Before the All-Star game LeBron James throws bait into the water and says he might be in the dunk contest. Everyone gets amped up… and he doesn’t do it. What makes this year different? He did say he might do it for a million dollars. After listening to some sports radio one NBA analyst said something like “It may too close to the event to make that happen with his charity…”. That’s where things take a turn. Chris Thomas, 28 has started a fund to raise the 1 Mill to have LeBron enter the Slam Dunk Contest. Let’s hope he can pull it off.
If the project is successful ALL proceeds, net of fees charged by GoFundMe and its payment processor WePay, will be donated to the LeBron James Family Foundation. When you are completing the contingent donation, it will say the payment will go to “Chris Thomas”. The account is under my name, so I can take care of the refund process if need be. I have ZERO monetary interest in this project and the LeBron James Family Foundation will have full access to the account prior to receipt of any proceeds in order to audit all transactions. I have also offered to provide my WePay account log-in information to a representative from the LeBron James Family Foundation to ensure complete financial transparency throughout the process. I repeat ALL proceeds will go to this charity if James participates in the 2013 Slam Dunk Contest.
