Why Mario Balotelli is really called “Super Mario”- He not only donates money to orphanages and children’s homes, but visits them as well. He likes to do this with no publicity so that it is just a one on one with the kids, and not a publicity stunt.
For all you people who hate Balotelli, I think you should think again. Sure, he has done some unintelligent and crazy things, but behind those things is a man who is using his money not just for himself, but others. He’s not like most athletes today who just go to a camp or some charity based event for a few hours and then takes 2 pictures and wonders when they can leave. By not taking pictures he’s doing something else. He doesn’t care about the press or what people think of him, because the only ones who matter to him are the people close to him and the ones he helps out. The children with diseases, difficulties, and hardships, and tries to brighten their day, in a personal way.
Thank you Mario, you make me proud to be a fan of Manchester City and yourself.
