Mr. Rogers once famously said that during times of tragedy and hardship, we should always be looking for the helpers, because there will always be people helping. The same is true of the results of Category 5 storm Hurricane Dorian which is currently affecting the people of the Bahamas.

Legendary basketball star Michael Jordan is one of those helpers.

TMZ reports that Michael Jordan has just donated $1 million dollars to hurricane relief.

Through a rep, Jordan has said, "I am devastated to see the destruction that Hurricane Dorian has brought to the Bahamas, where I own property and visit frequently."
