Unlike Lebron James who has invested heavily in the youth of Northeast Ohio, Michael Jordan has not been known for his charity; hopefully his new endeavor begins a Jordan giving trend.
"When basketball legend Michael Jordan became majority owner of the Charlotte Hornets in 2010, he promised to rebuild the team’s connection to Charlotteans, including supporting charitable causes in the community.
"On Monday, Jordan continued his track record of making good on that pledge by unveiling a $500,000 investment in charities working with literacy. As in the past, Jordan shared the spotlight with other corporate donors, Bank of America and Lowe’s, who partnered to help promote the cause. The team didn’t supply a breakdown of how much was given by the partners."--Mark Price, The Charlotte Observer
