The whole football world is fascinated by Lionel Messi, the football wizard of Argentina. Argentina won the World Cup after 36 years with the magic of Messi’s left foot. But not only football, he has won the hearts of people by doing various humanitarian works.
This time, Lionel Messi set another example of humanity. The Argentina star has donated his prized World Cup jersey to fund youth education and mental health services. He donated the jersey to fund US singer Selena Gomez’s charity ‘Rare Impact Fund’. The base price of the auction is 6 thousand dollars.
The jersey will be auctioned this October. The base price of Messi’s jersey in the auction is set at 6 thousand dollars. The auction will continue until the end of October. However, the organizers believe that Messi’s jersey will be sold at several times more than the base price. And the money from this will be spent on mental health services for the youth.
Earlier, Selena went viral with her reaction to watch Messi play in MLS. Justin Bieber’s ex was once again impressed by Messi’s kindness.
