Quick plea please, I am trying to help out a friend who is living in Johannesburg at the moment and doing voluntary work at a local orphanage. As well as being an orphanage, it also acts as a day care and after school club helping out families that are led by children or grandparents due to the death of the parents through AIDS.

Well you saw how nuts the kids were there for football when you watched the world cup??????

Well ………………

……………. all they want for Christmas is……………..

our kids old football tops.

I already have pledges for 8 – and I’m sure you guys can conjure up a few if you asked around, your kids, their mates, their mums, their friends, their schools? You collect from them – and I will collect from you.


Lets get creative over the next five weeks and see how many smiles we can create on Christmas morning.

Email/PM me back your pledges as soon as you can so we can arrange suitable shipping to Africa.

Thank you so much in advance oh, and please pass this email on to any of your contacts. We are aiming to have 10,000 yes you read it correctly 10,000 shirts for Christmas day.

If you can think of any other ways to help, eg you know a shipping firm, a premier league footballer, etc then please let me know.
