LeBron James teams with LIFEWTR to fund people’s passions

LeBron James is not only one of the greatest players in NBA history, but he also has become known as much more than an athlete.

In recent years, he has become a social activist and entrepreneur while launching several initiatives aimed at helping people to help themselves. One of them, his I Promise School in his native Akron, Ohio, has been helping at-risk children gain a quality education and foundation for success.

Now, James is teaming with LIFEWTR, a premium bottled water brand by PepsiCo, to help fund people’s passions and allow them to pursue more from their lives.

Via PR Newswire:

“LIFEWTR will distribute more than $100,000 in funds to people who want to pursue more in their lives – a passion, purpose, talent, and more – starting with the students at LeBron’s I PROMISE School in Akron, OH.”

It is always touching to see rich and famous individuals such as James give back to those who are either less fortunate or willing and aspiring to go after their dreams in life.
