David Beckham to donate salary to children's charity

Jan 31 2013, 1:06pm CST | by

David Beckham will donate his entire $230,000 a week salary to a children's charity.

The former LA Galaxy soccer star has signed a five month contract with Paris St Germain and announced he will not be paid during his time there but has instead made provisions for the money to go to a charity in France's capital city.

Speaking at a press conference in Paris on Thursday (01.31.13), David said: "For me it's always been about playing football, I considered other offers on the table. But one of the reasons I wanted to come to Paris was quite unique.

"We've decided my salary will go towards a local children's charity in Paris and that's one of the things we're very excited and proud to be able to do. I'm not sure it's been done before but it's something I'm very passionate about.

"I'm pleased that we can give a huge sum to a children's charity in Paris - it's very special."

David, 37, also revealed his wife Victoria, 38, and children - Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, Cruz, seven, and 18-month-old Harper - won't move to Paris with him as the boys are settled into schools in London.

He said: "I am excited it's something that we've been talking about for quite a while and now it's finally happened. My wife and children will be staying in London because the children go to school there now.'
