Celebrating His Marriage in a Unique Way
On the day of his marriage, UK football club Arsenal Muslim player Mesut Özil has revealed a big plan for children in need. He will pay for 1,000 children to have life-changing surgery, asking friends and family attending his wedding to follow suit. He and his wife Amine hope to bear the expenses for surgeries of 1000 children in need! Özil has been a huge supporter of the charity BigShoe, who work with German and Swiss doctors to provide life-changing surgeries to kids who need it. Their partnership has existed since the World Cup and they have worked together on three different projects across Brazil, Africa, and Russia. Özil urged family and friends to take part and help the project succeed. The newlywed couple has also reportedly made sizable donations to the Turkish Red Cross, partly in an effort to feed thousands of Syrian refugees living along the Turkish-Syrian border. Özil is also an ambassador for the Rays of Sunshine charity, formed
in 2003 to brighten the lives of seriously ill young people and their families across the UK by granting wishes and providing ongoing support in hospital and within the community.
