By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

I did this article on Glasgow Celtic Football Club, my club, my first love, the reason my childhood made me smile, the memories I have for a lifetime, the reason I played football from the age of 8 till 23. Sadly my playing career was cut short when I was tackled hard and my left leg was left in an ‘L’ shape leaving me in agony today still and stopping me doing what every kid in Europe and around the World wants to do, that’s play Football. I did this article https://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/10/26/glasgow-celtic-fc-more-than-just-a-football-club-we-are-a-people-for-my-friends-around-the-world/

The Famous Green and White 'Hoops'

The Famous Green and White ‘Hoops’

Had it not been for my love and passion of the “Celt’s” I would have stopped,I never, I went on to manage and coach football teams for 15 years before the pain won, now I write Football in many places, I love it, it’s all I have left of football. Celtic are a club open to any supporter, any fan, any player. Unlike other football clubs in Scotland we pride ourselves not just on our Irish roots but also opening our club up to the World. We have players from playing for us as I type from Honduras, Israel, Serbia, Norway, Nigeria, Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, Sweden, Belgium, Holland, Bulgaria, Poland, Italy, The Czech Republic, Australia, Iceland, Finland,Wales, Republic Of Ireland, Northern Ireland, England and of course Scotland. All the players who pull on the famous Green and White Hoops are from all these countries. Some are in the 1st team, some in the under 20 team, some are out on loan, but this diversity my club has given us a Football Club open to anyone. We do charity events all over the World, we have Football Academies all over Earth, Our International Partners are Worldwide,  Boston, New Jersey, Florida, San Diego Football Academy, St Louis, all the USA. We have supporters clubs in Australia, Canada, USA, Ireland, Africa, India, Japan, China, Russia and many in South America. We touch ever part of the globe.

Celtic and charity, Celtic was initially founded to raise money for the poor in the East End of Glasgow and the club still retain strong charitable traditions today.
On 9 August 2011 Celtic held a testimonial match in honour of former player John Kennedy. Due to the humanitarian crisis in East Africa, the entire proceeds were donated to Oxfam. An estimated £300,000 was raised.
In 1995 the Celtic charity fund was formed with the aim of “revitalising Celtic’s charitable traditions” and to August 2011 has raised over £3 million.
Celtic hold an annual charity fashion show at Celtic Park. In 2011 the main beneficiaries were Breast Cancer Care Scotland.
Yorkhill Hospital is another charity with whom Celtic are affiliated and in December 2011 the club donated £3000 to it. Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said that; “Celtic has always been much more than a football club and it is important that, at all times we play an important role in the wider community. The club is delighted to have enjoyed such a long and positive connection with Yorkhill Hospital.”


This is why I am proud to say “We Are Celtic Football Club”

Patients’ families remember Robin Williams as ‘comedic Mother Theresa’

As a medical student who used humor to help his patients, Robin Williams’ role in “Patch Adams” was touching and memorable. But his laughter-as-medicine approach wasn’t just limited to the silver screen. The kindness he brought to real-life patients, said their family members, was truly unforgettable. “He’s really the comedic Mother Theresa,” Garry Kravit said He would know. In 2001, Kravit’s nephew, David Buist, received a terrible diagnosis: hepatosplenic T-cell lymphoma. This aggressive form of cancer is so rare that, according to the National Institutes of Health, “standard treatment has yet to be established.”

Kravit’s nephew met the devastating diagnosis with determination. “David said that he didn’t want to just disappear” Kravit said in a CNN iReport submission, “and decided that he would help build a new Ronald McDonald house in New York before anything happened to him.” Kravit, who met Williams at an event, reached out asking for autographed items to help with the fund-raising effort. Williams did that– and much more.

Calls that made a difference

As Buist’s condition deteriorated, Williams would call him, Kravit recalled. “When David was suffering at his worst, Robin would call him to perk him up. David treasured Robin’s calls and it helped to push him forward,” he said. After Buist left New York’s Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Williams invited the pair to a taping of a standup comedy special in 2004. “He hugged him and spent 20 minutes with him. He didn’t care about anything but David,” Kravit said. Buist beat his cancer and is now married with children. “Robin Williams touched people’s lives in ways so significant and wonderful that it very well could be that he wasn’t even aware of how much good he did,” Kravit said.

A day to remember

Mark Cole has a similar story. He wrote to CNN iReport about the time Williams visited his daughter, who doctors said was terminally-ill. “He made her feel very special all day; it was just one-on-one” Cole said. “He really wanted to spend time with Jessica.” That visit, also in 2004, came when his daughter Jessica had only weeks left to live. Through The Make-a-Wish Foundation, she requested a visit with Williams. The 13-year-old loved the film “Mrs. Doubtfire.” But Jessica, stricken with a brain tumor, couldn’t make the trip to see the actor; her health was too fragile. So, the actor chartered a private plane to come to her Greensboro, North Carolina, home. “It must have cost $30,000, $40,000,” Cole said. Given her medical state, the girl initially had trouble understanding who she was seeing, Cole recalled. But once Williams started with the “Mrs. Doubtfire” impressions, Jessica lit up. Cole said the actor spent the whole day cracking jokes, watching a Carolina Panthers game and playing cards with Jessica. “I couldn’t believe it,” he said. “I felt very privileged that he came to spend the day with her like that. It was the most moving thing I’ve ever seen in my life.” Jessica passed away about two weeks later.

A stunning blow

Cole said when he heard about Robin Williams death, “I cried for half an hour.” “You don’t meet very many good people like that.” The actor’s death Monday at age 63 was a stunning blow not just to his fans but for patients he brought smiles to. He was a long-time supporter of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, appearing in multiple campaigns for the facility. “Mr. Williams generously gave his time to raise awareness and funds for St. Jude and for our patients battling childhood cancer,” the hospital said in a statement. “His humor brought bright smiles and laughter to our patients and families and his generosity deeply touched the hearts of all who knew him.”
