our world needs great leaders.
our world needs you!


Many of the great things in this world were dreamed up by leaders when they were young.  Many of the great leaders in this world used their time as a student to grow, develop and discover the importance of making a difference.

Many of the unfortunate things in this world require the next generation of leaders to be bold, creative, resilient, humble, sacrificial, resourceful... the list goes on.

The world needs your help...and Halogen Australia is here to help you.

Jakob and Tom are students from Star of the Sea School at Henley Beach, South Australia. After attending Halogen’s youth leadership event in Adelaide, they were inspired to make a difference and immediately put their thinking caps on.

Being footy enthusiasts, they were aware that there are young people out there who love their footy too, but do not have access to the right clothing/equipment to even get started. And they wanted to help. They thought about the fact they always grow out of their own footy boots so fast and cannot wear them anymore, even though they are still in good shape! Together, they came up with a brilliant idea. What if they could provide footy boots to young people in remote South Australia, including Indigenous players in the APY Lands? And so...the Kick in my Boots Foundation was born.
