Everton’s Richarlison sends kids to a math competition
Everton forward Richarlison is currently on international duty with Brazil.
Richarlison will be hoping to impress for his country at this summer’s Copa America.
Brazil open the competition on Friday against Bolivia.
Prior to the start of the Copa America, Richarlison has made a fabulous donation.
As confirmed by Globo, the Everton star reacted to an appeal on Twitter from students from his home town of Nova Venécia regarding a math competition in Taiwan.
After being invited to the Mathematical Olympiad, the students realised they couldn’t afford to go.
The cost of participating was valued at R$50,000 (a little over 10,000 pounds).
A call was put out on social media for help with funding the trip, and Richarlison has stepped up to foot the bill.

Mesut Ozil’s wedding request
View this post on Instagram
Many fans have asked me, my close relatives and friends about our wishes for tomorrow’s wedding. As a professional footballer I am in a fortunate and privileged position. However, I invite everyone who is willing and able to help to support a very special project close to both of our hearts that we will undertake with @big.shoe11! 🙏🏼 Amine and I will bear the expenses for surgeries of 1000 children in need. I’d be happy if in addition, many more treatments all over the world can be fulfilled. If you would like to help this good cause, please click the link in my bio. I have really taken the team at BigShoe and the passion they treat their young patients with to my heart. BigShoe works alongside German and Swiss Doctors to help children all around the world by providing life changing surgeries. Burns, club feet & clefts are medical conditions that developing countries struggle to treat due to lack of doctors, money and medicine. We have already worked together for surgeries in Brazil (Worldcup 2014), in Africa (2016) and in Russia (2018). Now we want to go the next step and help children worldwide. 🙏🏼❤ #M1Ö @gulseamine
