My name is Maclean Millar (but I prefer Mac). Soccer is my life. I love playing it, watching it and learning about it. My goal is to play for Manchester United like Robin Van Persie, but I really like Messi too. Mum still asks me what job I want when I grow up. She really doesn’t get it.

I love playing soccer and I think that all kids should have the opportunity to play soccer too, so I decided to start my project – Football. Play it Forward, where I raise money for soccer balls for kids all around the world.

So far we have distributed over 4000 soccer balls to 22 countries including Afghanistan (thanks to the Australian soldiers), Solomon Islands, Fiji, Vanuatu, The Maldives, Nepal, Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Uganda (thanks to Rotary), refugee detention centres all around Australia including Manus Island and Nauru (thanks to the Salvation Army), as well as Cambodia and the kids of Gaza.

Also the Australian Ambassador to Jordan, Ambassador Venamore has helped me to get soccer balls to the children from Syria who are living in refugee camps in Jordan.  The Ambassador has given the soccer balls to CARE International who have a football program helping the Syrian and Iraqi refugees assimilate with the Jordanian kids.

We are also working with the Australian Federal Police to give a kit of soccer balls to the Australian Peacekeepers when they go on a mission around the world.  These soccer balls are currently going to Papua New Guinea with the AFP.

So, please help me to raise more money for more soccer balls.  Thanks to the Managing Director of Rebel Sports and Amart, Erica Berchtold we can get soccer balls at $7.00 each when we buy them in bulk.  $100 will buy a kit of 10 balls, a bag, three hand pumps and markers for the pitch and goals.

Please click on the Donate Here button and lets help the kids together.  All money donated on the website goes to the organisation called GIVIT (run by Juliette Wright) and they will help me to buy the soccer balls.
