We are going to donate a cash amount to Playworks Indiana for every goal that Indy Eleven Striker Éamon Zayed scores this year, we encourage you to join in the fun and do the same. You can pledge any amount you want from $1 or you can just choose to make a one time donation to this cause.
Together we want to raise $2000 for this cause, and if we hit that before the end of the season we will raise the bar!
Why donate to Playworks?
Playworks is the leading national nonprofit leveraging the power of play to transform children's physical and emotional health. They create a place for every kid on the playground to feel included, be active, and build valuable social and emotional skills.
Playworks partners with schools, districts and after school programs to provide a service or mix of services including on-site coaches, professional training for school staff who support recess, and consultative partnerships.
Playworks Mission: To improve the health and well-being of children by increasing opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play.
Playworks vision: One day every child in America will get to play - every day.
Who is Éamon Zayed and why does he get his own rule?
Éamon Zayed is a very highly rated striker who is now playing for our local professional soccer club Indy Eleven. He has been around the world as a pro and everywhere he goes he scores goals.
The #EamonZayedRule was originally created by a foreign government to control and restrict Zayed's ability to 'play' and his eligibility status for soccer teams within that country.

Bloody Shambles and Permanent Relegation along with Éamon's skills are taking a negative and turning it into a positive by taking back the #EamonZayedRule and helping provide more fun for children in Indiana by partnering with Playworks Indiana and donating money.
So how can you get involved?
If you would like to join in the fun and pledge any amount from $1 per goal you can use the web form below to sign up. This will be done on a trust basis and your details will remain private. We will send out two to three emails during the 2016 season with updates on Éamon's progress. You can choose to donate as you go along or donate at the end of the season.
If you would like to just make a one time donation you can do so using the funding page which is linked below the form. You can also still fill out the form and leave the pledge amount blank if you would like to receive email updates on our progress.
You can also donate in person at home game tailgates via the Brickyard Battalion tent in Lot B or to any of the Bloody Shambles (James Cormack, Caleb Ramp) or Permanent Relegation (Andy Baumgartner, Chris Ball, Aaron Gunyon) crews at watch parties or other events. Follow both on twitter for a heads up on where we will be each week! @Bloody_Shambles and @prpodcastshow.
Help us push this great initiative by promoting it on social media and using the hashtag #EamonZayedRule... spread the word!
