David Beckham has decided to take his fancy pink soccer shoes on a 5 month tour that is sure to be one of the most philanthropic moves yet!
The 37 year old hunky dad (yep I said it) who plays midfield, signed a five-month contract with Paris Saint-Germain on Thursday. Get this, he will donate his salary to a children’s charity.
“It’s one of the things we talked about from the start, but this all happened so quick,” said Beckham, who did not disclose how much he will be paid or which group will get the money. “I thought what a great idea it would be that the salary would go to a children’s charity in Paris.”
Seriously this is one of the coolest stories I have heard of! It is amazing that someone has enough money to donate their salary! I am just so impressed by this!
“Every club I have played for throughout the world, I have been successful with. I have been successful with Manchester United, and I have always said that I would never want to play for another English club,” Beckham said. “It’s the team that I support, that I always dreamt of playing for.”
“I am very lucky. I am 37 years old and I got offered a lot of offers, more offers now than I have probably had in my career, at my age,” Beckham said. “I am very honored about that. I chose Paris because I can see what the clubs are trying to do, the players the club are trying to bring in. It’s an exciting city, always has been, always will be.”
