A super initiative from 19-year-old Félix Auger-Aliassime, as he announces a charitable endeavor to help children in his father’s homeland of Togo.
“I feel very lucky to have had a hugely satisfying career so far. But I think it’s time to bring more meaning to it, beyond tennis,” the Canadian said in a video unveiling his #FAAPointsForChange campaign.
With every point he wins during the 2019 season, Auger-Aliassime will donate $5. Major tennis sponsor BNP Paribas will triple that, chipping in $15 for every point.
Together, they’ll tackle the protection and education of children that African country.
Auger-Aliassime says they hope to reach some 2,500 Togolese kids.
“I hope it’s only the start of a great adventure,” he says.
