Not long after a GoFundMe page was created on Thursday to help cover the funeral costs for a young man by the name of Christopher Victor Romero, who passed away on August 11, someone donated three-quarters of the fundraiser’s requested $10,000. That person was none other than Karl-Anthony Towns. A former Kentucky Wildcat and current center for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Towns donated $7,500 to help fund the funeral service for the family.
Karl-Anthony Towns has to be one of the nicest dudes out there. I’m sure he didn’t expect recognition for this, just saw someone in need and helped out of the kindness of his heart 🤝 pic.twitter.com/j9tpdeDUlS

The struggles for Towns on a personal level have been well-documented over the last year. The passing of his mother and several family members due to COVID-19, later contracting the disease himself, and then being hit by a drunk driver in the offseason. We must take notice off Karl’s good actions.
