LeBron James keeps giving back to the community in more ways than we can even imagine.

In a recent interview with Willie Geist of Today, King James announced that he wants to give the kids of Akron, Ohio (his hometown) the opportunity to attend college. For free!

On Thursday, James announced that through his charity, the LeBron James Family Foundation, he vows to send qualifying students from Akron, Ohio, to college on four-year academic scholarships.

“These kids are everything,” James explained.

The foundation has already helped children from third through seventh grade, and will now assist those looking to go to college by paying tuition at the University of Akron, where a year’s tuition is about $9,500.

So now you’re probably asking yourself, about how many kids will James be helping?

“At this rate, we’ve got 1,100 kids in our program, and if I can put 1,100 kids into college free, that means I’ll have done something, (and) the University of Akron, JPMorgan and Chase and my foundation have done something great to give back.”

That will end up costing $41.8 million in order to send all 1,100 kids to college for four years.

with the way his first season back in Cleveland ended and all of the criticism James receives, it’s admirable to see him continue to do amazing things in his community. I salute you Lebron!
