Before the World Cup started, Mesut Özil donated money to pay for the surgeries of 11 Brazilian children. The 23-man German squad went on to win the World Cup, and Özil decided to raise the number of kids he’s supporting. Özil posted this message on his Facebook page:

dear fans,

prior to the #WorldCup I supported the surgery of eleven sick children. since the victory of the #WorldCup is not only due to eleven players but to our whole team, I will now raise the number to 23. this is my personal thank-you for the hospitality of the people of Brazil.
