Seahawks owner donates 100 million dollars to help fight EBOLA
Ebola has been a huge factor over the passed several weeks in the United States, and now the NFL is trying to help fight it. The owner of the Seattle Seahawks Paul Allen has tons of money and maybe he is just trying to save his money for a tax write off, but at the end of the day it is nice to see someone stepping up to fight Ebola
Via the New York Times, Allen has donated $100 million to the fight against Ebola.
“Everybody feels called sometimes to really pursue a certain thing that resonates with them, and this has resonated with me,” Allen said. “The exponential nature of the growth of this disease is really a challenge — we’ve already seen in the U.S. where one case quickly became two.”
Allen also has created the TackleEbola.com website, where donations much smaller than $100 million can be made for small, specific projects.
