These soccer balls are perfect for Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. For this price, I can afford to purchase more of them (along with hand air pumps) to put in older boys shoe boxes. These boxes are delivered around the world to children in need along with other necessary items. The balls are all holding air. I will have to deflate them before packing, but that isn't a problem. I am very satisfied with the quality of these balls. I didn't think they would be this good for the low price, but they are.
