Rory sets up dream charity for children

RORY McIlroy has created a new charity to help children around the world.

The Northern Irish golf champion said he wanted to give children the opportunity to follow their dreams.

The 6 Bags Project is the first fundraiser that will see Rory's golf bag carry the name and logo of a children's charity.

During a specified tournament the bag will be auctioned through www.roryfoundation.com with all money going to the featured charity.

The first charity whose logo will be carried on the golf bag in Abu Dhabi is a charity from the North -- The Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children.
