SHAQUILLE O’NEAL GIFTED 1,000 PS5 AND SWITCH CONSOLES TO UNDERPRIVILEGED KIDS OVER CHRISTMAS
NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal spent his Christmas giving away hundreds of PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch consoles to underprivileged kids over Christmas, it has emerged.
The former basketball star revealed on Gary Vaynerchuk’s podcast, The Gary Vee Audio Experience, that not having a lot growing up really taught him the “value of giving back”. As a result, he gave away no less than 1,000 consoles over the festive period.
O’Neal, who is worth an estimated $400million, stressed the importance of giving what you can and being generous with what you have.
“You know for me, coming from where I come from, my father was a drill sergeant, my mother just was a hard-working woman,” he explained. “Didn’t have a lot. But they taught me the value of giving back. They taught me the value of helping those in need.”
He added that during his work with retailer Toys R Us he learned that 15 to 20 million children in the US wake up on Christmas with no gifts to open. “I felt that one time,” he said. “I don’t ever want a kid to feel like that.”
