Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose knows how violent his hometown Chicago is and how many young kids are getting killed due to gang violence.
Rose wants to make a difference as he donated $1 million to a Chicago non-profit organization that provides out-of-school programs. The After School Matters organization is populated with poor and minority teens.
Rose has donated a lot of money for programs in Chicago and has even paid for funerals for the unfortunate who have lost their loved ones due to Chicago violence.
Rose told ESPN:
“So many people have invested in me and I want to do the same for Chicago’s teens”
He does more for them than the mayor it seems.
