Mac Millar meets the DPR Korean football team in Melbourne

On Monday 12 January Mac Millar travelled from Brisbane to Melbourne in order to meet up with the visiting DPR Korean Football team - in support of our Football Play it Forward Project.

Rotarian Rob Ward and the Rotary Club of Brighton North made it all happen and were able to connect a number of interesting pieces of the puzzle here - and bring enormous smiles to everyone's face. Read Rob's press release here.

Our project is now about 20% funded - but we need more support if we are to reach our target of 1400 soccer balls and uniforms for orphanages in the DPRK.

 

Update - Football Play it Forward

This week we have a flurry of positive activity around Mac Millar's project.

We have now secured commitments in excess of our original plan for 200 soccer balls and uniforms and so we investigating now how we could grow this for bigger impact, possibly with company sponsors.

Our partner Dr. Jong has designated two orphanages as initial targets and so we are looking into the possibility of expanding our reach into the other 10 institutions on his list. 

We are exploring football jerseys as well as football boots.

Meanwhile Rob just noted that the DPRK team will be heading to Australian in January to compete in the Asian Cup. One game will take place in Melbourne so perhaps a chance to connect with this project.
