The Leonsis Foundation

As you may know, KICKINGIT is the remarkable documentary film crafted by Susan Kock and her team and produced by Ted Leonsis Films in accordance with Ted Leonsis's concept of filmanthropy, which is widely written about on the web and applies to both of Ted's films, Nanking and KICKINGIT. You should read Ted's blog, Ted's take. Link here.

Believe what you read: while not only using the film to catalyze interest in the problem of homelessness and to empower organizations like the Homeless World Cup, Ted has underwritten the Homeless USA Cup through he and his wife Lynn's foundation. All this in on top of taking a personal interest in the lives of the players in the film.

Thank you for making this tournament, this bright spot in lives of so many who are down and out, a reality!
