Lionel Messi scored two goals and helped create another as Barcelona beat Sevilla 3-0, and as he celebrated his first goal, he traced under his right eye with two fingers.

Why did he do this? Well, because he, along with FC Barcelona, the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital in Barcelona, and the IESE business school, are raising funds to build a state-of-the-art pediatric cancer center in Barcelona.

Watch the video:

The SJD Pediatric Cancer Center Barcelona would be the largest of its kind in Europe. It would help around 400 kids each year and provide cutting-edge treatment.
