Andrea Hlavackova is one of the brightest doubles player on the WTA tour, she won 3 Grand Slam titles, 2 Fed Cup with the Czech team, and an Olympic silver medal with her partner Lucie Hradecka. But despite all these success, the player from Pilsen always stayed so humble and down to earth and tries to use her celebrity in the best possible way through her foundation.
As I said, Andrea Hlavackova could just have been a great doubles player and one of the sexiest women on the WTA tour, but no, she is not this kind of girl. She really wanted to do something useful and help a good cause. That’s why she created the Andrea Hlavackova Foundation in 2012. The aim of this foundation is mainly to collect financial resources and funds in order to help the families of handicapped kids and young handicapped people with integration into the society.
And to raise money for the kids, Andrea Hlavackova regularly organises auctions on her official website andreahlavackova.com with a lot of different signed stuff like posters, official tracksuits, rackets, racket bags, skirts… It appears to be a really great idea as it can make fans and kids happy at the same time 🙂 All profits from auctions go to Hájek Center, which is in Pilsen region. Hájek Center provides to divide intensive care for a handicapped child between family and care Center and so it reduces mental and physical stress of all members of the family.
Personally I sincerely admire the work Andrea Hlavackova is doing with her foundation, because it’s obvious that it’s not a commercial thing, she is 100% involved in every decisions and takes care of everything. I remember her saying me about her foundation “ it’s like my baby 🙂 ” And it’s true, if you want to help her foundation, you can easily get in touch with her and see what to do. I heard that Andrea expects that in the future her foundation will help other similar organizations not only in Pilsen region, but all over the Czech Republic… That’s all what I wish to them !
