Jrue and Lauren Holiday donate up to $5.3 million to launch social justice fund

Holiday: "I just feel like it's the perfect opportunity to pick those three cities that mean a lot to us and try to better those cities

New Orleans Pelicans star Jrue Holiday and his wife Lauren have decided to donate the rest of the player’s earnings this season, a figure that could reach $ 5.3 million.

“We were just kind of sitting in the house, in the bed, thinking about it, and my wife said, ‘I think you should do this and you should do the rest of your salary.’That’s a great idea. Because we want to make an impact. God has blessed us with so much. We know a couple of things that are important are time and money, and right now, we have both. To be able to give away our money to help further this movement and Black-owned businesses that have taken a hit in COVID-19, to us, it felt like the perfect time and opportunity.”
