On Giving Tuesday, 29th November, we’re asking you to wear your favourite football shirt to work and donate £5 to support the next Street Child World Cup 2018.
How do I get involved?
It’s easy! Donate at least £5 to wear your favourite football shirt to work on Giving Tuesday and ask your work colleagues and friends to do the same. Simply donate £5 for every shirt worn. The more people who get their kit on, the more funds we will raise to support the World Cup that changes lives.
Please share your football shirt selfies with us on the day at #StreetChildWorldCup

There are an estimated 150 million children being forced to survive on the streets around the world.
Instead of receiving help or protection, these children are in constant danger; invisible, alone and without a voice.
They are often blamed for their circumstances, discriminated against, and denied the opportunities that all children deserve to realise their potential.
The Street Child World Cup is an international football tournament just for street children, which takes place ahead of each FIFA World Cup.
The next Street Child World Cup will kick-off in Moscow, ahead of the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018.
Teams of street children, girls and boys, will come together from across the world to play for change, tackling the negative perceptions and treatment of all street children worldwide.
This is more than a game.
Your support will help make the next Street Child World Cup possible, ensuring that street children are seen and their voices are heard.
