The legend made the announcement on social media a month before he died. He shared a video alongside the caption:

“I have the honor to announce that on October 30, my birthday, the solidarity campaign ‘Las Diez del 10’ will start.

“That day we will be in Villa Palito, together with @CruzRojaArg, @ Diego.Tipping and the deputy @NicolasRodriguezSaa, to deliver three trucks full of hygiene items, gel alcohol, bleach and mask.

“And we are going to wire and close the paddock that bears the name of Father Bachi, so that the girls and boys can play in peace and shelter

“In addition, thanks to the National Sports Secretariat, we are going to be opening two sports schools, which will give work to many and many teachers.”
