Footy Facemasks: Covering Up For Charity
A plethora of footy celebs have been opening their hearts, wallets and ill-advised closets lately and we’re always ones to applaud good work for a good cause. Plus, it doesn’t hurt when charities enlist pretty people to help make the world a better place.
Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard, Manchester United’s Michael Owen and Coleen Rooney (Wayne’s Missus) are just three of the many celebs showing their support for Children’s Hospice week (May 15 – 22). Participants have been asked to design “hero” masks in honour of the work children’s hospice services do, which will eventually be featured as part of the art exhibition, “This is My Hero. ”
If you missed your chance at purchasing Steven Gerrard’s one-of-a-kind stick figure, don’t fret, as his future seems better fit for stage costume design. However, if owning ‘baller artwork is on your bucket list, you can snap up any of these three creations by placing your bid here. The money raised will directly support children’s hospice services.
