I agree; lots of famous people do a lot for charity but they don't shout about it.
I have never disliked
Beckham but have also never understood, and been bored stiff by the obsession over him - however I agree with your other points!
I'd like to think more high earners might be inspired by this beautiful gesture.
Very, very impressed with David for doing this. Classy man.
Gospel of Matthew...Jesus speaking
6:1 “Be careful not to display your righteousness merely to be seen by people. Otherwise you have no reward with your Father in heaven.
6:2 Thus whenever you do charitable giving, do not blow a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in synagogues and on streets so that people will praise them. I tell you the truth, they have their reward.
6:3 But when you do your giving, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,
6:4 So that your gift may be in secret and your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you."
That's his Sainthood scuppered then
