HOUSTON, TX – Houston Rocket-turned-philanthropist Jeremy Lin launched the Jeremy Lin Foundation at Minute Maid Park.
Big names turned out to support Lin, whose foundation helps underprivileged children in the Houston area.
“Just to be able to do things like this and support Jeremy’s foundation and to see that he’s doing great things with the kids, that’s what it’s all about,” said Joakim Noah, Chicago Bulls center.
Lin says he eventually wants to help out in the Bay Area, where he is from, and beyond.
“Years down the road, I definitely want to make an impact with third-world countries, and for our foundation to be able to do work in a lot of different areas across the world. But this is definitely the first step,” said Lin.
