The appeal has been set up by the family of missing toddler Madeleine McCann and funds will be used to help find Madeleine, support her family and bring her abductors to justice. Any surplus funds will be used to help families and missing children in United Kingdom, Portugal and elsewhere in similar circumstances.
Madeleine was taken from her parents' holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in Portugal's Algarve over a fortnight ago.
Robbie Keane commented: "The lads all saw the news about the appeal on the television and thought straight away that we wanted to do our bit to help."
