Salute: Carson Wentz to Match Up to $500K for Sports Complex in Haiti
Philly got a special one when the Eagles drafted Carson Wentz.
He seems like a genuine guy who actually cares about the community. This just goes to show that.
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz announced a major fundraising campaign to build a new sports complex in Haiti.
Wentz’ AO1 Foundation partnered with the Mission of Hope: Haiti to raise money for the complex. Wentz announced on Twitter that he’ll personally match every dollar donated to the complex up to $500,000 for the next two weeks.
The complex will feature 10 soccer fields, two indoor basketball courts, six outdoor basketball courts, 5,000 shaded seat track and field, dormitories for 200 people, locker rooms and a community park with wifi, a play space and lighting.
The partnership between the AO1 Foundation and Mission of Hope began in 2017 after Wentz visited Haiti during a mission trip. -(David Chang, NBC Philadelphia)
