This just speaks volumes about Michael Jordan’s character! Not only did he reach deep down inside his wallet and give a few million to better our communities after the string of police violence not long ago, but he just recently gave a hefty donation to the new African-American Museum in DC… to the tune of $5 Million Dollars!
According to the story in the Washington Post, Jordan’s gift, the largest from a sports figure to the 19th Smithsonian museum, pushes private donations to the museum to $278 million. Including federal aid, the museum, which President Obama will open Sept. 24, has raised more than $548 million!

I just love great stories like this one! Read more
