7 year old boy, soccer fan Alex Ibarra has managed to grow a collection of 54 soccer jerseys! When Puerto Rico was struck by disaster with the hurricanes, Alex decided to raffle off one of his most prized jerseys, a signed Christian Pulisic Dortmund jersey. A jersey he was able to get when the United States Men’s National Team was in town for a World Cup qualifier against Honduras. In a statement made by Alex Ibarra:
“I’m raffling it off because I’m trying to raise money for the Puerto Ricans that don’t have food and water,” Alex said. “Puerto Rico’s really important to me because they’re one of our territories.”
