How about using your influence to improve mental health services in your own country, for starters.

Oh, sorry for dreaming.

Nice thought, but not sure that an actor and a footballer are the people I would entrust money to.

What's the bet they are making some fee or whatever on this.

Didn’t Will Smith lose money in his latest movie on Netflix?

And know he wants more of what he couldn’t make-dream on Will!

So after Ronaldo turned Smith down, he settled for Honda?

Good for them, wishing success.

Honda has consistently made the world a better place. If we all try as much as he does many people will benefit. From schools to water supply.

The management firm statement said Honda had been "shocked", while playing club football in the Netherlands a decade ago, to learn that some of his fellow players were sending more than half their salaries home to support families in Africa and South America.

Coming from Japan this is not surprising. While there are plenty of enlightened Japanese among us far too many live in a bubble about the rest of the world!

I am surprised though that it took Honda THAT long to realize it.

Do some reaseach and you will be suprised how much and how long Honda has been supporting communities with little.

Looks like a constructive arrangement.

As long as Jaden is not asked to perform.
