The BRO Sports™ Contest Division is getting extreme for this year’s World Cup!
One of the goals for this division of BRO Sports™ is to partner with real-world sports organizations in need of support. Well, we’ve found our first real-world organization in none other than the currently downtrodden population of Venezuela and we’re happy to support them with a series of World Cup contests and fundraisers over the next month!
The recipient of funds raised will be Club Tribu Escarilada – @climbinglifeclub on the Steem blockchain – and the founder of that club is @yazp. The club was officially organized in July 2017 and is a legally-structured and recognized organization in the capital city of Caracas, Venezuela. You can read their introduction post here:
The goal of this fundraiser and contest is to provide some assistance to the club so that they may purchase some needed climbing ropes for use by the club members. The ropes they currently share among the members are becoming worn and pose a safety risk and they also have very few ropes to share among the membership. The climbing ropes are one of the most expensive items needed but are also one of the most necessary to have.
So the BRO Sports™ Contest Division is going to host a series of World Cup contests and we will direct funds raised from those contests to Club Tribu Escarilada.

Contest Fundraising Goals and Additional Information
This will give us a total of 13 contests over the next month. From the contest post rewards, 70% of the SBD/STEEM will be directed to Club Tribu Escarilada - @climbinglifeclub, 20% will go to contest winners, and 10% will be reserved for future donations to this and other charitable initiatives. Our target fundraising goal is 250 SBD. That means the post rewards would need to be the approximate equivalent of 65-70 SBD per contest post.
This is a very ambitious goal, but we believe that it is certainly an achievable one and we hope that the community can help us get there. We welcome any and all support, including direct donations. All purchases of equipment will be documented on the blockchain via the @climbinglifeclub or @yazp accounts and updates will be shared via this account, @brospn-contests.
