The actr, Eduardo Verástegui, completely shaved his head in a gesture of empathy with children suffering from cancer. This during the night of Telethon 2021, where more than 300 million pesos were collected, as announced at the end of Saturday’s broadcast, although donations are still being received at the moment.
It was in this Telethon organized by Televisa that Verástegui decided to undergo the drastic change of look for a good cause. Later, on his Instagram account, he wrote a message about the reasons why he decided to shave.
“For the children! For the MILESTONE! For Telethon! Because we are all one when our hearts overflow and we embrace the same cause and the same fight! A few days ago, I went back to visit the Telentón Children’s Hospital of Oncology, in Querétaro “, said Eduardo, who also narrated that he was moved by infants who are also cancer patients.
“Sharing with the child-warriors who fight non-stop every day, motivated me to do something to get closer to them. I know this is a small thing, but shaving my hair is a way of saying: ‘I admire you, I am with you’”He continued in the post.
In addition, Verástegui wrote about the song he composed inspired by the life stories of children with cancer and reported that all the money raised by this single will be donated to this cause.
“While they cut my hair, we invited everyone to contribute to Telethon. We set a goal number, but it was widely exceeded, thanks to the generosity of the Mexican people who donated”, He concluded in the message in which he made reference to other platforms that participated in the event.
In this same sense, the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), called on Mexicans to participate in the Telethon. Despite the fact that he previously ruled against the foundation.
Through a message recorded on video from the National Placio, which was broadcast during the telethon 2021 broadcast, AMLO invited Mexicans to contribute resources because “It is not only a matter of the government or the directors of Teletón. It’s everyone’s business “, he expressed.
“Friends, friends, I respectfully call on you to participate in the Telethon on Saturday and Sunday. It is a very noble, very human task, helping people with disabilities. We are doing it from the government. I am very proud because a million girls and boys with different abilities are being supported, they are being supported with a pension, but that is not enough”, He mentioned.
In the message, López Obrador announced the signing of an agreement with this foundation and clarified that “In the case of Teletón it will be an exception, because we are going to establish communication, we have already advanced a collaboration agreement so that more children are received at the Teletón Centers and that they can be treated with rehabilitation therapy”.
He also assured that has full confidence in the directors of the foundation, especially in its president, Fernando Landeros Verdugo, “who is a man full of goodness with a social dimension,” he said.
However, in social networks, some users recalled that years ago AMLO wrote a tweet against the Telethon: “Not with all the Televisa in the world could Televisa compensate for the serious damage caused to the people of Mexico as part of the power mafia”He wrote through the social network in 2014.
