It is the dreams of millions around the world to one day become a star athlete, but this is a dream that only a tiny percentage of people get to live. These stars get to play the sport that they love each day, and they earn gigantic sums through their salary and endorsements. This enables them to lead a lavish lifestyle, but most athletes realize how fortunate they are and make a point to give back. According to dosomething.org, these are the 10 most charitable athletes in the world right now, all of whom have helped to improve the world around them.
10. Richard Sherman
Richard Sherman is famous for his trash talking and arrogance (as well as being perhaps the best in his position), and this arrogance makes him a much hated figure by many NFL fans. Although on the field he may not seem like the nicest guy, he is actually very aware of the world around him and uses his fame and fortune to do good in the world. The Super Bowl champ has set up a family foundation, called Blanket Coverage, to help students reach their potential. This provides students in low-income communities with clothing and school supplies to help them all achieve their goals. Sherman decided to set this foundation thanks to an inspirational speech from Magic Johnson when he was a student himself. So just remember this next time you are screaming at your television sets when the Seahawks are on.
