Messi Ralph Pawren has been nominated the mascot for OGCDC.
Messi was chosen because of the optimal hearing that dogs have as they can hear many more sounds than humans. They can also localise sounds more precisely than people.
Messi is a tiny toy poodle who lives in Australia and is a fashionista, soccer lover and enjoys dancing tango.
He is named after the famous soccer player Lionel Messi.
Messi will be parading along with other dogs in Melbourne Australia wearing different clothes to raise funds in support for the “Hear and Talk Project “to buy hearing equipment to test newborn babies. The pet fashion parade is called “PAWS FOR THE HEARING CAUSE”
This event will take place on the 19 of November 2017 at HA Smith Reserve in Hawthorn, Melbourne
Messi will also run a campaign “DONATE SOFT TOYS AND CHILDRENS CLOTHES (ages from 0-5 years) FOR THE HEARING CAUSE “hoping to obtain donations of new and used toys and timber blocks to condition children to respond to sounds.To that effect many primary local schools will be asked to gather donations of used small toys that can be shipped to Central Vietnam.
