He donated $1 million of his own money to the Red Cross in 2013 for victims of the Moore, Okla. tornado.
The 2013 Moore tornado caused devastation in Oklahoma, destroying streets, homes, and consequently people’s lives. Durant showed why he is such a loved figure in the league by donating $1 million of his own money to the Red Cross for disaster relief, and he did this without publicizing his donation. Not only did he write a hefty cheque, KD also visited the impacted area to see the destruction for himself and meet the locals, and he used his public profile to urge others to donate too. This is just one example of his incredible generosity, which has had such a positive impact on the entire NBA organization.
