At just 19 years old, Kylian Mbappe has positioned himself as one of the greatest footballers on the planet and is a contender for this year’s Ballon d’Or after helping France to the World Cup title in Russia.
And despite now being a global footballing superstar, it seems like Mbappe still has his feet firmly on the ground and hasn’t forgotten his roots. The PSG striker has decided to donate his entire earnings from playing at the World Cup to a local charity working in Bondy, the neighbourhood in which he grew up on the outskirts of Paris.
Mbappe earned around 430,000 at the World Cup, which includes appearance fees and a large bonus for the winning the tournament. The 430,000 euros will go directly to Premiers de Cordees, an association that organizes sporting events for children with disabilities.
