Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo, a caring person

Considered by many as the best futbol-soccer player of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro may or may not be the best inside the soccer field, but outside, this young player is a caring player that worries about the problems in our world. He is the son of Dennis Aveiro, whose admiration for the actor and former president of the United States, Ronald Reagan, gave his son Cristiano the second name of Ronaldo.

Cristiano, known in the entire world as CR7, started his successful professional career as a futbol-soccer player on August 16th 2003, playing for the Manchester United F.C. and after his first season, Cristiano was considered a rising star for his abilities with the ball. He proved this by becoming the player of the year in 2008, giving him juicy contracts with the club.

With the Manchester United Cristiano Ronaldo reached 3 Premier leagues, 2 league cups, a champions league, he was given the golden ball, the golden boot and the FIFA world player.

On July 11th 2009, Cristiano was sold to the Real Madrid F.C. for 80.000.000 Euros; the biggest amount of money ever paid for a futbol-soccer player. And we would think that we had seen the best of this great soccer player, but with the Real Madrid F.C. Cristiano harvested more titles and awards and became an even better player, so far he has scored 326 goals—and counting—he is the biggest scorer for his country team; Portugal, with 55 goals.

When we hear the name, Cristiano Ronaldo, the successful futbol-soccer player comes to our minds, the winner of many awards, a great soccer player. But there is a part of Cristiano that not everybody knows; the philanthropist.

This caring person from Portugal has helped many causes, and with this he shows that fame and fortune have a better use than just buying an expensive “modus vivendi”.

In 2006, he traveled to Indonesia to collect funds to rebuild what a tsunami had devastated;he also met with the vice-president and president of that country to give a monetary contribution.

Later, in 2011, he put up for auction one of his golden boots to collect funds for the children of Gaza, where a bombing had occurred. Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the few futbol-soccer players that never rejects a child’s greeting, he always speaks to them, and sometimes gives away his playing shirts to children fans with an illness.

One time, a man and his wife approached him to see if Cristiano would donate his playing shirt to put it up for auction, in order to collect funds for the man´s son, who required an expensive treatment to treat to get rid of an illness; Cristiano not only gave them the shirt, but he also paid for the whole treatment for their son, just like that, without even knowing them.

We can count all his achievements and summarize with numbers all the things that he has accomplished. We can praise all his plays and goals, and we can clap, cheer, and shout when he is on the field making a difference for his team and his fans.

Cristiano probably will be remembered by most people as the great futbol-soccer player who achieved everything, but for people in several countries that he helped, he will be remembered as a kind and caring person who made a difference in their lives.
