It's safe to say nine-year-old Tyce Glover loves soccer. He's played the sport since he was three years old. So when he had the chance to spread his enthusiasm for soccer to others, he didn't waste the opportunity.

Since his ninth birthday, Tyce has saved $208 in gift and other money. Not a bad haul for the kid. What to buy? You guessed it: soccer gear. It turns out $208 will buy you 12 balls, two pumps and some needles. All the essentials.

But, Tyce isn't keeping all of those soccer supplies for himself. Nope. He's boxing it up and shipping it to Zambia. "I like to do nice things for people," he said.

The soccer balls, pumps and needles are bound for kids in Zambia. A family friend who was already planning to travel there has agreed to deliver the gear.

"It made me feel very happy," Tyce said. "I'm so excited for those kids to get the balls and see the pictures that they have."
