I wonder how many people will see the rainbow and think it's the Gay Pride one? There are bound to be some idiot away fans who start calling them *******es.

Nice idea, though they are not the first. FC Barcelona used to have UNICEF as the main logo on their shirts before they succumbed to the Qatar deal. The logo is still there, though much smaller, and they still donate €1.5 million a year.

Each colour represents something, but the rainbow does represent the gays rights rainbow, and some idiots will call them *******es, and despite this they are going ahead with the idea!

Es la bandera arcoíris que va a luchar contra la homofobia, en una batalla que empieza esta tarde. La vamos a llevar presente y con mucho orgullo. También veis una serie de lazos, pues cada color va a representar una causa. De cada camiseta que se venda, siete euros van a ser donativo a cada una de las siete organizaciones", anadió Presa. La franja roja pretenderá luchar contra el sida, la naranja intentará estar al lado de los discapacitados, el amarillo estará a favor de la esperanza, el verde al cuidado del planeta y el medio ambiente, el azul a favor de la prevención del abuso contra los niños, mientras que el morado representará a la lucha contra la violencia de género. Por ello, el Rayo ha decidido donar un euro a diferentes asociaciones que apoyan a estas causas.

Looks like we're on a roll!!

Saudi Arabian Prince donates fortune to charity
Saudi prince to donate $32bn fortune to charity - BBC News
Well it's always nice to hear of very rich people doing good things with their money, though it would be even nicer if they weren't able to stockpile such obscene sums in the first place.

I notice one of the aims of the Saudi prince's international foundation is to "empower women". Perhaps he should start on his own doorstep?
