Russell Westbrook is best known for being a star athlete. The point guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder is a four-time NBA All-Star.
In 2015, he was named the NBA All-Star Game’s Most Valuable Player. The guy is good — but not just on the court.
If you think the aggression athletes need in the game speaks to who they really are, you’re quite mistaken.
Just take a look at what Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III did for this sick girl, or what this basketball team did when a classmate with Down syndrome was being bullied!
Meet single mother Kerstin Gonzalez. Gonzalez has two sons, ages 4 and 6, and was only fourteen when she had her first child.
Struggling to provide for her beloved children, she receives support from Sunbeam Family Services, an organization that helps families in need to get back on their feet.
She works, is finishing high school, and hopes to go to college to study forensic science.
While Westbrook is known for his big game, he also has quite the big heart. Founder of the Russell Westbrook Why Not? Foundation, which aims to inspire and empower children, altruism isn’t anything new for the athlete.
As you’ll see in the photos below, just like Gonzalez, it’s impossible not to cry!
