This is the kind of legacy that most people could only ever dream of leaving behind in this world. Writing a $200 million check to help out sick children is incredible.
While I’m sure that Blank thinks being an NFL owner is the coolest part of his life, this is honestly right up there with that.
At the very least, this will have a more substantial impact on many lives than simply owning an NFL team will.
It’s a 100% pure class move, and Blank deserves to be applauded for the incredibly kind gesture.
Props to him for stepping up and helping out the community that his NFL team represents.
