He's truly a role model on and off the field.
Leo definitely has all of the qualities of a good leader: he doesn’t miss an opportunity to show us how great he is on and off of the soccer field. This time he is recognized because of his values and his humanitarian work all over around the world.
Leo has won the ‘Champion of the Year’ award, given by “Peace and Sport”, “L’Organisation pour la Paix par le Sport”, a neutral international organization based in Monaco, which brings sports and its values, and develop projects within communities in crisis all over the world; and the Values Award of 2020, in the category of international athlete by SPORT and Prensa Iberica, during the third edition of the Sports Values Gala.
Through the Leo Messi foundation, he participated in the funding of a new children’s cancer center in Barcelona’s Sant Joan de Deu Hospital, as well as the promotion of education and social inclusion for disadvantaged children in different parts of the world. Also, last year he donated 1 million euros to Spain and Argentina to help them out against the fight towards COVID-19.
The Messi Store team is very proud to see Leo growing in every aspect of his life, to see him so attached to his values. He definitely is an excellent role model, and we are happy to see how he also gets recognition for his help, generosity and social work, not just for his talent with the ball.
