Canadian rapper Drake has pledged to donate $1 million in bitcoin to his friend and NBA legend LeBron James‘ charity, the LeBron James Family Foundation.
“Myself and Eddie from Stake, we’re going to dedicate a million dollars to the I Promise school,” Drake said in a clip posted on social media. ” And I’m gonna go drop it off myself before the school year ends.”
I Promise School is a public elementary school in Akron, Ohio, opened in 2018, supported by the LeBron James Family Foundation, and specifically aimed at at-risk children.
Further, Drake and LeBron also hosted a local Toronto star high school basketball player named Michael and his mother for dinner, where they gave the mom $100,000 in cash to help ease their financial.
“I respect your hard work a lot,” he said to Michael before pivoting to his mother. “But I respect your hard work more. On behalf of me, my brother and Stake, we wanted to give you this $100,000. Hopefully, this makes this journey just a little bit easier.”
