Who We Are
KitAid Australia are Partnering with the football community to collect and distribute your old or new kit to some of the most underprivileged communities in Australia and the Indo Pacific.
KitAid Australia is a charity set up by David Walker, who visited Mongolia with Diamonds in the Community in 2019 that supported KitAid and other very worthy causes.
Through this trip David realised that through football a difference could be made to people’s lives by community inclusion and involvement and with the assistance and mentoring from Derrick Williams MBE (KitAid Founder 1998) he set up KItAid Australia to enable Football Kit to be collected from partnering clubs, retailers, distributors, Governments and individuals and distributed across Australia and the Indo Pacific region in partnership with other charities.
We reach out to the global football community
Networking with Football Clubs at all levels and the football community around the world we seek donations of new and used football kit so that we can recycle it and give joy to people who have next to nothing.
Most football clubs will change their strips, change sponsors or just grow out of kit every other season. Kids grow out of football boots extremely quickly and individuals end up with collections of football kit in their wardrobes that will never be used again. KitAid ask that this surplus kit can be donated to us so that we can then distribute it to underprivileged communities who have next to nothing and who will give this kit a new lease of life and thus giving the joy of giving to people/organisations that donate knowing that it is going to a very deserving cause that can change poeple’s lives.
