    She's been supporting the Flavio Canto school for some time. The school provides free martial arts training to disadvantaged children.

    $30K donation in march 2015
    visit in September 2014 to provide judo seminars
    And now she left the belt.

    This is clearly more than a one off thing in terms of supporting that school.

    Exactly. For me this takes Ronda into the true realms of role model for sports. She has made noticeable strides in her maturity regarding trash talking - i.e. stop and think about what she says and its influence - plus she is doing genuine good because she genuinely cares. It was very apparent in her last visit how much she cared about the project and the kids that attend AND how much Brazil has embraced her. It was clear from this visit (see vid) that she was going to be supported when she fought in Brazil (at least to me anyway).

    I thought this would be obvious, she and Canto have a history with martial arts related charities in Brazil

    She definitely have a crush on him too. I read a Brazilian interview where she talks about him. I can't remember the site though.

    Thanks for posting. I had heard and wanted to know what she was gonna do with it.
    Good PR move on her part.
