I am hoping that some of you might want to be a part of MMA history by grabbing yourself an EXCLUSIVE hoodie and contributing to the crowdfund for a film about the social project.
The hoodie shows the Christ the Reemder statue towering above the favela, the black belt represents the fighting spirit of the community.
You can win a MSI gaming laptop worth $2000 +. You can also potentially win a trip to Rio to meet Jose Aldo - there are loads of other PERKS and all contributions help us to make our film AND directly contribute to the social project itself.
For every success there has unfortunately been equal heartache and many kids have lost their lives to the violence of the drug gangs and military/police incursions.
We are surrounded by negativity; the news shows us this problem and that problem and fills us daily with a sense of dread and fear. Hill of Champions is a story that demonstrates perfectly; even in a world filled with turmoil the base human spirit is one of positivity and giving. What the fighters of Santo Amaro represent to their community to the children who attend their social project and to other communities like theirs resonates equally with all of us. They represent hope, they represent strength and struggle and they represent generosity and humility. These guys have risked their lives to save lives. The second vid shows this in motion.
