I’m feeling really good about my aim to help the kids all around the world to play football. And you can help me. We can get soccer balls for $7.00 each. For $100 I can get a kit of 10 soccer balls, a bag, three hand pumps and markers to mark out the pitch and goals.
So far we have distributed over 4000 soccer balls to 22 different countries including Afghanistan, refugee detention centres all around Australia (including Manus Island and Nauru), and many other countries around the world.
Rotary has been a great help and has let me ‘piggyback’ on their humanitarian projects. They’ve helped me to get soccer balls to 10 different countries.
We’ve also got soccer balls to the children from Syria who are living in refugee camps in Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon. The Australian Ambassador to Jordan, Ambassador Venamore, helped us to make this happen.
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.
I have a goal to raise $5000 for children in Bangladesh. At the Rotary International Convention in Sydney I met Showket, the incoming District Governer. He said if I can raise $5000 then he will match it and together we will provide $10,000 worth of soccer balls for the kids of Bangladesh. The Showket will arrange a soccer tournament in his district. This sounds amazing!
So, please help me to raise more money for more soccer balls.
This is where you can help. Please click on the Donate Here button and lets help the kids together. All money donated on the website goes to the United Nations Association of Australia and they will help me to buy the soccer balls.
