Legendary NBA champ Michael Jordan pledges $1 Million towards the Hurricane Dorian relief

Six-time NBA champion Michael Jordan has pledged $1 million to organizations assisting with Hurricane Dorian relief efforts.

Jordan, who owns property in the Bahamas and frequently visits the islands, said in a statement Tuesday that he’s “devastated” at the destruction brought by the storm, adding “my heart goes out to everyone who is suffering and to those who have lost loved ones.”

“The Bahamian people are strong and resilient and I hope that my donation will be of help as they work to recover from this catastrophic storm,” Jordan concluded the statement, which was tweeted out by his spokesperson Estee Portnoy.
Jordan also said that he will be tracking the relief effort closely and “working to identify nonprofit agencies where the funds will have the most impact.”
Thousands of people have been left homeless by the Category 5 blow, which destroyed or damaged buildings on Abaco and Grand Bahama islands.
Nearly 5,000 people have arrived in the capital, Nassau, by plane and by boat, and many were struggling to start new lives, unclear of how or where to begin. More than 2,000 of them were staying in shelters, according to government figures.
As reported by The Sauce, singer, actress and entrepreneur Rihanna vowed to help provide relief to the victims of the hurricane through her own charity, The Clara Lionel Foundation, as soon as the non-profit organization figures out the best way to do so.
