As we all know by now, there have been some horrifying tornadoes rolling through Oklahoma City. You can always help by donating to the Red Cross as did Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder. He donated a tremendous $1 Million to the relief fund. Good to see these high paying athletes putting their money towards helping people in need.
“Rich is not what you have, it’s who you have beside you”
Well this is just about the coolest thing we’ve heard today about Lebron James other than killing it in the playoffs. He has agreed to donate $1 million to his old high school St. Vincent-St. Mary’s and will also be designing the gym. Once the project is done the gym will be called Lebron James Arena. Good to see a player of his caliber giving back to those in need.
Not that long ago Ryan Leslie lost his laptop and offered a $1 million reward to anyone that found it. Well Armin Augstein found it but never got his money. So he took Leslie to court and now he’s going to get his money. Don’t offer up that reward paper unless you plan on paying it Mr. R. Les.
Looks like this whole beef just jumped up to another level. People are putting their money up and want to see 50 and Floyd take their frustrations out in ring. Apparently the current offer is a $10 million payout. 50 Cent got on Twitter and said he’s down, wonder what Floyd will think of this. Click HERE for more info.
Since Donald Trump offered President Barack Obama $5 million to show his records, Mark Cuban made an even better offer. He offered Donald Trump $1 Million to shave his head, and apparently later upped the offer to $2 million. This happened live on Fox4 News in Dallas, here’s what he said.
“Donald, you shave your head, $1 million to any charity you want,”
Clash of the Titans! Former Investment Banker and now Entrepreneur A.J. Steigman has challenged venture capital guru Peter Thiel to a $1 Million Chess Game. According to Steigman “”I’m doing this for all the entrepreneurs or business owners who have great ideas, but don’t have the capital to see it go through. I want to show that there are unconventional ways to raise money.” This should be super inspiring in a time where there are so many young entrepreneurs out there trying to make a way. Steigman and Thiel are both ranked in the top 2500 chess players in the world, so this isn’t just some battle between investment bankers or CEOs. Both men considered Life Masters, the chess match will be a literal super bout of sorts.
Stiegman is now the CEO of the Soletron, a Social E-Commerce site focusing on sneaker culture. If he wins, Steigman wants the PayPal founder Thiel to pay him $1 million to go towards his company’s series A fundraising round. So far, Steigman and Soletron have acquired quite the grocery list of investors. From Bruce Chizen, former CEO of Adobe, to NFL Superbowl MVP Santonio Holmes, amongst other names. Doesn’t seem as if he needs too much help, but this is definitely going to get interesting if Peter Thiel agrees to the challenge! We’ll keep you guys posted.

She said that she gave birth to the rapper’s daughter over ten years ago and the money he owes has added up to over one million dollars. She is taking the matter to court, and the ongoing legal battle could prevent DMX from performing in Europe. He will be asking the court for special permission to acquire a passport. Damn, my man X can never catch a break.
