German soccer star Mesut Özil donates his $400K World Cup bonus 

Mesut Özil, the midfielder for Germany’s World Cup-winning team, just set an example that all stars need to see.
After Germany won the final, each player received a bonus of more than $400,000. (Spain, for instance, had proposed a $980,000 winning bonus, to great outcry.) Instead of keeping his portion, however, Özil donated it all to support the surgeries of sick Brazilian children.

JACK WHITE HAVING FUN

Never got over Dave Martinez leaving.

Last night, NY Jets Wide Receiver David Nelson hosted a launch party for his organization i’mME at Hotel Chantelle in NYC. Even with training camp starting tomorrow, New York Jets players Geno Smith, Eric Decker, Bilal Powell, and Jalen Saunders were all in attendance at the Super-Hero themed event to support David and the organization.

i’mME was founded by Nelson and his two brothers in 2013 after a moving trip to Haiti. The cause works to support orphans in Haiti through creating new infrastructure and providing program resources. David spoke to the crowd addressing his passion for these children and the difference he knows this organization can make.
