Amazing move by Kevin Love
The Cleveland Cavaliers center/power forward Kevin Love will donate $100,000 to financially support the Cleveland Cavaliers arena staff during the suspension due to COVID-19. In his Instagram post he says "Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations. And the fear and anxiety resulting from the recent outbreak of COVID-19 can be extremely overwhelming. Through the game of basketball, we've been able to address major issues and stand together as a progressive league that cares about the players, the fans, and the communities where we work. I'm concerned about the level of anxiety that everyone is feeling and that is why I'm committing $100,000 through the @KevinLoveFund in support of the @Cavs arena and support staff that had a sudden life shift due to the suspension of the NBA season. I hope tht during this time of crisis, others will join me in supporting our communities. Pandemics are not just a medical phenomenon. They affect individuals and society on so many levels, with stigma and xenophobia being just two aspects of the impact of a pandemic outbreak. It's important to know that those with a mental illness may be vulnerable to the effects of widespread panic and threat. Be kind to one another. Be understanding of their fears, regardless if you don't feel the same. Be safe and make informed decisions during this time. And i encourage everyone to take care of themselves and to reach out to others in need-- whether that means supporting your local charities that are canceling events, or checking in on your colleagues and family." Humanity at it's best. Any athlete making millions should always be willing to support the people that make the sport happen honestly and great gesture by Kevin Love. Always been a class act. There should be more like him.
