Michael Rubin, the Fanatics pro-sports-gear seller and Sixers co-owner, has started www.allinchallenge.com to raise money to feed poor people as the economy slows — and it’s catching on with sports celebrities.
Rubin worked his contacts in the sports and entertainment business community, directing proceeds to food charities Meals on Wheels, No Kid Hungry, and America’s Food Fund, the Leonardo DiCaprio-Lorene Jobs effort.
The donations had already topped $2.5 million by mid-Wednesday. The money will go to Meals on Wheels, No Kid Hungry, and America’s Food Fund, which directly benefits Feeding America and World Central Kitchen.
