The Kookaburras were very pleased with the results of our Amazon affiliation in 2014. By Amazon shoppers using the link on our website www.atlantafooty.com the Kookaburras received a significant financial gain, money that goes directly towards our purpose, the promotion of Australian Rules Football and Cultural exchange in the Atlanta area and around the USA.
As a Non-Profit organization we rely heavily on donations, sponsorships and programs like this to fund out activities and spread the word of our great game. In 2014 we were lucky enough begin to see the Amazon program can be of great benefit to us with the help of supporters, business owners and managers using our website link when making regular or one off purchases on the Amazon platform.
With your help it can of course be a lot better. We are looking for managers and business owners that regularly use Amazon to support their business to use our website link when making their purchases. Of course general consumer purchases, even for low cost items such as music, household goods & other media can have a significant impact in volumes. We encourage anyone at anytime to support us by making purchases through us.

With all Georgia school students studying about Australia in Grade 6 interest around Australia Day is always high. So Atlanta Kookaburras President Wayne Kraska was invited to present all he knew about his homeland and of course 'footy' to 250 6th graders at White County Middle School, 75 miles north of Atlanta. Not surprisingly hot topics of the day were Kangaroos, Snakes and of course Aussie Rules Football.
Questions were fielded ranging from what sort of Government do you have, to what is Australia's deadliest animal? A demonstration of a drop punt skimming over the top of the students heads drew a few 'ooohs are arrhs" but so did the Aussie flag, didgeridoo, boomerang and that very unusual cricket bat!!
