Euro 2016 winner Ronaldo launches new selfie app to help kids in needs

Every football fan dreams of taking a selfie with Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo. That dream is now set to become a reality with the launch of CR7Selfie, the mobile app. Ronaldo recently launched the app in which fans can take selfies with the Portuguese legend in a variety of poses and outfits and share it with friends and family.

The app is available on Apple App and Google Play and will cost $1.99 to download. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Save the Children organisation which deals with giving children around the world a healthy start in life and an opportunity to learn.

The man of the moment Cristiano, said in an interview after the launch, "I am thrilled to launch this app to engage with my fans in a new way. From the very beginning, I knew that I wanted this app to support a charitable cause I believe in. I have been involved with Save the Children for several years now and knew they were the best partner for this app.

“As a father and Global Artist Ambassador for Save the Children, I am committed to working towards giving all children a better and brighter future. I invite everyone to be a fan with a cause, so be sure to download the app, take a selfie with me anytime, anywhere and everywhere – and at the same time help kids in need!"

Fans have the opportunity to select from 68 different photos of Ronaldo in various outfits and guises and apply up to 39 different filters. Fresh photos will be available throughout the year through in-app purchases worth 99 cents.

The Euro 2016 winner was named a Global Artist Ambassador for Save the Children in January 2013 and has worked tirelessly to shine a spotlight on their most pressing needs. President and CEO of Save the children, Carolyn Miles, who was delighted with the launch said, "We are so grateful to Cristiano Ronaldo for this new partnership and the work he has done in bringing attention to children’s issues around the world."

She went on to talk about the global problem faced by children, "One in 11 children is out of school worldwide. Refugee children fare even worse; they are five times more likely to be out of school than non-refugee children. Education is critical to helping children build opportunities for success, as well as realise their dreams.

“Together, this partnership and the power of social media can have an incredible impact on children globally, opening the door to learning and other opportunities to put them on the path to reach their full potential."
