#GreenAtHeart – LeBron James Donates $41 Million To Send 1,100 Kids To College

NBA star, LeBron James has reportedly donated an unprecedented $41 million to put 1,100 Ohio kids through college. FORTY ONE MILLION!

The remarkable offering is part of his partnership with the University Of Akron, in which kids enrolled in his “I Promise” program will have the opportunity to receive a fully guaranteed four-year college scholarship.

Students enrolled in the program will need to first graduate high school within Akron’s public school system and achieve standard testing requirements, as well as fulfill some sort of community service obligation- which students will gladly do for a free ride to college.

“It’s the reason I do what I do. These students have big dreams, and I’m happy to do everything I can to help them get there. They’re going to have to earn it, but I’m excited to see what these kids can accomplish knowing that college is in their futures.” – LeBron James

#GreenAtHeart – Drake gave away the entire $1 million budget for his new music video

Drake’s new music video for “God’s Plan” is making waves, but not just because of his chart-topping song.

Rather, it’s because the rapper gave away the project’s entire $996,631.90 budget, which he chronicles throughout the video.

The next six minutes feature Drake handing out stacks of cash to people on the street, delivering toys to the children of Miami’s Lotus House, surprising a family with a brand new car and providing a scholarship to a student at the University of Miami, among other acts of kindness.

After they moved on to get their their blood glucose levels checked and then went for consultation with the doctors. Some were given drugs because they were reactive to malaria. Breast screening was done as well for the women.
