Kings' Buddy Hield gives back to native Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian


Buddy Hield is prepping for his fourth season with the Kings, but before that happens, he wants to give back -- and this form of charity is more personal for the 26-year-old.

Hield recently organized a GoFundMe for his native Bahamas after the island he grew up on, Grand Bahama, had been hit with the devastations of Hurricane Dorian.

He's already donated $100,000 himself but wants others to join him. 

"My heart is broken for my fellow Bahamians, especially on the island I was raised on, Grand Bahama," Hield wrote. "I personally know many people who still need rescuing, and there are thousands without medical help, power, food, or other basic necessities. Bahamians are a strong people, but they still need our help to get them through this. So today, I’ve donated $100,000 to the Hurricane Dorian Relief in the Bahamas. I’d like to ask you to please donate alongside me."

Hield added the donations can help restore life and hope for the basic human needs to the areas that have been impacted by the storm.

"I appreciate your prayers, love, and donations for the Bahamas!"

The basics he listed range in everything from baby supplies, garbage bags, tents, wash clothes, flashlights batteries -- anything and everything you can imagine in order to survive.

From the moment this post was published, the relief had reached over $25,000 in monetary donations from 577 donors with a goal of $1,000,000.
