Give it like Beckham

Again, in my argument for Becks/Posh as America's Brad and Angelina (with Euro flair) have, "raised almost £1 million for vulnerable young people in five years, it has emerged.

According to the Mirror, the couple's charity, run by Victoria's mother Jackie, has brought in £913,269 since 2005.

The Victoria and David Beckham Children's Charity gave money to 12 causes in 2009, including £2,487 to the Aids Mobility Centre, which provides young people with wheelchairs and other specialist equipment.

David Watling, managing director of the charity, commented: "To have raised so much money and helped so many people is amazing.

"Some of these wheelchairs can cost £10,000 and they are life-changing."

According to its website, the charity organisation was established in 2002 and has so far provided equipment to over 1,000 children and young people in order to improve their independence.

David Beckham is also on the leadership council at Malaria No More UK, as well as functioning as a goodwill ambassador for Unicef since January 2005."

It warms my heart to know that a couple with such a great platform is doing something positive with their resources and not merely wasting away all that 'excessive' capital that they gain, combined. Money makes money... to give money..
