Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry donates insecticide-treated bed nets for every Under Armor Curry 4 shoe purchased in the United Nations Foundation “Nothing But Nets” campaign. Serving as a Global Ambassador for the UN Foundation, the two time MVP was quoted saying during the shoe release:
“As a father, I can’t imagine a world where kids are still dying unnecessarily from a preventable disease” – Stephen Curry
In the past, Mr. Curry has been spotted traveling to Tanzania himself and hanging nets and spending time with families. In his statement after traveling, Curry added:
“Going to Tanzania, and seeing things first-hand was very heartbreaking, but at the same time encouraging. It was inspiring to know that we were doing great things to send nets to raise money for those families.” – Stephen Curry (Mercury News)
Over 12 million bed nets have been delivered to over 31 countries and counting. Another Curry creative idea to give back and use his platform for the good of the people. A truly humble humanitarian.
Don’t Stop The Talk loves when a charitable athlete will use their platform to help others.
