Related Articles

Aussie NBA Basketballer Patrick ‘Patty’ Mills has made a donation close to his heart, and a sizeable donation at that.

Mills has pledged to donate the remainder of his salary this NBA Season to help Indigenous Australians. This donation is close to $1.45 million (AUD)!

“I’ve made the decision to go to Orlando and I’m proud to say I’m taking every cent earned from these eight games that we’re playing — which for me will turn out to be $1,017,818.54 (USD) and donating that directly back to the Black Lives Matter Australia, black deaths in custody and a recent campaign, called the We Got You campaign, dedicated to ending racism in sport in Australia,” Mills said. “So I’m playing in Orlando because I don’t want to leave any money on the table that could be going directly to black communities.”

We didn’t think we could love Patty any more than we already did, but then he goes and does something like this! What a guy!
