DEVIN BOOKER THE SHOOTING STAR WITH A HEART OF GOLD
Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker worked hard with his team to be where they are. The Suns’ the Los Angeles Lakers in round one of the NBA playoffs and now face the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Semifinals. Last month, Booker received the NBA Cares Community Assist Award. This award reflects the heart and passion for the community and one player is selected each month. The NBA and Kaiser Permanente will donate $10,000 to Special Olympics Arizona. In May, he granted five local nonprofit organizations $100,000 through his Devin Booker Starting Five initiative. These resources are to help the organizations who have been in need of funding especially during the pandemic, and they can continue to operate their programs that support the livelihood of local families and youth. For Booker, it’s important to give back and to serve others given the role he is in and the influence he has.
When you serve others, serve passionately and wholeheartedly! Remember you are in a position of impact and influencer!
“Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” – Luke 12:33-34
