Conor McGregor is without a doubt one of the biggest stars in the sports. His profile and charisma have made him hundreds of millions of dollar.
With all the money he has made, he has also donated huge sums of money to the charities over the years and those in needs. The most recent case being the one where he has donated ₹10 Lakhs to help treat an Irish baby girl with a genetic condition. Evie who turned one last Friday is suffering from microcephaly and the money is being raised for her treatment in the US.
A boxing club in Ireland raised ₹10 Lakhs for the baby and recently McGregor was asked if he would match the club’s donation to which the former champion happily agreed to match it.
Bra Brady who is the boxing coach for the Crumlin Boxing club said, “We got €500 for the gloves and being a bit cheeky I asked if he would match whatever we made and he said it was no problem.”
In an interview with the Irish Mirror, Evie’s mother Emma Nolan
said, “The time and effort put into the Crumlin boxing fundraiser was unbelievable and I would like to thank Katie, Sinead, Bra, Aaron and Phil and all involved in the club.
“They really went above and beyond on the day and we are forever grateful.
“It was not by any means a publicity stunt from Mcgregor as he did not even what to be mentioned, we can’t thank Conor enough for helping our little girl.
“We can not get over how much our little community has pulled together to help Evie reach her target, with hitting well over her target this now means Evie can go to Virginia [Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute Neuromotor Research Clinic] for very intense treatment in Feb 2020.
“I would like to thank every person who has taking the time to donate to our baby girl.” (H/T – Irish Mirror)
