Michael Jordan isn’t known to be outspoken concerning world issues, but there are times when his actions speak louder than any of his words could.
Today, Michael Jordan made his biggest philanthropic donation ever of $7 million dollars to help medical clinics in at-risk communities in Charlotte, NC. Jordan’s spokesperson, Estee Portnoy, has stated,
“(Jordan) Feels so great about being able to impact the Charlotte community and help people who really deserve it. Michael and Novant are really excited about this project.”
Portnoy says Jordan, 54, was motivated by a study that found poor children in Charlotte have the worst odds of those of any of the top 50 cities in the United States to lift themselves out of poverty.
With everything that’s going on in the world, its refreshing to see more athletes/owners build their communities.
