Ronaldinho Scores $120,000 for kids!

May 01, 2010

Here’s a recap – - As a global spokesperson for the Amway One by One Campaign for Children, Ronaldinho earns $10,000 USD for children’s charities for each goal he scores through NUTRILITE’s Goal by Goal program during the 2009/2010 season.

What does this mean?  The proceeds have been earmarked to build a sports center for children near the city of L’Aquila, which was devastated by a massive earthquake hit in Spring of 2009.  The ground breaking ceremony and placing of the cornerstone of the sports center was celebrated in October 2009.

Now the update!!  Topping last year’s charitable donation of $100,000, with 11 goals in Italy this season, plus a ceremonial donation to kick start the program, Ronaldinho generated $120,000, allowing children affected by the earthquake in L’Aquila return to a sense of normalcy through their favorite sport.

“As a professional soccer player, it’s my job to help my team win,” said A.C. Milan Forward and Amway One by One Global Spokesperson Ronaldinho. “As a person who cares about helping children, it’s my honor to connect my profession with my passion of helping kids in need.”

“Ronaldinho not only helps us shine a spotlight on global philanthropic initiatives we support, but also highlights the importance that others can play in helping those in need to live, learn, achieve and play,” said Amway CMO Candace Matthews.  “We applaud his efforts in this program and in the community.”
