Christiano Ronaldo is a Real Madrid star. While there are many stars who give back to the community, we don't see stars who make personal sacrifices everyday. I believe many stars give out of their abundance. However, Christiano Ronaldo gives a piece of himself regularly and literally. He donates his own blood. Not only that, he altered his lifestyle by avoiding tattoos, which are very popular, to donate blood regularly.
Cristiano Ronaldo is used to inspiring people for his on-the-pitch exploits but the footballing superstar is now trying to do so off-it for a far greater cause.
For the role model that he is and the inspiration that he has been giving to the youth today, he should be awarded with a medal.
While this celebrity footballer is certainly setting a good example that should hopefully encourage others to also donate blood, he should not be rewarded for this behavior. He is as likely as anyone else to need a blood transfusion at some time in his life so it is completely fair that he should play his part in contributing to the blood banks.
It was a good thing that Christian Ronaldo donated blood, but he does not deserve a medal for it. This would be like giving someone a medal for walking into a store and buying only healthy food or for donating food to the homeless. It is a nice gesture, but it is small.
