ex-Bull Korver active in meaningful charity work

Ex-Bull Kyle Korver, who now plays for the Atlanta Hawks, is seeing the charity he launched several years ago doing some great things in several different communities. The Kyle Korver Foundation, which began by helping kids in the streets of Philly, is now making a difference in the cities of Chicago, Omaha, Salt Lake City, and it's original stomping grounds, Philadelphia.

In 2011, Kyle helped the Chicago organization Breakthrough raise $116,000 for its youth development program by signing hundreds of autographs and encouraging the program's children.

Korver employs a construction team year round called the Seer Group. The Seer Group is perhaps the most active division of the foundation. Over the past few years, the group has installed 116 wheelchair accessibility ramps free of charge to families in need of them.

Insurance rarely covers a ramp, and they usually cost betwween $8-$10,000. In 2012 the Seer Group built 41 ramps for kids and adults in need of easier access to their homes.

How can you help? Just buy a t-shirt, 21 t-shirts sold = 4 wheelchair ramps built. You can also donate to the Kyle Korver Foundation website.
