Johnson was a member of five championship teams. He won the Most Valuable Player Award and the Finals MVP Award three times each. He won 5 NBA championships and 3 MVP awards during a Hall of Fame career in which he revolutionized the game. A 12-time All-Star and a nine-time member of the All-NBA First Team, Johnson also won a gold medal with the original Dream Team at the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona.

Caring For Others Founder & CEO Eslene Richmond-Shockley said the addition of Donato showcases the nonprofit’s dedication to its international mission.

“Poverty is a major issue worldwide, and we are honored to be joined at the International Poverty Forum by the Honorary Consul General,” Richmond-Shockley said. “But while looking globally, we cannot forget our community at home. This Saturday, February 11th at 10:30am, we will be doing a food and clothing distribution to those in need locally, and we invite the media to come out and see how serious the problem is.”
