Amazing Celebrities Who Give Back To Their Communities

LeBron James

LeBron James and the LeBron James Family Foundation are making a difference in the education system of Akron, Ohio, which is James’ hometown. The LJFF has given over 1,000 four-year scholarships to high school students attending the University of Akron but felt that wasn’t enough.

James and his foundation now have programs that start in elementary school to ensure that underprivileged African-American children are receiving the attention they need from a young age, not just once they’re in high school and potentially too far behind to consider university. Accessible, stable education is what James and his foundation are all about.
