German World Cup champ helping sick children of Brazil

Winning a championship in any sport is a rewarding experience for an athlete.

Mesut Özil knows the feeling well. Özil helped Germany to their fourth FIFA World Cup crown earlier this month in Brazil.

Instead of blowing his World Cup bonus on frivolous endeavors, Özil is donating a reported $600,000 to pay for surgeries for 23 children in the host country.
