Jordan teamed up with Feeding America to ensure the people of Chicago and the Carolinas don't go hungry over the Christmas period - both regions having a close place in MJ's heart for obvious reasons.

"An incredible gift to be thankful for - NBA legend Michael Jordan is donating $2 million to help our neighbours facing hunger," the charity said via social media.

But this isn't the first time the NBA Hall of Famer has been generous with his charitable donations.

Earlier this year, the Chicago Bulls great-turned-Charlotte Hornets owner pledged US$100million (AU$136million) to the black community in a bid to combat racial injustices.

"I'm all in with Jordan Brand, the Jordan Family and our partners, who share a commitment to address the historical inequality that continues to plague Black Communities in the U.S.," Jordan said in a statement back in July.
