In midst of what feels like a Friday the 13th nightmare, nearly every sports organization has halted events due to the recent Covid-19 outbreak. Fans from across the nation are heart-broken, athletes are besides themselves and part-time sport facility workers are out of jobs.
Amid the stricken hearts of every sports fan near and far, Giannis is attempting to lift the hearts of many. Earlier this afternoon he announced that he would be making a $100,000 donation to the Fiserv Forum staff in light of recent events.
His donation sparked a train of giving as fellow teammates and the Bucks organization will also be donating to the staff. For every donation made by a Bucks player the organization will match said donation.
Could this spark other teams to do the same for those in need right now? We undoubtedly hope so.
So keep your chins up, pull out those past-season tapings and most importantly…wash your hands.
