Goals that changes lives: for each goal scored by Messi or Neymar Jr. Mastercard will donate the equivalent of 10,000 meals to @WFP to fight childhood hunger and malnutrition in Latin America and the Caribbean #TogetherWeAre10 #StartSomethingPriceless https://t.co/URfIp77ElN pic.twitter.com/Ckq61oJgld — Noticias Mastercard (@MastercardLAC) May 31, 2018
Worst PR own goal ever. If you’ve got the money.... just buy the f***ing food. How sad that the fate of a starving child rests in the foot of a multi million pound player. — Justin Lockwood (@Lockers75) June 1, 2018
Sorry kids VAR overruled it, no food today. — Joe Beck (@joseph83beck) June 1, 2018
How on earth did someone persuade MasterCard to perpetrate this tasteless stunt? — Mike Bradley (@weabod) June 1, 2018
All of a sudden being a goalkeeper means saving shots is stopping kids get the food they need?
Really bad idea from @Mastercard . If you have the cash then feed the kids. https://t.co/8Iwk4MF0xQ — Robbie Britton (@ultrabritton) June 2, 2018
This is outrageous! starving children are dependent on goals??? What is going on in this world? Is there nothing these companies will do in the name of advertising? Shame on you #Mastercard https://t.co/nhFpCJR0rW — H (@gunnerkiz) June 2, 2018
Just give the kids some food you literal hunger games villains. — Eben Bell (@deckinspectah) June 1, 2018
This is vulgar to the point of profanity.
If you can help children, help children you pathetic corporate vultures @Mastercard . #FeedTheKidsAnywayMastercard https://t.co/I0a2MiIkz4 — Aodhán Ó Ríordáin (@AodhanORiordain) June 1, 2018
Alternative: Saves that ruin lives: for every save a keeper makes against Messi or Neymar Jr. MasterCard will deny 10,000 children in Latin America and the Caribbean a meal. — Gary Oakes (@OakesGary) June 2, 2018
Some people didn’t believe it but... it’s real.
MasterCard to donate 10,000 meals for each goal scored by Messi or Neymar.
Hey guys. Just donate the f***ing meals. pic.twitter.com/2HdKqsespi — Richard Chambers(@newschambers) June 1, 2018
So, MasterCard clearly have the money. But the hungry, malnourished children only get the food if Messi & Neymar have a good World Cup?!?!?
Just for context, one month ago, MasterCard reported a 38% increase in revenue...to $3.5bn. https://t.co/tBE9jWfYXG — Jake Humphrey (@mrjakehumphrey) June 2, 2018
