November 29 is #GivingTuesday, the global movement that encourages people to do good. Memphis Grizzlies star Jaren Jackson, Jr. is spearheading a Giving Tuesday fundraising campaign to support his passions for the arts, education, and helping kids. His philanthropy is inspired by his grandmother’s example and her constant reminder, “To whom much is given, much is required.”

Jackson is kicking things off with a $150,000 personal donation. You can be a part of the Much Required campaign, donating to his effort benefiting local nonprofits Arrow Creative, LITE Memphis, and Man Up Teacher Fellowship.
