Leo Messi, the great protagonist
Barça player Leo Messi was the first to support the campaign and urge the rest of the world to make a simple gesture: paint their faces like warriors. The Argentine star made the gesture of painting two lines on his face after scoring the second goal during a match against Sevilla. The image of the moment that Messi makes this simple gesture went around the world and emphasised his commitment in the campaign to build the Paediatric Cancer Hospital in Barcelona.
The aim is to improve the percentage of children who are cured, which is now 80%
