Michael Jordan is Donating Proceeds From a Special-Edition Bulls Jersey to Friends of the Children!

It’s not every day that you get a call that perhaps the most famous athlete in the world, Michael Jordan, is inspired by your work and wants to support it.

Last week, Friends of the Children got that call!

Michael Jordan is donating proceeds from a special-edition Bulls jersey to Friends of the Children!

Nike announced today that they are releasing three versions of the jersey, which will be available for purchase.

The best part? We can now give more kids facing the greatest obstacles a Friend—a paid professional mentor—who stays with them from kindergarten through graduation–12+ years, no matter what.

Join Michael Jordan in supporting our work!

We could not be more grateful for this opportunity. Please help us share the great news and make a donation today!
