After seeing several of his NBA colleagues donate plasma, supplies, and their time to local charities and hospitals, NBA Star Steph Curry has pledged to donate several thousand used mouthguards to San Francisco hospitals.
“Hospitals are getting more and more crowded, and the danger of catching an errant elbow to the face is high. I think doctors and nurses will be relieved to know that they don’t have to risk losing a tooth while they fight the good fight,” Curry said.
Doctors and nurses will be ecstatic to learn every mouthguard Curry will be donating carries with itself a little piece of NBA history. “I wore each and every single one of these mouthguards between the 2015 and 2018 season. The mouthguards are slightly used, but I never really have them in my mouth for the most part, so they will still offer full protection.”
Steph Curry hopes that his charitable contributions will motivate doctors and nurses, but also fellow NBA stars who have the capabilities to help their community during the Coronavirus crisis.
“I know other guys like Lebron are getting ready to donate some of their gear to local hospitals. He’s been working with local doctors who are balding, and offering them headbands that he wore in previous seasons. It might not seem like a lot, but those balding doctors could use the self-esteem boost those headbands will give them,” explained Curry.
NBA players aren’t the only athletes who have been donating to their local hospitals and charities. NFL star and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be donating several lightly used casts that he has worn over the years after unsuccessful seasons. Former MLB star Kurt Schilling will also be donating slightly bloody socks to local homeless shelters, but it’s been reported that he plans to drive the supplies to the shelters on his own.
