Hero I-league winner Ubaid CK has put up his league-winning jersey for Auction in order to raise funds for Kerala Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund to fight Covid-19.
Ubaid CK’s memorable jersey raised over Rs 33,000 at the auction and the Keralite will direct those funds to help the state government in order to fight this pandemic.
It was not an easy decision for the I-league-winning goalkeeper to auction such a memorable jersey but he has set an example for everyone that service comes before self.
“This I-League title was a historic one (for the state of Kerala). I have always dreamt of winning the title. Being a Malayali and winning it for a club from my state means a lot to me,” explained Ubaid. “So this jersey was also quite special to me, almost like a piece of heart.”
“I thought about hanging it in my house as a sovereign. But then some of my friends approached me with this idea. I thought that it would be put to better use this way. So I decided to auction it,” the 31 year old continued.
“The main aim is to garner more support for the COVID treatment from the people who can donate money,” Ubaid said to the-aiff.com. “As a result, we are seeing that almost everyone who is able to donate some money is contributing heavily to the CM’s Relief Fund.” “These are difficult times, and we can only overcome this situation by helping each other. I urge everyone that is able to help others, to go ahead and do it,” he concluded.
