Have you heard of the organization Make-A-Wish? They provide wishes to children with life threatening illnesses, and they bring hope back to many families.
If you’ve had the privilege of working with them, chances are you have gotten more out of working with them than you have been able to give back. They’re just that great!
Michael Jordan is in a similar boat, but he sure is trying to give back. He just donated $10 Million to the Make-A-Wish Foundation for his 60th Birthday. It’s the largest donation by an individual in the organization’s 43 year history.
In a statement, Jordan said, “For the past 34 years, its been an honor to partner with Make-A-Wish and help bring a smile and happiness to so many kids. Witnessing their strength and resilience during such a tough time in their lives has truly been an inspiration.”
Jordan has served as Make-A-Wish’s Chief Wish Ambassador since 2008. He is one of the all time wish granters in the program.
