20.12.2011» Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi team up for a charity campaign

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi united in their biggest battle: Fight children poverty

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi joined forces in a charity "battle" that intends to help children from all around the World. The Real Madrid and Barcelona players will be part of a couple of online auctions to raise funds for ONEXONE, a worldwide non-profit company, that seeks to help children.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi might be the biggest rivals on the pitch, but when it comes to help others, the two players have already proven in many occasions how supportive they can be. This time, the two best football players in the World, started an online auction campaign at CharityBuzz.com, in order to raise funds for ONEXONE, a non-profit company that aims to help children from all around the World. With this move, Ronaldo and Messi join a roll of celebrities such as the musicians Carlos Santana and Wyclef Jean, the famous NBA player LeBron James, or even Hollywood actors Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Charlize Theron.

Regarding the beneficiary of these auctions donations, ONEXONE, you may read more about their work at their website (onexone.org), as well as getting complementary information on their mission: "To improve the lives of children in Canada, USA and all around the World, with programs dedicated to live fundamental pillars: water, health, education, play and food." Their main focus is therefore to turn into reality the following principles:

- Every child has clean water to drink.
- Enough food to eat.
- Where no child suffer or succumbs to illness due to improper or insufficient medical care.
- Where school and learning are a right and not a privilege.
- Where every kid has the chance to just be a kid.

Ronaldo7.net also intends to join this cause and even though we won't be bidding in Ronaldo's or Messi auctions (the minimum $3.500 bid is out of our pockets reach), we're planning to donate a small amount, through a facebook campaign that will depend on our users and readers participation and interactivity. More details on this will be revealed in the upcoming days.

If any of you also intend to help ONEXONE through smaller donations than the ones required for Ronaldo and Messi auctions, you may do it by visiting ONEXONE donation page: http://www.onexone.org/donate-now.php
