So, we’ve sparked some neat comments in our David Beckham strand of conversation, huh?
What do you think of this one, posted a few days ago by Anonomyous Bob:
Push Back to Push back to your Push back
Many of you said comments such as:
"There are many ways that he could be helping out around the globe."
"…I also think we should give more money to poor countries because we have way more money than them and they need money. "
But when you think about it. It’s not that he is getting paid for having a bad talent that everybody has; David Beckham has a REAL talent which most of us don’t have. I’m sure if everybody had the natural talent to do anything and everything the people of the world wouldn’t work as hard to be good at something, simply because there isn’t anybody like David Beckham to look up to anymore.
Also many other people argue that his money is going to waste when he could donate it somewhere.
"…ways that he could be helping out around the globe. He could donate his money to Organizations such as St. Jude, Make a Wish, etc. He could also collect money to help sick people. He could send a portion of his salary on countries in extreme poverty, for food and fly nets. There are so many possibility’s"
Well, maybe Beckham isn’t sending money to other countries in poverty, but he is doing his share to help the world he has supported UNICEF and even became a Goodwill Ambassador. He also recently hosted the "World Cup Party – Full Length and Fabulous" at his mansion in Hertfordshire, raising money for THREE charities.
And what about us? How often do we look at ourselves to donate money? How come we always look at the rich and the wealthy? We get decent pay why don’t we look at ourselves to help too? Is it selfish of us to think that only the tremendously rich people like David Beckham have to donate?
Besides, aren’t there are other ways that people can help the world other than money?
How about the fact that David Beckham is in the U.S soccer league because he wants the sport to grow here. Maybe while he’s here he can also be a positive role model to the slowly becoming over weight kids of America.
Is it possible?
