History of Generosity

Shaquille O’Neal has been no stranger to surprising others with acts of kindness. Last year, he gifted a bicycle to a child in a supermarket and prior to that, he gave a pair of shoes to another child. Additionally, he donated a washing machine and a 70-inch television to a family he met at a store in Dallas.

“Every time I go to a store, I am going to buy something for someone. I swear, every time I leave the house, I have to bless someone. I can’t keep all of this to myself. I try to do something positive and lift the spirits of those I encounter,” he shared on a previous occasion.
