Save the Children Global Artist Ambassador Cristiano Ronaldo Introduces App for Fans to Take Selfies with the World’s Most Charitable Athlete; A Portion of Worldwide Proceeds to Benefit Save the Children
FAIRFIELD, Conn. (Aug. 9, 2016) — Fans can now take a selfie with soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo wherever and whenever they please and help kids at the same time.
Cristiano Ronaldo Said
“From the very beginning, I knew that I wanted this app to support a charitable cause I believe in. I have been involved with Save the Children for several years now and knew they were the best partner for this app. As a father and Global Artist Ambassador for Save the Children, I am committed to working towards giving all children a better and brighter future. I invite everyone to be a fan with a cause, so be sure to download the app, take a selfie with me anytime, anywhere and everywhere – and at the same time help kids in need!”
One in 11 children is out of school worldwide. Refugee children fare even worse; they are five times more likely to be out of school than non-refugee children. Education is critical to helping children build opportunities for success, as well as realize their dreams. Together, this partnership and the power of social media can have an incredible impact on children globally, opening the door to learning and other opportunities to put them on the path to reach their full potential.
To help children, supporters can download the app and smile, shoot and share with Ronaldo by visiting CR7Selfie.com, and posting and tagging their photos to @Cristiano and @SaveTheChildren on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Weibo.
*The price of the app may vary slightly according to the market. Please check your local Apple App and Google Play stores for more details.
