Meet Allan Guei, shown at the far right of the photograph.  Guei won $40,000 in a free-throw competition  for college-bound students from Compton.  What does he plan to do with the money?

He plans to give it to the seven runners-up:

“They were all smart and wanted to pursue their dreams, but were having financial difficulties,” Guei said after basketball practice recently. “I felt it was the right move to help the others, especially when everything else was taking off for me.”

  1. I salute this Brother for his generosity and sustainable action. Well done, his parents did something right!

    We need more stories like these.

  2. Your abilities exceed that which you can bounce on the floor
    they will take you further than any scout will promise
    You make me proud to be a member of your race

  3. I read about this earlier today and it helped start off my day right. I love hearing stories about teens doing selfless acts. They get such a bad rap for being selfish.
