If you are a fan of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the name StreetGames might ring a bell. Earlier this summer, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sent a heart-felt thank you letter to the UK-based group all the way from Los Angeles, California. Learn why StreetGames is one of Meghan and Harry’s favorite organizations and find out what they are doing during the pandemic below.
During the letter which was dated June 19th, the Royal couple expresses their gratitude towards the work StreetGames has been doing during the COVID pandemic. The Royal couple writes, “We wanted to write and express our heartfelt thanks to the team at StreetGames following their support delivering Hubb Community Kitchen meals throughout London. To know that North Paddington Youth Club, Solidarity Sports and St. Matthews Project distributed hundreds of freshly prepared meals across their networks of young people over the last few months is fantastic.”
The charity, which has long been a favorite of Prince Harry, actually focusses on teaching disadvantaged young people across the UK about teamwork and leadership. However, due to the pandemic, StreetGames has pivoted their approach. “The impact of COVID-19 has been a scary and testing time for so many people from all walks of life” wrote Meghan and Harry. “It is in difficult times like these that goodwill to others and community spirit prevails” they went on to say.
Although the Royals may have stepped way from their Royal duties, they have not forgotten the charities they supported, “We have been touched to witness from afar the coming together of the organizations we champion and so deeply care about. The compassion and leadership of young people across the StreetGames network is vital, and it is their kindness and selflessness that inspires others to do better.”
StreetGames was one of seven charities selected by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to receive donations in honor of their Royal Wedding. StreetGames strives to make children and communities healthier, safer and happier which will ultimately lead to success in life. To learn more about StreetGames be sure to visit them online HERE.
