Denmark was trying to send a team to the Homeless World Cup, which kicks off in October in Chile, but had come up short 20,000 kroner (about $3,500). They team had already raised a lot of money, so new donors were hard to come by and time was running out.
In stepped Daniel Agger.
The Danish international asked an Ombold board member — the organization sending the Denmark team to the tournament — how things were going. When he found out they were in need of money to be able to fund the trip, Agger didn’t hesitate to tell them he’d give them the money.
"You just tell me where and when to spend the money; and also if there is anything else I can do," Agger said.
What a selfless and wonderful act, Mr. Agger.
