NBA Basketball Legend Shaq Blesses Hardworking Mother of 9 with Generous Gift that Will Change Their Lives
Access to great resources also means you’re in an ideal position to help those around you in ways big and small.
Athletes are usually best known for their athletic prowess, but some take their reputation beyond their sport by extending their influence beyond their sport.
Shaquille O’Neal is among the greatest NBA basketball legends
Known worldwide as “The Shaq,” he won four NBA championships and earned an estimated $700 million during his legendary NBA career.
While others were determined to spend their money as quickly and mindlessly as possible, Shaq instead put his money to work. He diversified his income by acquiring businesses such as grocery franchises and other companies.
Shaq used his wealth and influence to help those in need
One fantastic thing Shaq has done with his vast fortune is help distribute relief goods to disaster-stricken families. Chuck loves to make kids laugh through his annual “Shak-A-Claus” events.
He also founded the Shaquille O’Neal Foundation, where he uses his money to invest back into the community. And recently he has made the life of a family much better by surprising them with a fantastic gift.
Shak left the difficult mother speechless
On Instagram, a photo posted by @thecollinkids shows the family posing next to the NBA legend.
Behind the family was a car dealership where they had just received a new family car paid for by Shak. The family said Shaq took them over for dinner as a family and it was great hanging out with them.
Recently a family were looking to buy a new car to fit their large family as they had ‘outgrown’ their 12 passenger van! Also, the air conditioner started blowing out!
His generosity did not end there
The post said Shak took them to a coffee shop after the family got the new van. There he insisted on paying not only for their meals but also for another table. The customers turned out to be visiting missions overseas.
And when he found out their waitress had car trouble after it broke down, he left her a $1,000 tip.
But wait. There’s more!
After learning that the father of the family had mechanical problems with his truck, such as with air conditioning, bought him a brand new truck!
Finally, Shak spent a lot of time with his family encouraging and showing them love. The post said:
“He also spent time encouraging us and loving our children and talking about life with our family.” I am completely lost for words.”
Now it’s one thing for a rich celebrity like Shaq to spend money to bless someone’s life, but spending precious time with people shows how much he cares.
For Shaku, life is about sharing your blessings with others
In an interview, Shak challenged himself that every time he leaves his home, he should make sure he does at least one good deed for a stranger.
No wonder there are almost countless stories about his generosity. And he really exceeded the quota in this situation, proving that he has a heart that is even more significant than his great stature!
