Conor McGregor Proves He’s Got A Heart Of Gold

Conor McGregor Proves He’s Got A Heart Of Gold

Conor McGregor on RTE 1.

Now and then, a celebrity goes out of their way to do some good, and it melts our heart into a little puddle. Though he spends most of his time throwing shade at his opponents and being an all round bad-ass, Conor McGregor, UFC champion, is a bit of a softie. He cares about making a difference in the world, and though he appears to be made of steel, there are a few things that greatly touch his heart. This time around, he’s donating €50,000 of his earnings to charities that deal with homelessness. The money made from his current tour of Ireland will be split evenly between the Simon Community and Focus Ireland.

Sharing the news on his Facebook, fans of the Irish superstar have reacted warmly to his goodwill.

Upcoming appearances in aid of the homeless crisis in Ireland. Tonight I will be in The Foundry in Waterford….

“Upcoming appearances in aid of the homeless crisis in Ireland.
Tonight I will be in The Foundry in Waterford.
Saturday I will be in the Savoy in Cork.
Monday and Tuesday I have gathered my team-mates for a Q and A in the Wright Venue in Dublin.
I am donating €50,000 from these events to help boost resources of those who are fighting the homeless crisis in Ireland, as we head into the colder weather.
€25,000 will go to the hard working Simon Community Homeless charity. This €25,000 will fund the mobile health clinic for a full year so the people in need can get the treatment they need when they need it.
The other €25,000 I will donate to Focus Ireland which will go towards the Family Services Division, which helps familiess in crisis move on from homelessness.
I put time into researching both the Simon Community and Focus Ireland charities. The work of both these organizations is unparalleled with the homeless crisis in our country.
We have put together a four-day event across the country. Meet fans. Have some fun. Celebrate life, and also help build money to put towards this major crisis we have in our country.”

Conor McGregor, our hero, in more ways than one.
