All of us want to make humungous amounts of money. We all want to be millionaires, millionaires want to become billionaires, and billionaires want to become the no. 1 richest in the world. The vicious money cycle never stops!
But it takes a strong heart and mind to say that you have enough and be grateful, and an even stronger selflessness to help others who are in need.
Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury inspired many when he donated his entire earnings of 9 million USD to charity, especially the homeless.
The British boxer, who is also known as “The Gypsy King” in the Ring, had earned the amount from a match with Deontay Wilder.
Sources revealed that he would be giving his hard-earned cash to UK charities to build homes for alcohol and drug addicts in the UK.
Fury, who has spent most of his life battling mental health issues and drug abuse, trying to break free from his addictions, is now stepping up and helping those who are going through the same.
He revealed that he doesn’t do charity work for a “pat on the back”, instead he genuinely wants to help people.
“Everybody out there who has the same problems I’ve been suffering with, I did that for you guys. You know the truth, everybody knows that I am now fine. And if I can come back from where I came back from, then you can do it too”, he said.
According to sources, Fury hadn’t always been sympathetic towards the homeless. But a trip to Los Angeles changed his perspective.
There he saw a staggering number of people living off the streets, and that’s when he decided he had to help them.
Not just a champion in the ring, but a champion in real life as well. Kudos to Fury for being a true hero!
