Hi! My name is Anna but my teammates just call me "Texas." I'm co-captain of a women's tackle football team in Budapest, Hungary. My team, the Budapest Wolves Ladies, was the first women's American football team in the country, founded in 2006. You can find out more about us at our Facebook page and Instagram account.

Our goal as a team is to help develop the women's game in Hungary: to build more women's teams, a women's American football league, and eventually a women's national team that could compete in international tournaments. Our goal as individual players is to be the best we can be in order to form the core of that future national team. We have each already spent countless hours, and dollars, on football - on training, equipment, and travel - because we love this game and will not give up! Every once in a while, though, we need a bit of help with the travel part.

For the third year in a row, USA Football (the sport's governing body in the U.S.) is going to host an international women's tackle football training camp called Women's World Football Games, in order to help develop the women's game around the world. Participants get to train with and learn from some of the best players and coaches in the U.S. and around the world, then return home to share what they have learned and help their teams grow. It is an amazing experience, not only because of building technical skills but also because of building a supportive community of women athletes and those who coach them around the world. So, we would like more players to have the opportunity to experience what it is like to be part of this community.

We have set up a travel fund to help defray the cost of participating in Women's World Football Games 3 in New Orleans, USA (March 1-6, 2016) for up to four women's tackle football players from Hungary. If we reach our goal, the fund will cover camp fees and accommodation for four players. Here's the cost breakdown:

Camp fees: $299 x 4 = $1,196

Accommodation: $952.74 (5 nights for a room of 4, $169+tax/night at the event hotel)

--Total: $2,148.74

Please help some of our young and talented players in Hungary achieve their dream of training and playing at an NFL facility with coaches and players from around the world! We are immensely grateful for your support, financial or otherwise. Every penny counts, and so does every positive thought and every word of encouragement!

Thank you so much for your support,

Love,

Anna "Texas" Banhegyi & the Budapest Wolves Ladies women's tackle football team,

Budapest, Hungary
