Former NFL star Branden Albert said he was inspired to give back by watching ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’!
Not only did Rochester’s own Branden Albert give back to his home town for Thanksgiving and Christmas, he made TMZ because he said Kim Kardashian was the catalyst for him donating $1 Million to Alexadria’s House.
The 2 time pro bowler said he was watched an episode of ‘KUWTK’ where Kim K. visited Alexandria House, a shelter for homeless women and children in Los Angeles. She said she wanted to make a difference inspiring others to do the same and Branden said he hopes to follow suit with his actions.
Branden told TMZ Alexandria House’s mission moved him because he comes from a single-parent home where his mother and aunt worked hard to make ends meet. That’s why he made the decision to donate the $1 million in honor of his mother who passed away from pancreatic cancer a few years ago.
Here is the clip of the episode.
Thank you Branden for being such a positive influence and making our community and the world just a little bit better. Let your light continue to shine and lead by being the example!!
