Arguably the world’s greatest basketball player, Charlotte Hornets owner and former Chicago Bulls legend, Michael Jordan, has scored again!
The NBA Hall of Famer has made a $2 million donation to Feeding America to assist in its mission to help end hunger. The organization took to its Twitter page to share the latest contribution by Jordan.
The 6 time NBA champion has donated funds from his hit ESPN documentary that aired earlier this year, ‘The Last Dance.‘
In a written statement, Jordan said,
“In these challenging times and in a year of unimaginable difficulty due to COVID-19, it’s more important than ever to pause and give thanks. I am proud to be donating additional proceeds from The Last Dance to Feeding America and its member food banks in the Carolinas and Chicago to help feed America’s hungry.”
At the beginning of the summer, Michael Jordan and Jordan Brand committed to donating $100 million over 10 years to directly impact the fight against systemic racism. In July, the brand had announced that the donations will be focused on three priority areas: social justice, economic justice, and education and awareness.
This is why MJ is the GOAT.
