I feel lucky and bless to be able to share this few words.Over the past month i have been observing and thinking of how some kids in different countries especially Africa, South america, Asia,etc...been toiling so hard in other to get something to eat to sustain them for the next or couple days. It saddens me when i hear stories of young girls who abandon their offspring's basically because they weren't able to provide for their offspring's due to hardship, no money, no food, no shelter etc..I am here to give you confidence in donating to a simple and complex, abstract idea: I believe passing out a sticker that says, "I Care, and willing to help" is a method for showing your support. Refresh someone and you will be refresh, help others and you will be help, bless others and you will be a bigger blessing. P.S. richiepee via fundly P.S.S.

Mayweather: Let's make Pacquiao fight happen May 2

Image
Floyd Mayweather Jr. says he's ready to fight Manny Pacquiao next May in a long anticipated bout that would be the richest ever in boxing. Mayweather called for negotiations for the fight to be take place, though he warned Pacquiao not to expect to get anywhere near the money that he himself would make. ''You lost twice and now you're coming back begging for the same money?'' Mayweather asked. ''That's not gonna happen.'' In an interview on the Showtime network from a fight card he was promoting in San Antonio, Mayweather for the first time called for the fight to happen and even gave a date - May 2. He claimed it wasn't him but Pacquiao's promoter, Bob Arum, who has been the main obstacle for not making the fight in the last five years. ''Floyd Mayweather is not ducking or dodging any opponent,'' Mayweather said. ''Bob Arum is stopping the fight. We have been

Carlo Ancelotti's side was uncomfortable until wrapping up the win at Almeria late on and now heads to Morocco on the best-ever streak in the team's history.

It was more difficult than the scoreline suggests. Real Madrid beat Almeria 4-1 away from home to stay on top of La Liga and make it 20 wins in a row in all competitions. Perfect preparation for the Club World Cup, but a tougher test than the Merengues would have wanted. Madrid flies out to Morocco on Sunday looking to add a world championship to the Champions League crown claimed last May in Lisbon. And in their last  Liga match  of 2014, Carlo Ancelotti's men were forced to dig deep. In the end, two late goals from Cristiano Ronaldo made it look a  lot easier  than it was, but Almeria missed a penalty (Iker Casillas' first spot kick save in La Liga since 2011) at 2-1. The game was wide open until the Portuguese slotted home the third following a fine move involving both Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema. With Almeria squeezing spaces in the midfield and pressing persistently, Madrid missed the quality, touch and passing of injured pair James Rodriguez and Luka  Modric .
