Hello, my name is Ann Richardson. I have been selected by International Federation of American Football (IFAF) to particapate in the Women\'s World Championship in Stockholm, Sweden, from June 27-July 3. I can only complete this feat with your help!

I have been supported for years by family and many friends all through my life in sports.
I have been very successfully in sports through the years.
My senior year of High School I was hoping to get a scholarship to college to play fast pitch softball. I was a great third baseman and wanted so badly to be seen in the college world. Unfortunately, like many others, I never made it to college due to life responsibilities. Not giving up on my dreams to be an Olympic player and represent my country, I still pursued my sports life and in my early 20’s I found a way to go to the next level.
I was given the chance in my early 20’s to play in a slow pitch softball league for a few years and then was given the opportunity to play in a slow pitch World Series tournament in Canada. I was able to make many friends and network with other women who played other sports.
One of the ladies I met during the World Series introduced me to women’s football. I started my football career in 2001 with a team in Dallas named The Revolution. I played the season out and was approached by the Dallas Diamonds football owner to come to join their off season just to see how I would like it. I fell in love with the Diamonds. So nine seasons and 4 championships later, in 2010 I am still playing with the Diamonds. Ever since my first year playing football, I have improved my stats. Threw recommendations from coaches and those close to me, I have been selected by the International Federation of American Football (IFAF) to go to Sweden in efforts to be successful for team USA and to be a part of 2012 Olympics. I and 44 other teammates will be representing the United States in Sweden from June 25th-July 5th. We will compete against 5 other countries to bring home the title to the United States. The other countries that are competing for football’s first ever Women’s World Title are Austria, Canada, Finland, Germany, and Sweden. With all this being said, I need your help. The money I am raising will help to pay for my travel expenses and accommodations. Any donation will we be appreciated.
Please help me represent our Country, and Thank you for your time.
