In an effort to quell the hunger in third world countries, aid relief boxes are sent in by organizations like the UN, UNICEF, and the Red Cross. But what happens to the boxes after? Could they be reused for a good cause?

To provide kids with a temporary escape from their tough lives, Unplug Design Studio have conceptualized aid relief boxes with patterns that, when followed and assembled, become sturdy paper soccer balls. For children living in countries like Tanzania, Rwanda, Congo, and Somalia, the Dream Ball Project provides them a short break from the war, poverty, and natural disasters that are ever so present in their lives.

  • Awesome, but I agree with Kevin, I don't think they'll last long. But it's good to see the people behind this are reaching out. :)
  • plus are they heavy enough to play with?
  • It's a cool concept but I can't see these "balls" lasting too long. Isn't there some way we can get these kids some real soccer balls?
  • Whats old is creative!
