He has had this foundation since 2003, a month after he got drafted and signed. He put a quarter of his first game check into nearly the same thing.
I can't help but feel cynical about this. Feels like a PR move, even if he didn't need it.
He came from a very troubled background and at Miami before he declared for the draft he came out promising to help children who are struggling like he was. It's not a PR stunt, it hits close to home for Johnson.
