Curry then pledged 40,000 raffle tickets for Alexander-Arnold’s raffle for the Nelson Mandela Foundation. Ever since the NBA season was suspended, Steph Curry has been active in donating for COVID-19 relief and has also spoken up about the rampant social injustice in the USA. Curry was one of the first NBA stars to comment on Goerge Floyd’s murder, and also attended protests after his death while calling out US President Donald Trump. Curry and his wife Ayesha have also donated meals to students in Oakland with their organisation ‘Eat. Learn. Play’. As per reports, they are working with partners to provide meals for close to 25 percent of the children in Oakland.
