Drake surprised LeBron James with his donation

Drake and LeBron James are joining forces to do good things for the community and underprivileged students with a significant donation to the LeBron James Family Foundation.

Joining forces to help others

It's not a surprise Drake and LeBron James are close friends that developed a lot of appreciation and respect for each other over the years in which they are considered the best in their respective professions. Now, it seems they are taking it to the next level by giving back to the community, more specifically "I Promise School," which LeBron started a few years ago.

Drake joined forces with Stake, an online gambling house that the rapper is very familiar with and has built a long-lasting partnership with, and they are now participating in a $1M donation in Bitcoin. Interestingly enough, Drake was recently seen betting on one of their online roulette tables and won a hefty sum. One part of that amount he won will go to the donation for LeBron's foundation.

$1 million in Bitcoin

They both met up at an exclusive restaurant in Toronto where Drake announced his donation, saying these are the types of things that make your soul rich. 

"I know me, and you talk about a lot of things. We love watches; we love cars, we love nice things. But I know what means most to you in this life and what actually makes you rich in the soul. I was trying to figure out what to do for this moment, so me and Stake are going to dedicate $1 million dollars to the "I Promise School," and I am going to drop it of myself."

It's interesting how one event, which in this case is Drake winning a lot of money gambling, leads to where that money will be used to help a lot of kids from the underprivileged communities. Hopefully, we see more stories like this where we see greats from different professions team up and organize themselves in some way of helping those who are less fortunate than them.
