Harvey has left tens of thousands of people homeless, with destroyed property, caused horrific injury, and has resulted in 50 deaths to date.
I could not continue to watch the tragedy unfold without doing something to help. In the spirit of recognizing that we should all have each other's backs in times of need, I challenge and encourage my family, friends, followers, classmates and basketball community to make a donation to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. For all my young bulls out there, instead of begging your parents to buy you a new pair of sneakers or the latest gear, ask them to donate that money to the families of Houston. And for all the OG's out there, we're counting on you all to lead the way!
The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund is an organization established by Sylvester Turner, the Mayor of Houston and County Judge Ed Emmett. The Fund will funnel through the Greater Houston Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity. Every penny donated will go straight to the Fund.
It's bigger than me, it's bigger than us. Let's make a positive difference! As my parents always taught me, "To Whom Much Has Been Given, Much Is Expected."
