Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on turning memorabilia into dollars for charity

A terrific quote from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar about auctioning off his memorabilia and giving the $3M+ proceeds to his Skyhook Foundation charity that helps kids learn about science, technology, engineering and math:

“When it comes to choosing between storing a championship ring or trophy in a room or providing kids with an opportunity to change their lives, the choice is pretty simple: Sell it all. Looking back on what I have done with my life, instead of gazing at the sparkle of jewels or gold plating celebrating something I did a long time ago, I’d rather look into the delighted face of a child holding their first caterpillar and think about what I might be doing for their future. That’s a history that has no price.”
