Once again, music and sports have merged and, this time, for a good cause. Superstar Enrique Iglesias and soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo have joined forces to raise money to help children with cancer in Portugal.
Iglesias will donate 7 percent of earnings from his show in Lisbon, Portugal, on May 30. The funds collected will be donated to Portuguese Institute of Oncology of Lisbon (Instituto Portugues de Oncologia de Lisboa), which was chosen by Ronaldo, who used social media to make the announcement. “Very pleased to announce the gesture of my friend @enriqueiglesias donating 7% of the concert revenues in Lisbon to the IPO,” he wrote.
