We already knew that John Wall was motivated to help the less fortunate. After all, this is a man who pledged $1 million to local charities in 2013, just after signing a lucrative contract extension.

But it’s always nice to get fresh news of generous acts, and Wall committed another one on Friday, when he made a surprise appearance at a D.C. organization that helps homeless children. Oh, and the Wizards guard brought with him a donation of $400,000.

Facebook post by Bright Beginnings, Inc., thanked Wall for his contribution. Here is what the group, which describes itself as “nationally accredited child and family development center that offers a bright start for homeless infants, toddlers and preschoolers and their families,” had to say:

“This morning, Washington Wizards point guard John Wall surprised our organization and BBI Executive Director Dr. Betty Jo Gaines with a generous donation of $400,000. This phenomenal contribution will significantly impact the development of Bright Beginnings’ second child development center at 3418 4th Street SE in Ward 8.

“‘Support from individuals like Mr. Wall gives Bright Beginnings the encouragement to continue to provide comprehensive services for homeless children in the District of Columbia. It is evident that John Wall is sensitive and concerned about the plight of homeless children in DC and he wants these children to succeed.’ – Bright Beginnings Executive Director, Dr. Betty Jo Gaines.

“Proudly displayed at the new BBI center will be the John Wall, Wall of Achievement, highlighting the everyday moments of greatness Bright Beginnings students accomplish, in addition to the legacies left behind by high school and college graduates who were once BBI toddlers and preschoolers. Bright Beginnings will also name a classroom in Mr. Wall’s honor. The new Bright Beginnings child development center is scheduled to open its doors in 2017.”

It’s clear that Wall is particularly concerned about the plight of children in need. Last year, he was visibly upset after a Wizards game by news that a 6-year-old girl he had befriended, Miyah Telemaque-Nelson, had lost her battle with cancer.

The Wizards are about to kick off training camp, and Wall is hoping to lead his team deeper into the playoffs than last season, when Washington was eliminated in the Eastern Conference semifinals by Atlanta. Wall was hobbled by an injury he suffered at the start of that series, and if he’s hoping for better luck going forward, well, one would have to think that all the good karma he’s creating can’t hurt.
