@kdtrey5 steps forward and gives $1mil matching gift to the ARC for disaster relief, text "REDCROSS" to 90999 for a $10 donation.— Red Cross Oklahoma (@redcrossokc) May 21, 2013
Regional Red Cross: “Mr. Durant’s gift and support to Okla. comes at a time of great need and we’re forever thankful for his generosity.”— Royce Young (@dailythunder) May 21, 2013
It's also well-worth mentioning that Kevin Durant did not announce this donation. Rather, the Red Cross was the first to point out Durant's contribution; and while we'd guess that Kevin will come out with a statement eventually, for now he is letting his donation do the talking.
There's isn't much to add beyond this. The devastation in Oklahoma was as stunning as it was swift, and any little bit helps. The Red Cross' localized branch is the best place to go if you want to contribute as Kevin did.
Cortlan Wickliff, 22, is graduating from Harvard Law School on May 30. When he crosses the stage and receives his Juris Doctorate, Wickliff will be the youngest African-American to ever join the elusive law school alumni club.
This isn’t the first time the Texas native entered the academic history books. Wickliff was the youngest African-American engineer in the United States when he finished a Bachelor’s of Science in Bioengineering at 19.

'90s comedian Sinbad claims he's broke as a joke ... again -- filing for bankruptcy for the second time since 2009.
Sinbad (real name David Adkins) filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy last month, claiming he owes $10,991,715 in debt ... and only has $131,000 in assets.
The 56-year-old comedian -- famous for his roles in '90s movies like "Houseguest" and "Jingle All the Way" -- says he owes $374,979 to American Express, $32,199 to Bank of America, and $2.3 million to the CA Franchise Tax Board.
He also claims he owes $8.3 million to the IRS for taxes from 1998-2006, and admits he owes both state and federal taxes from 2009-2012.
According to the bankruptcy docs, Sinbad earns only $16,000 per month and can't afford to pay his bills.
But the bright side, he's still got some possessions -- a 2007 BMW 750i, a 2006 VW Beetle, a 2010 Ford F150, a 2010 Lincoln Navigator, $5,000 in home office equipment ... and 200 copies of "Sinbad's Guide to Life" currently for sale on Amazon for $6.25 each.
Sinbad filed for bankruptcy once before in 2009, but the case was dismissed because he didn't file the right documents.
