NBA Star KEVIN DURANT Makes $1 Million Pledge In Wake Of Tornado:
I was floored when I began watching coverage of the devastation in Oklahoma after the disastrous storm hit. Hearing the local news member say that ‘this was the worst tornado, damage wise, in the history of the world’ left me heartbroken. Shortly after, I watched as they tried to rescue kids buried under their school, that had collapsed on top of them. President Obama called it ‘one of the most destructive storms in our Nations’ history’. So emotional!
I salute everyone that is stepping up, donating what they can; including celebrities and high-profile public figures who can donate even more. Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder has pledged $1 Million dollars for the tornado relief through his family foundation: The Durant Family Foundation. The pledge is meant to match other donations and be an incentive for more people to give. I’m counting on other celebrities giving and matching this pledge and for Us all to pull together and give what we can. If you can’t, prayer is worth more than anything! Durant tweeted the information on how you can help. Follow him and re-tweet to your followers as well! Thanks in advance! xo @rozOonTheGo
