French teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe will be donating his entire World Cup earnings to a charity that organises sporting events for children with disabilities, according to reports from France.
The 19-year-old reportedly earned about US$22,300 per game in the tournament and an additional US$350,000 for helping hiscountry lift the World Cup trophy on Sunday (Jul 15). His seven appearances in the month-long tournament meant that his total earnings adds up to slightly more than US$500,000, which he plans to donate to Premiers de Cordee, an association that organises sporting events for children with disabilities.
According to French newspaper L'Equipe, Mbappe is a patron of the association.
Sebastien Ruffin, Premiers de Cordee's general manager, called the wonderkid a "great person" in an interview with Le Parisien.
