About football champions, a legacy of love, and life insurance
Former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Warrick Dunn has a legion of fans, and they are not only football fans. The man has amassed fans for his charity work, particularly with Habitat for Humanity. How he got involved is a story in and of itself.
Two days after Dunn’s 18th birthday, his mother was shot and killed in a robbery. She was a single mother and a police officer, who was working off-duty escorting someone to the bank to make a large deposit when the armed robbery occurred. Dunn was the eldest of six children, and he took on the responsibility to provide for his five siblings. One of his first actions was to use the proceeds from his mother’s life insurance policy to buy a home for the family to provide them with stability. He knew a stable environment matters – greatly. His work with Habitat involves providing homes for single mothers to bring that stability to others and to honor his mother.
Among the many beneficiaries of Dunn’s generosity is Clemson’s Deshaun Watson, who threw the winning pass Monday night to win the College Football Playoffs. Check out this story from last night’s CBS Evening News on how a former NFL great helped Clemson’s champion.
It helps to answer the question about why you should buy life insurance. It’s about love. And, it’s about a legacy of love.
