Loose decided that he would “support this great project.” Since then he has raised awareness for it among clubs, players, and fans. “In about six months, I’ve received 17 shirts and auctioned off 11 of them, generating €1,605 for the charity. On top of that, I’ve received single donations to the campaign amounting to €573,” he says with visible pleasure. “It’s a great feeling to be able to help.”
Loose now hopes that there are colleagues out there in the big wide world of the Volkswagen brand who are also willing to auction celebrity articles for the Kinderherzaktionen charity or donate soccer shirts to him for this purpose.
