NBA players commit a lot of money and time every year to good causes. Players have foundations, team events, sponsored programs, all of which really make substantial impacts on the lives of those in need.
But sometimes, the best acts of kindness are made spontaneously and without organization. Earlier this week, new Jazz point guard George Hill came across some folks in need and decided to lend a hand.
Impacting Lives is Something I Strive To Do Everyday. Whether Its A Smile, Hug, Conversation, Picture Or Simply Spreading The Love.... Well As I Was Walking Last Night With My Family In My New City (Salt Lake City). I Noticed A Large Group Of Men, Women And Even Children. But The Group I Noticed Maybe Had A Blanket, A Cart Filled With Things, Dirty Clothes, And Wasn't Sure When Their Last Meal Was... So Why Not Make That My One Good Deed Of The Day And Impact A Couple Lives. So Went To Wendys And Grabbed A Bunch Of Cheese Burgers, Fries Bought Some Bottled Waters And Walked Down Rio Grande Till We Reached A Park Up The Street And Passed Out Hot Meals And Mingled. Had A Great Time Listening To Some Of Their Stories... So I Challenge Everyone To Spread The Love And Do A Good Deed Once A Day. DM Me Some Of Your Good Deeds And I Will Start Posting Some Of Your Impactful Stories. Together We Can Spread The Love... #GoodDeeds #ImpactingLives #SpreadTheLove
Just a cool story, told with capital letters on every word for some reason, and it wasn't done under any conditions or pre-developed settings. He just saw some folks and bought them a meal and some waters. Utah, though, has been one of the most active states in trying to find positive solutions to their homeless issues, and in a decade have reduced the chronic homeless population by a striking 91 percent. So Hill's in good company with his new team, it seems like.
