David Beckham might not be the greenest bloke in the world, but last week he made up a little for his jet-setting ways by spending a long weekend in Auckland, New Zealand and helping some great charities!
On Thursday, December 4th, Beckham spent the evening with KidsCan — a charity dedicated to meeting the basic physical needs of financially disadvantaged children, leveling the playing field for them so they have the chance to reach their full potential. Not only did he attend the event, but he also paid $9,000 for a print of Barack Obama during the auction portion and donated it right back to the auction.
Then on the Saturday, Decemeber 6th, Beckham participated in a game to benefit the New Zealand Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Furthermore, the warm-up match benefited New Zealand-based charities such as KidsCan and Find Your Field of Dreams – a new charity set up by athlete John Walker to make a positive impact the lives of young people in South Auckland by providing them with opportunities to live healthy, active lifestyles and pursue a positive pathway through sport and recreation.
JEEZ! That’s a whole lot of charity awesomeness. Even though we’d like to see Beckham get a little greener, we most certainly appreciate all those good deeds. Keep up the good work!
