Mesut Ozil donates prize money to "struggling projects in Brazil"

Mesut Ozil  has to be commended  for his latest gesture – after reportedly donating his £240,000 World Cup winnings to projects in Brazil.
The German players were each promised the hefty sum ahead of the tournament if they won the competition in Brazil, which they achieved thanks to Mario Gotze’s extra-time goal against Argentina at the Maracana last week.
And Ozil decided to donate his bonus for a good cause after the Arsenal star’s representative told AP that the 25-year-old had given his money to ‘projects in Brazil.’

Story spreading on Ozil WC winnings not true. @MesutOzil1088's spokesman told @AP that Ozil's donating money to projects in Brazil NOT Gaza

Reports had earlier claimed that the midfielder – who is of Turkish descent and a practising Muslim – had donated the money to the children of Gaza, but, his representative has since denied the story.
