"As years go by, the project gets more beautiful and joyful. This year, we had to do a lot to acquire our facilities. It's nice to see how everybody got involved. I explained the project to Rafael Nadal and asked him a racket to donate. Not only did he donate one, but three rackets and three t-shirt, all autographed. People are touched when we talk about this beautiful story. We'll keep on together, now as an Ambassador."
