TEAM GAME FOR CHARITY FOR GAVRILO’S VICTORY – MOZZART BUYS RONALDO’S ARMBAND, THE FUND IS RICHER BY 7.5 MILLION DINARS
The Belgrade Firefighter and Rescue Brigade sent a smoke signal to the burning problem in the treatment of spinal muscular arthrophy - what is this world like when a medication for one child costs more than two million dollars? Firefighter Đorđe Vukićević and Mozzart triggered hope for the victory of little Gavrilo, and on the field of charity they were united by the anti-football move of Cristiano Ronaldo. His captain's armband, thrown in revolt after an unrecognized goal in the match Serbia - Portugal, ended up in the hands of the hero from Maracana, then at the auction, and then at the representatives of Mozzart, which made the largest bid at the auction via Limundo. – 7.5 million dinars.
There is no VAR in the World Cup qualifiers, so destiny was the main referee of this match. And it determined that only Gavrilo Đurđević, the baby who fights the hardest battle, can be the winner. In a few years, no one will remember the result 2:2, nor Cristiano's goal. It will only be remembered if that annulled goal in the end means Gavrilo's victory.
The best football player in the world, the captain of the European champions, threw the ribbon in the 93rd minute at our biggest stadium, probably in the last important games without VAR, but it fell into the right hands. The hands of the leader in the game of humanity, a company that has been helping to raise funds for the treatment of children for years.
- By purchasing this ribbon, Mozzart wanted to send the message that the treatment of children must in no way be "the most important side thing in the world". We are glad that the world media wrote more about this charity auction than about whether the ball crossed the line at Ronaldo's hit or not. With the bids at Limundo, we also wanted to draw attention to the large problems that parents face in raising funds for the treatment of their children. The final result of the match Serbia - Portugal is no longer important, now all eyes look at the final outcome of Gavrilo's struggle. Thanks to firefighter Đorđe who made all of Ronaldo's actions that evening unimportant with his noble gesture, as well as to the organization "Zajedno za život" and Jovan Simic who carried out the auction – said General Manager of the Mozzart Company, Slobodan Prodanović, who received the ribbon from the young firefighter.
Handover of the ribbon to Mozzart was attended by a part of the brigade led by Miloš Majstorović, Commander of the Belgrade Firefighter and Rescue Brigade, as well as Acting Deputy Minister of Interior and Head of the Emergency Situations Department,Luka Čaušić. They paid tribute to Đorđe for the noble idea, and the firefighter, about whom Reuters wrote and whose story appeared in the leading global media, reminded that the funds are still being collected.
- I am gratefull to Mozzart and the Ministry of Interior for giving us great support in this important action. We are trying to save the life of one child and I hope we will manage. As from Monday, the Emergency Situations Department is launching its own action, which was also approved by the Minister, and we hope that a lot of money will be collected. Once again, I call on all people who are able to help, to send a text message with the number 973 to the number 3030 and to help little Gavrilo as much as possible. – emphasized Đorđe Vukićević.
