Luka is well aware that everyone deserves a chance. That is why he wants to help children to achieve their dreams and to help their parents being able to afford them. That is why Luka has joined forces with friends who share his passion, Jaka Bijol, a rising star of Slovenian soccer, member of Slovenian national team and a player of CSKA Moscow, and Robert Kristan, a former Slovenian ice-hockey player who played in the KHL for numerous clubs as well as in Slovak and Czech leagues and also participated in Slovenia’s national team first ice-hockey appearance at the Olympics in Sochi.
They established a non-profit foundation ‘Make dreams come true’, through which they want to help underprivileged children by co-financing sports activities for which they are passionate and talented.
The foundation will collect funds together with sponsors and donors, but also by SMS, bank transfer and at charity events.
