    That is awesome. I was already a huge fan of KD but this is amazing to see a player not just talk about helping but be about it.

    That’s probably the worst charity he could have picked to give money to…it’s the thought that counts though.

    For those wondering why I would say that…just google red cross scandal. Here is a smidgen.

    “A congressional investigation revealed that–though it had promised that all 9/11 donations would all go to victims’ families–the Red Cross held back more than half of the $543 million. During congressional hearings, Rep. Billy Tauzin (R-La.)–soon to become a lobbyist for Big Pharma–declared: “What’s at issue here is that a special fund was established for these families. It was specially funded for this event, September 11. And it is being closed now because we’re told enough money’s been raised in it, but we’re also told, by the way, we’re going to give two-thirds of it away to other Red Cross needs.”Healy was forced to resign, and her successors promised to allocate all of the money to September 11 survivors and their families.”

    all those who are making big $$$ on the daily need to step up their game to help those who now have nothing

    Could have been more choosy on your charity choice, but good on you KD.
    Look into Geo-engineering if your a curious person ya’ll.

    Great gesture by Durant. Hope some of his teammates follow suit. Hate it for the citizens of that town.

    Maybe consider changing team name from Thunder to something else maybe?

    i love when kooks like you try to drop knowledge. healy resigned in 01. 12 years ago. do a little more research than your little cut/paste “proof”, and you’ll see that the RC has done much more good than bad.

  • Jacob Nelson

    Really? That was just an example of the things that they have done. Mis-using Katrina funds, mis-using Sandy funds,re-allocating funds to their employees. Gail McGovern makes half a million dollars a year. You should probably watch who you call a kook and do some of your own fact checking before you criticize me for being educated. You probably think that bailing GM out was a good idea too huh?
