Zlatan Ibrahimović is a world-famous soccer player.

If you live outside of the United States, you probably know him better as a "footballer."

After scoring a goal at a Feb. 14, 2015 match, he removed his jersey to reveal the names of 50 people tattooed on his arms and chest. The temporary tattoos represent 50 of the 805 million people in the world suffering from hunger.

Ibrahimović was issued a one-game suspension for "unsportsmanlike behavior."

But he thought it was totally worth it. And I do too.

Any time a famous person lends their time to a cause, they can be accused of hunting for publicity. But in moments like these, what does that matter?

Ibrahimović knows exactly how big of a problem world hunger is (11.5% — more than a tenth of the world). And now, so do you.
