Ahead of his 60th birthday, Michael Jordan gives the Make-A-Wish Foundation $10 million.

In a big way, Michael Jordan is honoring his 60th birthday. The Make-A-Wish foundation received the largest donation in its 43-year history from the six-time NBA champion, who donated $10 million.
In a news release, Jordan said, “For the past 34 years, it’s been an honor to partner with Make-A-Wish and help bring a smile and happiness to so many kids. “Watching their tenacity and fortitude through such a trying time in their lives has been truly inspirational.

“Seeing others join me in supporting Make-A-Wish so that every child can experience the magic of having their wish fulfilled would be the best birthday present I could imagine receiving. ”.

$10 million was donated by Michael Jordan to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Since joining the organization in 1989, Jordan, who is widely regarded as the best basketball player of all time, has granted “hundreds” of wishes. In order to help Make-A-Wish grant the wishes of children who are waiting for them to come true, his contribution is meant to inspire others to do the same.

One of the most frequently requested celebrities for the charity is still Jordan. “Everyone is aware of Michael’s legacy on the basketball court, but it’s what he has consistently done off the court when no one is looking that makes him a true legend for wish families and the larger Make-A-Wish community,” Leslie Motter, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish America, said.

Michael’s decision to use his birthday to help grant a wish for Make-A-Wish demonstrates the strength of his character and his steadfast commitment to improving the lives of children who are suffering from life-threatening illnesses. By assisting in the fulfillment of wishes, we hope to encourage the general public to emulate him. ”.

The basketball player turns 60 on Friday. He was appointed the chief wish ambassador for Make-A-Wish in 2008. He is said to have a $1.07 billion net worth.
