Kevin Durant, the Thunder’s mega basketball star is pledging $1 million — through The Durant Family Foundation — for relief after deadly tornadoes tore through the mid-west on Monday. The American Red Cross said Durant’s commitment is meant to match other donations and be an incentive for more people to contribute.
Kevin Durant, who made $16.6 million last season and will make $17.8 million next year, was not the one who revealed his generosity. Rather, the Red Cross’ Oklahoma division tweeted the news of the 24-year-old’s commitment.
The NBA and the NBA Players Association will also contribute $1 million to relief efforts and the Thunder is kicking in $1 million in support. You can help by sending a $10 donation to the Disaster Relief fund by texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 or by calling 1-800-733-2767.
