Michael Jordan is feeling the holiday spirit — the NBA legend just donated $2 MILLION to help feed people in need!!!
“In these challenging times and in a year of unimaginable difficulty due to COVID-19, it’s more important than ever to pause and give thanks,” Jordan said.
“I am proud to be donating additional proceeds from ‘The Last Dance’ to Feeding America and its member food banks in the Carolinas in Chicago to help feed America’s hungry.”

Of course, “The Last Dance” documentary was wildly successful — it’s very cool to see MJ using that extra cash to help the less fortunate have a nice holiday.
The people at Feeding America — which touts itself as “the largest charitable food assistance network in the U.S.” — were stoked to receive MJ’s gift.

Feed America says it works with 200 food banks and 60,000 food partners across the country — and they’re encouraging everyone who can help to pitch in!
Jordan has been super charitable this year — back in June, he ( along with Jordan Brand) pledged $100 million over the next decade to fight racial inequality.
