“My heart goes out to all those who suffer and have lost loved ones,” said the former Chicago Bulls back-up, a six-time NBA champion in the 1990s.
Today, the owner of the Charlotte Hornets franchise, Jordan says he wants to choose the non-profit organizations to which he will give these funds, “where their impact will be the strongest”.
“The people of Bahamas are strong and resilient, and I hope this donation will be useful to them” after the disaster, concluded the former basketball player.
In addition to Michael Jordan, who had already donated $ 2 million in November 2018 after Hurricane Florence wreaked havoc in North and South Carolina, Micky Arison, another NBA franchise owner, the Miami Heat, announced its intention to donate a million dollars.
