totalBarça is 5

We are 5 years old today. totalBarça is 5. Yet, it feels like it has been five decades. So many things, good and bad, have happened within the last half-decade at FC Barcelona.

CONTEST: The totalBarça community are all monkeys

CONTEST: The totalBarça community are all monkeys

A number of us at totalBarça have been at this project for a number of years now. Your support for our project is the single most important thing that keeps us motivated. Second most important is our community’s support for UNICEF. And it’s during instances like #weareallmonkeys that provide newly injected motivations. There are many viewpoints on the matter, but here we would like to consider this our contribution as another single step towards eradicating racism. As mentioned in our original post for this campaign: “We are all people, all humans, each of us vulnerable to the same fears and all of us capable of the same dreams.”

With that, we’d like to invite you to submit your “we are all monkeys” image. Let’s show the world how our community can come together and support this now infamous occurrence. More good news after the jump.
