Good News Kylian Mbappe Donates Every Penny of World Cup Earnings to Charity
#1
Quote:The French soccer team claimed a 4-2 victory against Croatia during yesterday’s World Cup final, but one of their “wonderkid” players is winning hearts for showing his true character off the field.

19-year-old Kylian Mbappe, who is a forward player for the team, made roughly $22,500 for each of the seven games that France played in the World Cup. On top of that, he was given a $350,000 bonus for winning the tournament, which totals up to half a million in earnings.

But instead of relishing his winnings, he is donating 100% of the money to charity.

The Premiers de Cordee charity helps disabled and hospitalized children into sports. Mbappe has been supporting the charity since June 2017.

“Kylian, he’s a great person,” Sebastien Ruffin, general manager of the charity, told Le Parisien.

“When his schedule allows it, he intervenes for us with pleasure,” he added. “He has a very good [relationship] with children, he always finds the right [words] to encourage them. I sometimes even feel that [he] takes more pleasure to play with the kids than the kids themselves.”

Mbappe also showed his true colors by paying respect to his predecessors. Upon becoming the second youngest soccer player to score in a World Cup final, Brazilian soccer legend Pelé posted to Twitter saying: “If Kylian keeps equalling my records like this I may have to dust my boots off again…”

Mbappe’s humble response? “The king will always be the king.”

"Death."
