Schmeichel helps with big coronadonation

The vulnerable can count on Kasper Schmeichel.

The Danish landsholdskeeper has in recent years made a virtue out of using a part of his fortune to help others - and these coronatider is no different.

So has Leicester-the profile chosen to donate 20,000 pounds - good 160.000 dollars - to a fund in Leicester helps elderly people in their daily lives, there is certainly not been easier, after that England, like other european countries is shut down.

'The amazing Kasper Schmeichel has donated massive 20,000 pounds to our #LeicsCovidCara campaign, so we can buy omsorgspakker, phone calls and home visits, so that older people can feel safe and secure,' writes the association Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland on his Twitter profile.

Kasper Schmeichel is already behind the fund 'Fodboldfonden', who runs the social arrangemeneter for children in Denmark.

in Addition, he is also a part of the Manchester United star Juan Matas initiative 'Common Goal', where rich football players commit to donate at least one percent of his salary for charitable work in vulnerable areas.

In this regard, he said that there was a reason, that he shared out of his money:

- One of my biggest goal is not only to be remembered as a footballer.

- When I stop, I would like to continue with the kind of work and hopefully make a real difference for those who are less fortunate than me.

the Donation is not, however, something that really shakes Kasper Schmeichels economic foundation. He earns up to 50 million dollars per year in Leicester.
