In 2014, when Michael Jordan’s last NBA contract expired, the basketball icon was asked to donate $10 million to charity.
He opted for charity in a way he hadn’t in years: he would donate it to the ATP, the charitable arm of the US Anti-Doping Agency.
And in a rare display of generosity, he gave the money to charity in the US and the UK, which has a strict anti-doping regime.
Jordan had donated $5.5 million to ATP charity in 2015, which he gave to charity, but he was only a small percentage of the ATPA’s overall total of $3.3 billion.
Jordan’s gift was an exception to the norm, which is to donate to charity when you can.
That was the case with Michael Jordan.
He had donated more than $10m to charity as a player, but that wasn’t a rare occurrence.
Michael Jordan had given more than$10m of his earnings to charity on multiple occasions in his career.
Now he had donated the money in the same way he has donated other things to charity – in the form of a $1 million gift to the charity of his choice.
Michael had donated a total of about $2.8 billion to charity and charities had given to him in the past, according to the US government’s own data.
So Jordan’s decision to give to charity was not unprecedented.
But it was an unusual move.
Charity and charity donors tend to be more self-focused than other people.
It is a lot harder to give away $1m in the middle of a season than it is to give it in a charity auction, or donate to a charity when there are lots of other options out there.
And when Jordan donated, he did it in the name of charity, not himself.
Charity, for Jordan, was more about personal relationships than it was about money.
Michael has said that when he gave his money to ATPs charity, he thought it would help other charities.
And that is exactly what happened.
Michael said: The biggest part of me being a human being is that I have a lot of relationships with people, and I just thought, I can give that money to a lot more people than just one charity.
And I can do that for a lot less money than I would have paid to somebody else to do that.
And it made a big difference.
ATPs charitable foundation has a number of initiatives to support athletes and their charities.
Michael was a part of a team that donated more to the foundation in 2015 than any other year.
ATP also has an ongoing effort to increase the number of donors to its programs, which it calls “the most generous charities on earth”.
For example, in 2015 it worked with the US Army to help wounded veterans get medical care.
ATPA has a range of programs that help people around the world.
Its most well-known and well-established one is its Olympic and Paralympic Fund, which provides funds to the athletes and the sports teams of the United States and around the globe.
That programme, which also helps Paralympians and their families, was set up by former US President Bill Clinton in 1997.
ATp has also set up a charitable fund for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which provides research support and research infrastructure for the US.
In 2017, the ATPP was a big contributor to a program called the Health and Wellbeing Research Fund, a $2 billion trust that was created to help fund the research and development of medical treatments for diseases like cancer and diabetes.
The ATPP also has a philanthropic programme called the Achieving a Better Future, which works to reduce poverty and inequality in the world’s poorest countries.
It also works to raise awareness about the importance of philanthropy in the fight against disease.
Michael told me that it is about connecting people to the cause.
Michael also mentioned that giving to charity can be a powerful way of building your own brand.
That is something he and many athletes have done for years, in a sort of mini-superstar way.
Michael talked about the times when he was very proud to give the money he made as a pro to charity: When I was a player and I thought I was going to get some of that money back.
When I started to work in the NBA, I had this idea to give a couple of bucks to the hospital in the Dominican Republic and to the children.
Michael says he was a little disappointed when he got the check but he had an idea of what he could do.
The money was a lot bigger than I thought it was going be and I felt good about it.
And so I gave the $1.25 million back, to the hospitals.
But I never thought it could be so big.
I had a feeling that maybe it would get used as a vehicle to build my brand, because people think of the money as a huge amount of money,
