Eden Hazard and Chelsea FC bring Christmas cheer to a little boy at a domestic violence shelter

Good deeds matter

What Eden Hazard and Chelsea Football Club did for one unfortunate child has me going today.

Every Christmas, Alex Churchill, a.k.a. the Girl Who Likes Balls (she blogs!), runs a fundraiser to buy Christmas presents for kids who are stuck in a shelter for victims of domestic violence.

It’s a dark time in their lives (and the lives of their mothers).

Chelsea fans have always been generous in their donations and GWLB always has a heart-warming story to tell afterwards.

But this one may top them all.

What follows are two posts from her Twitter account, detailing a quick and personal response from Chelsea and Eden Hazard to her last-minute appeal to brighten, at least a little bit, one little die-hard Chelsea fan’s day.

Truly is great to see the club and its biggest star respond in such a way when they could’ve just ignored the request, or put in the base-minimum token effort.

Chelsea making a positive impact in the community, that’s what we like to see!
