NBA Legend & Analyst, Charles Barkley pledges $45,000 to fund clean water in East Africa

NBA Legend & Analyst, Charles Barkley pledges $45,000 to fund clean water in East Africa.

Our friend, Malcolm Brogdon was interviewed by the crew at NBA on TNT earlier this week and the results were about more than just basketball! While sharing about his return from injury with the panel, Brogdon was asked about his work with Chris Long and Hoops2o. NBA legend and now TNT analyst, Charles Barkley immediately stepped in, asked how much it is to fund a clean water system in East Africa and quickly pledged $45,000 towards a “Chuck” well.

We’re unbelievably proud of Malcolm and his passion to make this world a better place! As the implementing partner for the Hoops2o & Waterboys initiatives, we’re giving a big congratulations to the team for funding yet another solar-powered well that will reach people who have never received clean water before. Keep up the good work and thank you Charles Barkley and TNT for your support of tackling the clean water crisis in East Africa!
