theGrio’s 100: Amar’e Stoudemire, inspiring kids to read is a slam dunk

Amar’e Stoudemire sets the example with his charity for at-risk youth, STAT: Standing Tall and Talented. The 30 year old, six-time NBA All Star overcame tremendous odds to reach this station in life and is passionate about reaching back into the communities that need help. Through his efforts, thousands of young lives have been changed for the better.

Thank you, Mr. Stoudemire. I hope that others, pros & non-pros, will continue to take up the mantel for our children. It takes broad vision to do such work for the youth truly are our future … ~ KT
