This heart-warming gesture from Tim Southee is winning the internet!

Kiwi speedster Tim Southee, in his bid to support a girl who is suffering from relapsed Neuroblastoma, is auctioning off one of his shirts that he wore during the World Test Championship Final.

The girl named Hollie Beattie has a social page @hopeforhollie which is run by her parents to collect donations for her expensive treatment. Southee, in his effort to contribute, put the auction link on his Instagram page and requested his followers to help the little girl in any possible way.

He also appreciated the family's strength, positive attitude and perseverance in a short note he wrote alongside the photo of the shirt that also had signatures from his teammates.

The comments section of the post was lit with fans and followers appreciating the gesture from Southee.

One follower wrote, "This is why world loves kiwis," while another wrote, "Shame its already out of my financial range but good on you for helping out at such a time of great need!"
