Cristiano Ronaldo donates ‘Golden Boot’ worth €1.5 million to Palestinian children

London: Real Madrid iconic forward Cristiano Ronaldo has donated €1.5 million to Palestinian children in Gaza, the Arabic version of the club’s Classico network reports.

The star forward gave his Golden Boot which he earned in 2011 to the Real Madrid foundation, RT.com reports. The Spanish giants in their turn sold it at auction and will now donate the funds to schools in Gaza, Palestine.

According to various reports, the Real Madrid Foundation has helped to build 167 schools in 66 different countries.

Real Madrid Foundation (FRM) had recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Aman Foundation at the Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid under which they will establish two sports schools in Pakistan.

No confirmation has come yet from Ronaldo’s official Twitter handle or from Real Madrid’s official site but it’s not the first time Ronaldo has given to charity. Last year he sold most of his sports shoes at a Real Madrid Foundation auction which was also dedicated to raising funds for schools in Gaza.

    Im a muslim and first of all there are many people who have been brainwashed with hardcore islamic beliefs who believe in the notion that one can only do good, if one is a muslim. This is wrong. Anyone from any religion can do noble deeds. And stop preaching like this, you are only making islam look bad.

        bro.. its quite natural.. for any muslim to react like the above.. because they wish.. that he(ronaldo) may get reward for his act in the heavens rather than the blazing hell fire/hell
        you may ask how a persn can actually gets rewarded in the hell…
        every act of the mankind is recorded… and will be questioned… for a disbelievers good act.. the reward is given either in this world itsef or in the hell by giving lesser punishments… its with allaah.. no one knows what he has willed.. coz we have hadeeth which mentions… some of th family members of prophet Muhammed peace be upon him are not entering jannah just for not bearing witness that Allah is the one and only and Muhammed pbuh is the messenger…

          So if he remains a Christian (as he is), he will burn in hell despite any such good deeds he undertakes? Really??? Come on, if someone lives a good life with good morals and ethics then they will go to heaven, it does not matter if they are Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist or whatever. Leave Ronaldo alone and allow him to practice his religion in peace.

       He doesnt need to follow ISLAM to do an act of GOODWILL, there is only one GOD whether it comes from a muslim, christian, sikh, hindu, other religions – people need to stop preaching about whom they should follow and just see the goodness in others and let them continue doing that.

        I guess u dont really understand the significance of being a Muslim ……….. off course God said he’s going to provide for all of his mankind, either good or bad, but the best among all is the Muslim….He is blessed in both here and the hereafter. Not  that Christians don’t worship the same God, but it’s an act of blasphemy to claim Jesus is the begotten son of God rather God does not begot a son nor is he begotten ……..He surpasses that stage to begot a son , cause he is the “ALMIGHTY” ….. to begot a someone is an animal act of the highest order….that is where we have problems with our fellow christian brothers and sisters , not a sign of hate…..u deeg!!!

          Then there are Taliban who kill many innocent people in Pakistan and announce as if they did a great service to Islam. Will they go to Janet and this Guy will not. I don’t believe it. I am Muslim too, so think without any bias.

            Oh okay so Muslims must be the best since they are allowed to treat women like complete and utter shit and Mohammed was a tacky rip off. Religion is stupid and you are all a disgrace to the human race.

        • Faiz said:

          Who are you to judge and say what is blasphemy??? people have their faith, doesn’t mean you need to preach it. Not your job

          • True Belief said:

            faiz its not judging its a simple part of our belief, if your done your research, and took the time out to seek obligatory knowledge, you would know what the christians and jews say its blasphemous in every way, its not judging its simple knowledge, nobodys trying to offend noone, end of the day christians say our prophet muhammad sallilahu wa alayhi wa sallam isnt a prophet…..? is this not blasphemy at a dangerously high level? they say god has 3 different forms, one of them being human…….Is this not blashemy, brother i encourage you to learn. In sha Allah you will seek the obligatory knowledge for every Muslim brother and sister. assalamu alaikum

        • Adam said:

          I completely disagree with this comment. Your lack of respect for Christianity is disgusting. People have different beliefs, respect that. You believe in things that I don’t believe in, and I believe in things that you don’t believe in, but don’t come here preaching, calling us blasphemous and using sentences such as “an animal act of the highest order”. Have some respect for other people’s beliefs, just as you would expect people others to respect yours.

          • Emad Khan said:

            remember in our religion islam we respect and believe in jesus , moses the same as mohamed , difeerent then christianity and jews , ask any muslim and he will respond this then if its no then he is not been considered as muslim

    • Dr_dre26 said:

      Exactly he does not need to follow Islam to be a good Human being! I hate him as a footballer for his Manchester United days as human being he is awesome! Much respect to the guy!

      • True Belief said:

        nobody sayin you need to follow islam to be good, so your points invalid, end of the day there is no harm is someone asking god to guide him to islam, as a muslim we encourage people to be muslim, i dont mean shout and force it down peoples throats, but somebody mentioning it on here isnt exaclty preaching, i think people like you show hate towards what muslims do, just because you dont want to listen or believe, dont mean everyone thinks like that, and if they did then islam would be the largest growing religion in the world. I ask Allah to guide you to Islam one day, have a good day.
