Paris, France -- September 17, 2010 -- On September 17, actor Jimmy Jean-Louis took to the stage on behalf of PUMA.Peace at the Peace One Day concert in Paris to talk about the One Day One Goal campaign.

PUMA.Peace is the sole supporter of the Peace One Day, One Day One Goal campaign to encourages football matches around the world on September 21st ­ the international day of cease fire known as Peace Day.

The goal of ODOG is to harness the power of the beautiful game to encourage peace and cooperation. Sport has the ability to cut across all geographic, ethnicities and politics and enable greater understanding and respect.

Many of these football matches strengthen and support peace building efforts in regions previously in conflict.

Jimmy Jean-Louis was proud to announce that over 3,000 soccer matches were held in honor of this year’s Peace Day, with games in all 192 UN member states.

A game that was of special importance to Jimmy Jean-Louis was the match played in his native Haiti. His excitement was contagious and the crowd clammered for the soccer balls he threw into the crowd to support ODOG.
