CSN Houston: @Jlin7 Opens Up About Charity & Friendship with @ChandlerParsons

posted by Randall

LinsanityJeremy Lin  has been the focus of so much attention from both his fans and his doubters. That hasn’t stopped him from devoting time to launching a new charitable foundation and reaching out to those in need.

In his continuing series, 1-1,CSN Houston‘s Howard Chen talk to Lin about charity work and Chandler Parsons.

The Jeremy Lin Foundation launched with a big kick off party All Star weekend.

The point guard raised $150,000 and distributed to three local charities.

“For me, I know for a fact if I didn’t have certain people in my life telling me what to to, what not to do, if I didn’t have positive role models in my life, who knows where I’d be or what I’d be doing right now, said Lin.  “It’s a big part of why I’m able to be in the NBA today. It’s because of people that are around me. And so, I want to hopefully be able to do that and serve and love these kids and to be able to just share God’s love with them and I think if the Foundation, if we can make a little bit of change in a couple of kids’ lives, I think it’ll be well worth it.”

Among the teammates who came to support Lin’s Foundation was his good friend, Chandler Parsons.

“When I came out here, he showed me around the city, helped me find a place to live, and so we had been friends for awhile, had kept in touch… he’s just a good person,” said Lin about Parsons.
