David Beckham’s Donations
In 2013, when David Beckham was a soccer player for Paris Saint-Germain, he donated his entire salary — more than $5 million — to charity. And retirement has done nothing to slow the athlete down.
He and his wife, Victoria, run the Victoria and David Beckham Charitable Trust, which helps provide wheelchairs to children in need. Beckham also supports Help for Heroes, a charity that assists injured veterans returning from duty, and is a UNICEF goodwill ambassador.
While Beckham's image was somewhat tarnished this year by leaked emails suggesting he was using charity work to achieve knighthood, UNICEF stuck by the soccer star, praising his hard work and commitment to the cause.
