Dennis Rodman Poses with the House he is Raffling Off
Dennis Rodman, arguably basketball's best defensive player in the modern era, has joined with the Mission of Saint Francis to raise money for their efforts to assist with helping people beat addiction and substance abuse.
While most people are probably more familiar with Dennis' changing hair color and piercings, we learned a lot more about the athlete when he appeared on the Mike Huckabee show on December 7th. In the interview, it came out that:
- Mr. Rodman was completely homeless for two years from ages 18-20, living on the streets of Dallas and experienced extreme poverty throughout most of his youth. Additional research shows his father abandoned him when he was three years old and his mother often worked four jobs to support the family.
- He frequently goes around in areas where there are a lot of homeless and poor and hands out money to those who are hungry
- In the early 90's, Dennis created a scholarship in the name of a man who was killed by klansmen in Texas. he also anonymously paid for the man's funeral.
