Danny Ings receives touching card from a participant in his disability project (Pics)

If you weren't already aware, Danny Ings is one of the loveliest guys in football today.

The Liverpool striker may out for the season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament, but that doesn't mean he's sat around feeling sorry for himself.

The former Burnley works tirelessly to help those less fortunate than himself, and even has his own organisation to help young individuals with disabilities.

Danny Ings Project-0466

Whilst at the Lancashire club, Ings launched the Danny Ings Disability Sports Project, a initiative dedicated to helping disabled children across Burnley, Pendle and Rossendale.

"And whatever happens in my career I will be setting up projects wherever I am. This is the start of many projects that I want to get going in my career. 

"And the bigger profile I can get, the more children of disabilities I can work with."
