UEFA.com and UEFA will again be donating money to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) as part of the UEFA.com users' Team of the Year 2011. Users can also make donations to the appeal should they wish after voting.
UEFA began working with the ICRC when it backed its anti-landmine campaign in 1997. This will be the fifth time that the ICRC will benefit from the cheque offered by UEFA to herald the selection of the UEFA.com users' Team of the Year.
All monies donated have gone to the Score for the Red Cross initiative in support of the ICRC rehabilitation project for landmine victims in Afghanistan – providing them with artificial limbs, physiotherapy and vocational training. The first cheque was handed over to the ICRC by Cristiano Ronaldo, followed latterly by FC Barcelona's Xavi Hernández, Lionel Messi and Carles Puyol.
