccer equipment and education to provide to the underprivileged children world. The new or used soccer cleats, socks, and shin guards given to these kids allows them to play, grow and appreciate the soccer game itself. SSA views the equipment as essential tools that help youth build their own self-sustainable future and to reach their highest potential, both on and off the playing field. Since its inception in 2011, SSA launched a school wide effort through Belmont High School to help the underprivileged youth of many impoverished villages in Costa Rica. SSA’s 2013-2014 project will focus on the impoverished children of several villages in Sao Paolo, Brazil. To find out how you can help, be sure to visit Soccer Support Abroad’s Facebook page. As Daniel Palmier has been actively participating in sports since his youth and experienced the benefits that sports provide for one’s personal development, he and his son, Henry would like to share the joy of soccer with the world.
Dan Palmier also understands the serious nature of cardiac arrest. As a result, Daniel Palmier is also currently mobilizing substantial aid to communities in Haiti with a particular emphasis on their hospital’s cardiac arrest services.
