While WNBA players don’t earn the same salary as their multi-million dollar NBA counterparts, that doesn’t mean their heart isn’t as big, if not bigger. New York Liberty center Tina Charles easily proves it.
Charles will donate half of her $100,000 WNBA salary to a charity she started to honor her aunt, who died from multiple organ failure in 2013, the Associated Press reported on Tuesday.
Multiple organ dysfunction syndrome is the presence of altered organ function in acutely ill patients such that homeostasis cannot be maintained without intervention. It usually involves two or more organ systems. The condition usually results from infection, injury (accident, surgery), hypoperfusion and hypermetabolism.
This act of kindness isn’t the first time Charles has helped those in need.
