Michael Jordan has donated a ton of money to help build a pair of health clinics in North Carolina.

Novant Health stated the following part in a Monday release about the six-time NBA champion’s donation:

 Today, Novant Health and Michael Jordan announced a $10 million gift to open two medical clinics in New Hanover County on the southeastern coast of North Carolina. The regional health care system and Jordan previously partnered to open two Michael Jordan Family Clinics in Charlotte, N.C., bringing comprehensive primary care, including behavioral health and social support services, to the area’s most vulnerable communities. Jordan’s gift will help Novant Health bring this same integrated care model to more rural and rural-adjacent communities in his hometown, offering much-needed services to those who are uninsured or underinsured. The two new clinics are slated to open in early 2022.

I love this move from Jordan. There are people who talk about making a difference, and then there are people who actually make a difference. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Jordan is clearly in the latter group. With one donation of $10 million, the iconic NBA player is going to have a positive impact on a ton of lives.

Obviously, Michael Jordan has a ton of money and won’t miss $10 million, but that’s not the point. The point is that he committed to helping people, and he’s following through. In total, he’s donated $17 million to build clinics with Novant Health since 2017.

Jordan previously committed to donating $100 million over the next decade to help those in need, and it’s crystal clear he has every intention of moving the money.

Props to Jordan for stepping up and helping those in need. That’s the kind of stuff we could use a lot more of in America.
