David Robert Joseph Beckham is his full name. An soccer player from England who plays for LA Galaxy in Major League Soccer. More than any soccer player, David Beckham is said to be the most famous that even a non-soccer fan knows him.

Aside from being a great soccer player, David Beckham is also a ambassador for UNICEF and it has been his greatest legacy. He has been part of the UNICEF since his days at Manchester United in January 2005, He became a Goodwill Ambassador with a special focus on UNICEF’s Sports for Development program. More recently Beckham has pledged his support for the current Unite for Children, Unite against AIDS campaign.

Now that their team LA Galaxy is in the Philippines for their Asian tour, Beckham really took time to visit former Filipino street kids in a UNICEF-supported children’s shelter in Manila. His sincere gladness with the kids is priceless. “He’s more than just a soccer player,” says Chris Bech, an expat in the Philippines who is an avid Beckham fan. “His heart for the less fortunate is truly amazing,” Chris Bech added.

The LA Galaxy had a friendly match with the Philippine Azkals that ended with 6-1 score. Still they showed everyone that they deserve the title of being the MLS champ.
