    Here's the video that was shown at the gala dinner the other night showing the different projects that Rafa's Foundation is involved in. It's great to see how much good work he's doing and you can see how much he enjoys doing it.

    Another vernonbc post telling us how very good person Nadal is. No need to make this thread. You have the Nadal news thread.

    Did mama steel your candy,Kiddo???Stop acting like a dolt who is only here to spread hate.
    Rafa already has 7 unreal slams that takes his tally to 17 slams,which makes him undisputed GOAT.

    I don't see you complaining when all the lame Roger posts are made no matter how redundant they are.

    How are people going to talk bad about someone helping people in need out?

    Only disgusting people that is for sure.

    Whether its Rafa or Fed, its sad that folks on TT have gotten so cynical that they can't appreciate the good things these guys do.

    Must be sad to live with so much hate inside (not just speaking about *******s but *******s/djoktards etc).

    That was nice, and I'm glad to see players that have foundations to help others or help in whatever way they can.

    Eh? I complain because this adds nothing new. We know rafa has a foundation. Even the most horrible people in this world, if millionarie, would have one to pay less taxes and clean his image.

    Couldn't agree more. I just can't imagine how awful it must be for some people to go through life being so sour and ugly. I try to be positive about everything but when it's positivity about Rafa it seems to drive some people batty. So sad for them.

    The goal of Rafa's Foundation is to basically help socially disadvantaged kids and youths by engaging them in sports to improve their lives. It is currently affiliated with three projects, the Vicente Ferrer Foundation in Antapur, India; the Special Olympics; and the Aldeas Infantiles SOS. If anyone wants more info on these projects they can visit Rafa's foundation website. http://www.fundacionrafanadal.com/default.asp?lang=3

    Adam Helfant, ATP Executive Chairman and President honoured Nadal with the 2011 Arthur Ashe Humanitarian Award for his charitable work with his Foundation at The O2 Arena indoor stadium last month in London.

    I agree. Rafa hits from a strong athletic foundation.
