Last June, Lionel Messi and his now wife, Antonella Roccuzzo tied the knot and got married in Rosario, Argentina. Despite their luxury lifestyle and incredible wealth, they still decided to keep things traditional and get married in the town hall surrounded by family and friends. But, what they asked for as their wedding gift was from your everyday request.
Some of the biggest names in world football attended the ceremony including Neymar and Luis Suarez. The argentine therefore took the opportunity to make the wealthy individuals reach deep into their pocket for a wedding gift.
Most couples when they get married ask for things like a toaster, a kettle maybe, if it’s not too much to ask, one of those fancy coffee machines. But Messi and Roccuzzo are evidently not like “most couples. They asked their wedding gifts to make a charitable donation to The Lionel Messi Foundation. His self-named charity works to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and offer them a better future.What a beautiful cause and an incredibly selfless gesture from the Messi family.
