Charity Spotlight: Kit Out Kids

Dubai footy fan aims to kit out Ugandan Primary School

Every week in Dubai children turn up at football training sessions in the latest football kits of their favorite team  however children in other parts of the world are playing just as good football but with a ball made of rags and no football boots or strip.  A young Canadian expat living here in Dubai aims to change all this.

Lachlan Macpherson has set up “Kit Out Kids” with the aim to provide football kit for children at Masooli Primary School in Kampala.  In the last two weeks he has collected 65 full kits from friends and team-mates at his football club and is now hoping many more footballers around the UAE will donate their unwanted, out of season or outgrown kits and boots.  Check out his face book page Kit Out Kids to see how you can help.

Somewhere in the world there’s a kid that doesn’t have a football kit like you do — or any kit for that matter. His shirt doesn’t say Beckham, Ronaldo or Tevez. He doesn’t have bright white socks or perfectly fitted shorts. His boots aren’t hot pink and he doesn’t have shin guards. But he practices all the time with whatever he can – a ball of rags, a ball made of just about anything. He may not look as good, but he sure is good at his game.

Somewhere in your closet is a uniform that doesn’t fit you any more. If your old kit has inspired you, pass it on to the next player. Please clean out your closet and help Kit Out Kids who aren’t so fortunate. We need football shorts, jerseys, and gently used socks and boots.
