Muhammad Ali: The Champion of Charity

Muhammad Ali was Superman. Think about it–he was a symbol of hope for millions of people and remains indestructible. The dude in the blue tights whose adventures we’ve collected under our beds for decades ain’t got nothin’ on M.A., in terms of goodworks.

The handsome Charlie Brown faced Heavy-weight Champion of the world not only raised millions for Parkinsons’ Disease research (which he was diagnosed with in 1984) through his Center. But also used his celeb status to raise money for Make-a-Wish Foundation and Special Olympics.

Muhammad Ali shook up the world with his kindness and compassion; exhibited by his grand gestures of humanity. Like the time in 1998 the champ delivered $ 1.2 million of medical supplies to Cuba.

 

The champ extended his peacemaking efforts by stepping in to release an Iranian hostage.

Lest we mention Muhammad Ali’s volunteer work in soup kitchens in his hometown of Louisville.

We can go on and on and on. The point remains it doesn’t get any greater than Muhammad Ali G.O.A.T.
