Though Kylian Mbappé was already turning heads and lighting up the pitch at Parc des Princes, the 19-year-old has shot into the national limelight after this summer’s 2018 FIFA World Cup tournament, winning over football and non-football fans alike. Having helped led Les Bleus to their second World Cup victory, along with being named the tournament’s best young player, Mbappé will be making another big statement: the breakout star will be donating all his World Cup winnings to charity.

During the tournament Mbappé made roughly $22,300 USD per match plus a reported $350,000 USD bonus for winning the Final against Croatia on Sunday night. Roughly adding up to $500,000 USD, Mbappé will be donating the money to Premiers de Cordée, a charity that provides free sports instruction to disabled children and hospitalized children. Mbappé signed with Paris Saint-Germain in August of 2017 and makes $1.7 million USD a month.

“Kylian, he’s a great person,” said Sebastien Ruffin, general manager of Premiers de Cordee. “When his schedule allows it, he intervenes for us with pleasure. 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.”
