Basketball legend Michael Jordan does more for the Chicago youth than provide them with classic tennis shoes. Recently, the former Bulls champion won an $8.9 million lawsuit against a popular supermarket chain, Dominicks, for using Jordan’s likeness without his permission. Instead of spending his winnings on himself, Jordan decided to give back to the city that helped make him a basketball legend. On giving back to Chicago charities, Jordan said:
The 23 charities I’ve chosen to make donations to all support the health, education and well being of kids of Chicago. Chicago has given me so much and I want to give back to its kids–the city’s future.
Though Jordan has had his selfish, and downright mean, moments (e.g., his arrogance during his Basketball Hall of Fame Acceptance Speech), this is a shining moment for the North Carolina native.
Hopefully, the love continues to flown from one of the Greatest of All Time.
