$500 donations for each goal kicked
This could end up costing Toyota a small fortune! For every goal kicked in the four televised AFL matches this weekend the top-selling car company will donate $500 to a local footy team.
The funds will go to the junior AFL football club nominated by the senior side and should run to a total of tens of thousands of dollars.
Toyota tell us it’s all for a good cause with the funds being provided to help the juniors buy new equipment and improve their facilities etc.
The Good for Footy games included last night’s match between Adelaide and Hawthorn in which 26 goals were kicked (26 x $500 = $13,000).
While the other three games include the Sydney-Essendon match-up tonight, West Coast v Melbourne tomorrow night and the clash of the long-time Victorian rivals Richmond and Carlton at the MCG on Sunday.
All of those games will be televised on Channel Seven.
