A few months back Lebron James' charity was contrasted with the lack thereof of the greatest basketball player of all time; Jordan has responded with a first step toward charity.
"Michael Jordan on Tuesday named several Chicago-area charities he has picked to benefit from his recently settled legal battle with the Jewel-Osco and Dominick’s grocery chains.
"Fittingly, the Chicago Bulls great said he has chosen 23 charitable organizations that will receive the net proceeds from the undisclosed settlement. They include After School Matters, the award-winning arts and education program founded by former Chicago first lady Maggie Daley, and The Ounce of Prevention Fund, led by Illinois first lady Diana Rauner.
“'I care deeply about the city of Chicago and have such incredible memories from my years there,' Jordan said in a statement. 'The 23 charities I’ve chosen to make donations to all support the health, education and well-being of the kids of Chicago. Chicago has given me so much, and I want to give back to its kids — the city’s future.'"--Jon Seidel, The Chicago Sun-Times
