Default Grow the Sport

Hello everybody i would like everyone to visit our Facebook page link here and see how my son started this Facebook page to grow the sport that we all love to a tiny village in Kenya.

Thanks for looking and like our page.

Grow the Sport!
We are 9,000 miles away!

I don't know what to do. On the one hand, the thread was started by a brand-new account with only one post, and in that post they're asking for Facebook "likes," so my reaction is a negative and skeptical one.

On the other hand, it's for disc golf in Kenya, which is a great cause.

What to do?

Yeah, I wonder how many "likes" it will take for the sport to be officially grown. I'd hate to come up just one short.

I don't do FB, but my wife does, and I understand the skepticism.

Sadly, another disc golfer that has no facebooks. Good luck.

If this is for real, welcome to the site and good luck. Otherwise, PM me and I'll help you move your family fortune out of Kenya.

I'll bet you also make little kids die of cancer because they only got 999,999 likes instead of 1,000,000.

After looking at the page, I am lead to believe that this is a person in the USA whose son "the ambassador" has started a group to donate discs to Kenya, and is also maybe trying to start up "full blown disc golf?"

If you agree with this post, type "amen".

I really wish the OP luck, if I was going to Kenya I would want to do the same thing.

If you "like" his page and share it on your timeline you will get an ace by the end of the week! However, if you ignore his post and move on you will loose your favorite disc in Davy Jones's locker by the end of the week.
