Sacha here, Mac’s mum. Well, Mac has achieved his goal. We received a call from a journalist in Afghanistan saying the Australian soldiers distributed the soccer balls to the children of Tarin Kot over the week end. It was Mac’s birthday yesterday and he said it was a great present to know the balls got to the kids. Mac will be on the Today program tomorrow morning (Tuesday 30 April 7.13am) talking to Karl Stefanovic about his project.
Mac has also delivered 60 soccer balls to the Rotary Club of Fortitude Valley for their project in the Solomon Islands. Mac’s new aim is to provided soccer balls for the children of refugees in Australian detention centres.
Thanks for all of the support Mac has received for his project. Much appreciated.
Mac’s (and Jock’s) very proud mum.
