News agencies should be fair. We know they arent, but they should be. In such a spirit, this story about a recent $1 million donation to a Memphis charity should get more national and local press. A group that helps underprivileged children in the Memphis area, a place where I remind everyone that he does not even live at this point, received the donation (payable over the next few years) from Calipari. The news story above highlights the work Calipari has done with the organization and what the donation will mean to the group.
Bomani recently told me “the reason I like Cal is simple. He does right by the kids.” He was talking in the context of his players, but it equally applies to children helped by organizations such as this. My hope is that the work is recognized by those in the media. It is a side of Calipari one rarely hears about, but it is worth noticing.
