The King, already a hometown hero, has focused his charity efforts on sending kids from Akron, Ohio to college. As part of his LeBron James Family Foundation’s I Promise program, he partnered with the University of Akron to guarantee four-year scholarships for 1,100 kids. (Yep, that’s tens of millions of dollars he’ll be donating.) “It means so much because, as a kid growing up in the inner city and a lot of African-American kids, you don't really think past high school," said James during the event’s launch. “You don't really know your future. You hear high school all the time, and you graduate high school and then you never think past that because either it's not possible or your family's not financially stable to even be able to support a kid going to college."
