Kai Havertz will be wearing a limited-edition pair of boots he personally designed against Arsenal. He also plans to auction them off to help those who have been affected by the deadly floods in West Germany.
Chelsea’s Champions League finalist has relatives who still live in North Rhine-Westphalia and have spent time there as he was growing up.
At least 58 people were killed and nearly 4000 flood victims lost homes. They were forced to seek emergency accommodation.
To help people in need, Havertz sent many gifts to his country, including EUR200,000 cash.
He hopes to raise more money for Red Cross Germany by selling the Nike boots he designed. They are in the colours North Rhine-Westphalia flag’s green, white and red colors. Ninety nine pairs of other pairs will also be sold in order to raise funds for charity.
The shirt of attacking midfielder Havertz will be available for auction starting Sunday, August 22nd through Friday, August 27, via Charity Stars. Donations can also be made to the Red Cross’s donation page.
Havertz stated that he is in a very fortunate position and hopes that by starting this campaign to support the Red Cross Germany, others will be inspired to do their best to help.
“My limited-edition boots are a sign that I stand with the people who are suffering. They show that I think of them and stand with them.
“I was shocked to see the images. It’s hard to imagine what these people are going through, but I knew I had got to do something.
“By donating money to Red Cross Germany, we can aid them with their relief and assistance efforts in the field to ensure that it reaches those who need it most.
“I would like to thank 11TeamSports, for all their support with logistics and for contributing all the money from sales to this campaign.
