Warriors’ Stephen Curry, wife Ayesha unveil kids nonprofit organization in Oakland
Warriors star Stephen Curry and wife Ayesha unveiled their nonprofit organization called ‘Eat, Learn, Play’ on Thursday evening. At the reveal, the couple spoke about the charity’s goals and why they chose to start the non-profit.
“Over the past 18 months or two years, we’ve really thought about what we want our own foundation to look like, what we want to stand behind,” Stephen said. “About how we can best make an impact. ”
“We wanted to be involved in something that stems from our passions, that comes from that place of passion,” Ayesha said. “We were not thinking about what this does for our legacy, but about how to have a direct impact. How to help out the community.”
Already, the Curry’s are known to be a charitable couple. The couple supports a charity called “Nothing but Nets” that provides mosquito nettings to combat malaria in impoverished countries. They also hold an annual golf tournament as raised over 150,000 dollars for ThanksUSA scholarships.
This new organization will allow Curry to give back to the city that has helped him grow as a player and a person over his basketball career. Now, Curry will help the kids of Oakland in a process that has come full circle.
When the kids in Oakland look up to Steph in the future, it won’t only be for his basketball talent but also for his generosity and kindness as a person.
