Lionel Messi decided to collaborate with the Pedro de Elizalde Children’s Hospital, in Argentina, by carrying out a noble action that will help hundreds of infants. And it is that the PSG star decided to donate an autographed national team shirt for him to be auctioned and raise money to help the little ones.
After Messi’s donation, the president of the Pedro Elizalde Children’s General Hospital Association of Professionals, Claudia Cavillón, thanked the player for the gesture and commented that it is an honor to have the PSG player’s shirt.
“It started like a dream. Lionel Messi‘s solidarity made it a reality. We are very excited and grateful; for us it is an honor and a pride to have the shirt signed by the best player in the world and to be able to carry out this international auction for benefit,” Cavillón told Efe.
In this sense, the shirt of the captain of the Argentina team will be auctioned from Friday until next February 22 and it will be done through the Instagram account of the Association of Hospital Professionals (@apelizalde).
