Sep 11 - Michael Jordan Donates $1 Million To Hurricane Relief In The Bahamas
 

 
The Bahamas were ravaged by Hurricane Dorian, but recovery efforts are getting a boost thanks to an NBA legend's huge donation.

Former Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan announced on Tuesday he will donate a whopping $1 million to relief efforts in the Bahamas.

"I am devastated to see the destruction that Hurricane Dorian has brought to the Bahamas, where I own property and visit frequently," Jordan said in a statement, shared on Twitter by his spokeswoman and manager, Estee Portnoy. "My heart goes out to everyone who is suffering and those who have lost loved ones."



Jordan said he will continue to monitor the situation in the Bahamas and will choose non-profits where his funds will have the most impact.

This is not the first time Jordan has pitched in to help hurricane relief efforts. He gave even more money and time after Hurricane Florence hit his home state of North Carolina last year.

The NBA all-star surprised residents of his hometown, Wilmington, by handing out Thanksgiving food and shoes, CBS Chicago reported. As the owner of the Charlotte Hornets, he also got the team involved in filling relief boxes in Charlotte that were shipped to areas affected by the storms.

Jordan also donated a total of $2 million to the Red Cross and the Foundation for the Carolinas' Hurricane Florence Response Fund.

A company like Disney has to have priorities. They gave trump's campaign $5 million in 2016. They need to make sure they got enough for his 2020 campaign. Got to keep those corporate tax rates low.

Speaking of trump, to make him look good, his followers have been spreading fake news.


Donald Trump didn’t donate $1 million to Hurricane Dorian victims in the Bahamas

President Donald Trump has caught flack over the past few weeks for what he’s said about Hurricane Dorian, wrongly claiming it was targeting Alabama. Meanwhile, some Facebook users have fabricated a more positive storyline about the president and the storm.

One post, published Sept. 8, claims that Trump has donated $1 million to "the relief fund" for the Bahamas, which have been devastated by Dorian.

The image, which shows small vignettes of Trump and what appears to be hurricane damage on a blue background, was posted in a group dedicated to the QAnon conspiracy theory.

The post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. And it has been shared several hundred times in several different formats, so we wanted to check it out.

We reached out to the Facebook user who shared the post to see where they got it, but we haven’t heard back.


I'm surprised one of his followers didn't post that on here. It goes with their stories about the wall being built, the US "winning" the trade war with China and ISIS being defeated. Can't wait to see what amazing feats they are going to claim trump has accomplished next.

I like the charles Barkley approach oppose to just handing money over and not seeing what's made of it.
