Reid to auction World Cup souvenirs

Reid, who plays for West Ham United in the English Premier League, does not have any family or friends who have been affected by the tragedy but would still like to do his part to help out.
He told reporters prior to West Ham’s upset 3-1 win over Liverpool on Sunday that he already had a few things in mind.
“I’m trying to sort some stuff out for the people back home at the moment,” he said.
“I’ll be auctioning some things for charity. I have a few contacts down there so I’ll see what I can do. I’ll be auctioning jerseys, boots and some other signed items. There might be some of my things from the World Cup too.”
The 22-year-old is not the only New Zealand star doing his bit for the cause.
All Whites captain Ryan Nelsen was born and raised in Christchurch and many of his family members still live in the South Island city. As a mark of respect to everybody involved in the disaster, Nelsen wore a black armband for his Blackburn Rovers club in their Premier League game against Aston Villa yesterday.
The day did not quite go to plan for Nelsen and his side though – Rovers lost 4-1 and the defender was sent off late in the match for a second bookable offence.
