Perhaps a few more of the multi-millionaire footballers could consider doing something similar, or at least make a large donation from the obscene wealth they have.
I think lots do..just you don't hear about it as the media usually don't bother with the positives things they do.
Craig Bellamy and the ex Chelsea striker Drogba for example.
Becks is lucky in someways to have positive press because he is a good guy all around with a clean image.
Beckham will be dammed whatever he does...
Its a great gesture regardless of how much he has earnt.
It came out because the question was asked at the press conference so he was honest..which is refreshing.
