MANILA, Philippines – The Clear Dream Match this Saturday featuring the Younghusband brothers and two football legends will be an entirely non-profit match, with the game’s proceeds going toward relief efforts and a foundation that helps street children.

Clear brand manager Drew Copuyoc announced that they are “doing their part” to help the millions of Filipinos affected by the southwest monsoon and tropical storm "Maring," which battered Metro Manila and neighboring provinces this week.

“The Clear Dream Match is an entirely non-profit match, and 50% of the proceeds will be given to relief efforts. The other 50% will go to the Tuloy sa Don Bosco Foundation,” Copuyoc said.

Tuloy sa Don Bosco is a non-government, non-profit organization that aims to be “a center of excellence in the reintegration of street children into mainstream society through a comprehensive program of caring, healing and teaching,” according to its website.

Phil and James Younghusband, along with football legends Fabio Cannavaro and Dennis Wise, are set to visit the Tuloy sa Don Bosco Foundation headquarters in Alabang on Friday, where they will distribute relief goods.
