Lebron James Family Foundation

LJ23: Scoring by Assisting Others

You may remember the controversy over Vogue Magazine cover with Lebron James and Gisele Bundchen. His gorilla like pose dribbling a basketball with a tiny white woman in his other arm. Some called it disturbing or a racial stereotype, others called it honoring the two at the climax of their career. But Lebron has been focused on other things; like the Lebron James Family Foundation. This non-profit organization mission is to empower children to be physically fit, academically focused and environmentally aware, and empowers single parent families to succeed. Some of the programs of the foundation include: King for Kids Bikeathon, State Farm 50 Million Pound Challenge, Meal and A Movie, and more. Lebron has impacted over 4,000 children and their families and raised over 1million dollars in donations including cash and in kind.

Lebron you are great!! Keep doing what you are doing!
