Kevin Durant Donates $1 Million To Red Cross
With the images and stories that have been coming out of Moore, Oklahoma in recent days, many people are trying to find ways to help the residents of the town recover. Basketball player, Kevin Durant, stepped up in a big way.
The Oklahoma Thunder player made a $1 Million donation to the Red Cross to help that organization’s efforts in Moore. Durant didn’t announce the donation which was made through his personal foundation. In fact, no one knew about the large donation until the Red Cross posted about it on Twitter.

Durant was also on hand to survey the efforts of the Red Cross as they try to help those who were affected by the tornado. The American Red Cross said that Durant’s donation was to be a “match” donation that they hope will inspire others to donate.
