We will cover this and more, but right now, we want to focus on another affected party, the Cosmos front office staff that have gone unpaid for multiple cycles.
This is an effort from the This is Cosmos Country crew to bring together Cosmos fans worldwide to support those truly affected by this period of uncertainty in our club’s future – the front office staffers put on furlough during the holiday season.
While so many of us wear our love for this club on our sleeves, our very livelihood isn’t determined by whether or not the Boys in Green take the field. Just like us, the front office employees are undeniably passionate in their love of the game. They work hard to spread the word and get fans to the games.
The League and owners have made questionable decisions with this club. We can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube, but as supporters, a club, and a family we CAN right one wrong, and give what we can to ensure the families of those furloughed get the holiday they deserve.
We’ll use 100% of funds raised to purchase gift cards at retailers like Amazon, Toys R Us, Modell’s… destinations for online and brick-and-mortar holiday shopping. We’ll dsitribute these evenly among as many front NY Cosmos front office employees as possible, with dollars raised by 11:59 pm ET on Saturday, December 17.
Stand with us and show the global soccer community what it means to wear the green and white, and let’s take care of our own. Every little bit helps.
