Paralysed Man gives 20.000 away to help child walk.

What an amazing act of kindness by this man who was Paralyzed raises 20,000 for his treatment but gives it away.

Maybe members on here can donate to the fund to help the child walk.

A true hero. Just think, certain Premier league footballers could pay for both of them with a week's wage and still have left overs for a new Bentley!

Football players do give money to good causes of course this does not get fully reported as it does not fit into the image of a what a football player is like and what he spends his money on :wink: Here are some real examples
1 Rob Green West Ham United

Climbed Kilimanjaro, raising more than £30,000 for the African Medical Research Foundation

2. Jamie Carragher Liverpool

Set up the 23 Foundation (his shirt number) to provide grants to young people on Merseyside

3. Rio Ferdinand Manchester United

Established the Live the Dream Foundation in 2008 to educate and train young people

4. Mikael Silvestre released by Arsenal

Founded Schools for Hope in 2005 to build schools in impoverished parts of the world

5. Rory Delap Stoke City

Raised more than £24,000 with cycle rides for the Donna Louise Children's Hospice Trust

6. Michael Essien Chelsea

Launched his own foundation last year to help underprivileged youth in Ghana

7. Ryan Giggs Manchester United

The Unicef UK ambassador also raised more than £100,000 for a children's hospital in Manchester

8. Shaun Wright-Phillips Manchester City

Ambassador for Education for the Children Foundation and the Prince's Trust

9. Jason Roberts Blackburn Rovers

Launched a foundation in 2007 to provide sports opportunities for youth in the UK and Grenada

10. Didier Drogba Chelsea

Last year pledged £3m to build a hospital in Ivory Coast, his home country

11. Craig Bellamy Manchester City

Invested £650,000 in his foundation, a football academy and boarding school in Sierra Leone

Also are the unreported stories of clubs and footballers helping good causes. "Every club experiences the same things we do, in that their projects are not given the coverage they deserve," says Simon Taylor, head of corporate social responsibility at Chelsea FC.
Last month the club launched the Chelsea Foundation, an independent charity that will expand its community and charity work, which it estimates is already reaching more than 800,000 people a season. The club works on a long-term basis with two main charities - the development charity Right to Play and Help a London Child. "Instead of spending a short amount of time getting a rough idea of how we can help an organisation, we aim for an ongoing two-way dialogue," says Taylor.

Chelsea helps to raise more than £1.5m a season for charity, part of a corporate social responsibility investment of more than £5.6m a season

Man City City and its supporters donated £500,000 to the New Children’s Hospital Appeal, set up to fund projects to enhance the newly-built facility which opened in June, 2009.
Joe Hart, one of the Blues stars who guested at the opening of a City-funded play area in 2010, was back with team-mates to hand out presents and chat to patients and parents.

Joleon Lescott, who toured the wards with Micah Richards, said: "We're very happy to be able to come in and do this. Just seeing the kids' faces light up is more than enough reward."

Matron Joanne Martin said: "It's great to see how cheered up people are to see the players, it takes their minds off the surgery and what is happening. They've been fantastic."

for them to take a few hours out of a busy schedule means such a lot. It makes a real difference to their day for patients and parents."

Other City stars including Sergio Aguero, Pablo Zabaleta, Mario Balotelli, David Silva, skipper Vincent Kompany and the Toure brothers made sure nobody missed out on a gift.

Many football players clubs do this with no media involvement wanting to keep the matter private .
