Nope, but I cannot really tell who's "great" idea was to give the kids Sports Illustrated issues either.

Whoever this guy is he should be seen as setting a very good example to the rest of the sporting world, like football and soccer, with players who make millions of dollars playing games yet don't appear anywhere near the parapet of charity donations.

why this disgusting world finds ok those individuals that make wide announcements about how good they are?! otherwise what is the purpose of spreading news of such basic gesture, other than people in your circles look at you with different eyes? And no, the purpose is not to take example, people usually applaud the gesture and move on. when larger organisations are involved is necessary to hit the news so people can contribute. there are more individuals that gives to charity from a humane instinct, just that they don't let the world know. f**k this worlds stereotypes
edit: this is actually like those youtubers that helps homeless guys in America, only to film the whole process and put on youtube for views and to show what great persons they are. this article is the same, just at a larger scale. be quiet about it or f**k off
