Barber Michel Ibrahim gets a kick out of soccer gear donations

In 1993, Michel Ibrahim began a personal mission to get soccer gear to some of the kids who could use it the most.

Since then, he's sent 150 large shipments of donated gear, reaching an estimated 15,000 children in 24 countries—and he runs the whole operation out of his small West Vancouver barber shop.

Watch the video to find out what drove him to commence his curious crusade all those years ago.
