TOKYO - Former Italy striker Alessandro
del Piero has gone into the T-shirt business to help raise money
for quake-stricken parts of northern Japan, local media reported
The Juventus player has launched a line of T-shirts
emblazoned with the Japanese and Italian flags and the Chinese
character "Tomo" (friends) for 15 euros each.
"I have so many beautiful memories from the 2002 World Cup
(in Japan and South Korea)," Del Piero was quoted as saying in
the Nikkan Sports newspaper.
"My heart hurts to think about (quake-hit) Sendai, where we
had our training camp," added the 36-year-old. "I would like to
ask as many people as possible to support this project."
More than 11,000 people were killed by a 9.0 magnitude
earthquake and the devastating tsunami that followed on March
11, while over 15,000 are still missing.
