It was one day while out for coffee with Alex Chidiac that the young Atletico Madrid midfielder told her about Common Goal, an organisation helping tackle some of the worlds toughest social issues from HIV/AIDS to gender inequality to youth unemployment.

It was a no-brainer for Luik.

"I was like sign me up," she told The Guardian.

The pair have decided to give one per cent of their earnings to the growing cause, which tackles social issues by raising money for what it terms 'football for good' organisations. 

"We’re in a really blessed situation as footballers and we have the privilege of earning a good income and at one per cent I feel like almost anyone can give that because there are a lot of other people in great need," Luik said. 

They join the likes of American Alex Morgan, Manchester United women's coach Casey Stoney, Canada captain Christine Sinclair and Manchester United star Juan Mata.

Luik wants to encourage other footballers to join the cause. 

"I would encourage each and every footballer out there to join Common Goal and give that one per cent," she said.

"I think the more that join the better off we will be."
