more good deeds
The PSA our boys filmed back two weeks ago is out! A handful of the players – with Iker and Pepe appearing twice – of the Spanish national team stars in a public service announcement for the United Nations Development Program’s 8 Millennium Development Goals. These were agreed upon in the year 2000 by 189 nations, and the objective is the reach these goals by the year 2015.
The goals are: One. Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger. Two. Achieve universal primary education. Three. Promote gender equality and empower women. Four. Reduce child mortality. Five. Improve maternal health. Six. Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases. Seven. Ensure environmental sustainability. Eight. Develop a Global Partnership for Development.
Important things, no?
For a translation of the video and screencaps, read more (it’s worth it, I promise you, because our boys are such good looking ambassadors for this cause, since they can just about convince me to support anything).

Pepe: getting a star.
Villa: becoming champions of the world.
Iker: many objectives have been reached, but nothing will be as great as achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
