19 year old, France striker Kylian Mbappe will be giving his world Cup bonus to charity says Sebastien Ruffin, director general of Premiers de Cordee, a charity organization the Youngster has identified with.
Premiers de Cordée association is a charity organization that supports children with disabilities play sport. After helping his team with a brace , qualify for the quarterfinal, he will be donating a about €20000 to the organization.
“The player’s entourage and his family made us aware of his gesture a few days ago,” Sebastien Ruffin, director general of Premiers de Cordée, said: “We do not want to go any further than that, because the bonus will only be paid if France reach the quarterfinals. In any case, we are touched by Kylian’s gesture. This is something very personal — we never ask for any financial help from our ambassadors.
“It is a bit premature to talk about what we might use the money for. However, we will know more once it is guaranteed.
“Kylian is a great person. When his schedule allows him to, enjoys getting involved with us. He is very good with the children and always finds the right words to encourage them. Sometimes, I even feel like he enjoys playing with the kids more than the kids themselves!”
