As chatsubo writes below, George Weah is a perfect example:
Children across the world emulate his grace on the field but it is his presence and charity off the field that has caught the attention of the world.George Weah was allowed to dream as a child.He dreamt about playing in the World Cup.Now, he is allowing an entire nation to dream of peace and prosperity, through the adventures of a little soccer team from Liberia.In a world where money talks and where top players in the world put pressure on national clubs demanding huge paychecks before they put on national colors, George Weah would rather give millions of his own money to help fund the Lone Stars, the Liberian National Team, on their quest for a World Cup berth.Liberia, a country that has been dealing with a violent civil war for the past decade, was threatened to be taken off the world soccer map.The reason it hasn't is George Weah.
Not only has George Weah spent his own money buying uniforms for his team, paying for airplane tickets and even paying coaching fees, he has spent money in creating charity foundations that will help people in his poverty stricken Liberia and other nations in Africa.He has set up the George Weah foundation in which proceeds from Lone Star exhibition games are set aside to help those affected by the Liberian Civil War.He is serving as a chairman for UNICEF as one of its special sports representatives and serves as an ambassador for the SOS Children's Village Enneralde, South Africa.Most importantly he has dedicated himself to a charity that deals with much more than money.
The money that George Weah, former AC Milan striker received during his career, was enough to finance (thanks to Mr Weah) the entire national structure of Liberian football.

International soccer star, George Manneh Weah, knows all about the needs of children in difficult circumstances. He grew up in Liberia's impoverished capital, Monrovia, where he first learned to play soccer with home-made rag balls.
Weah became a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador on 7 April 1997. "Today one of my dreams has come true - to become part of the UNICEF family," he said.

In March 1998, in collaboration with the Italian Committee for UNICEF, Weah launched a CD called Lively Up Africa involving the singer Frisbie Omo Isibor and eight other African football stars.
George Weah has had an extraordinary international soccer career, most notably with the prestigious Italian club AC Milan, with whom he won the Golden Ball award (for the best European player) and the Italian National Championship. In the same year soccer's international ruling body, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), named him World Player of the Year in 1995, and in 1996 he won FIFA's Fair Play Award. He went on to play for UK premiership sides Chelsea and Manchester City. He currently plays in the United Arab Emirates for the club Al-Jazira.
Weah is President of the Junior Professionals, a team he founded in Monrovia in 1994.

CDC McGill: George Weah Will Contest Montserrado Senatorial Election in 2014, 1 Jan 2014 [cached]
The Congress for Democratic Change has officially announced that Ambassador George Weah, its political leader, will contest the senatorial election of 2014, confirming recent rumours swirling around Liberian political circles. Speaking on a local radio talk show Monday Jan. 7, the Secretary General of the party, Nathaniel McGill, confirmed that Ambassador Weah will contest the Montserrado County senatorial race, but fell short of clarifying the fate of the incumbent senior senator of Montserrado County, Joyce Freeman Sumo.
Weah has not released any listing of eleven persons constituting the secretariat that should aid him in his drive to reconcile the country as the newly-appointed Liberian peace ambassador.
Weah for constituting a secretariat of eleven persons that did not include any member of the Muslim community. Rep. Kanneh argued that such move was a dangerous trend, and that the ambassador's action amounted to downplaying the significant roles of Liberian Muslims in the reconciliation of the entire nation. But the CDC Secretary General described the lawmaker's comments as untrue, stating that Amb. Weah had officially begun constituting his reconciliation team.
