There are very few people who have not heard of Beckham and of his legendary feats on the field.
Even though the English football captain has long retired from the field, his popularity is like a cult following. That definitely rises from the athlete being nothing less than a star and a natural leader. Today he is part of a campaign by UNICEF where the focus is about spreading awareness about basic hygiene issues and helping children and women in developing countries across the world. Beckham admits that the goal is an ambitious one, but the money that is raised is definitely being used for different awareness campaigns.
There is a 7 Fund that he is a part of and it focuses on education for children, ensuring basic drinking water and freedom from diseases like AIDS and HIV.
