Adonal Foyle spent 13 years in the NBA, most of which with the Golden State Warriors but the reason he is an Energy Convertor is the years of service he has dedicated to adding value to the community. I say this as someone who has had the pleasure of knowing Adonal's friendship for the past 10 plus years.
Let's start with his work with his Kerosene Lamp Foundation. KLF was founded in 2003 by Foyle as way to give back to his native St. Vincent and the Grenadines upbringing. KLF was founded in 2003 by Adonal Foyle, a native of St. Vincent & the Grenadines and retired NBA player. KLF uses basketball as a bridge to the next generation, promoting education and health awareness, providing free Athletics & Academics camps, mentoring at-risk student-athletes and building/refurbishing basketball courts. To date we have directly reached over 5000 children in the Caribbean and USA.
For as long as I've known Foyle, he has always found ways to add value to various communities. He now carries on his amazing work with the release of Winning the Money Game. The book focuses on the fact that so many athletes go broke. It goes in depth about why that happens and offers real world solutions for athletes to adopt. It's refreshing to see some one put community before self so consistently. I am proud to call him a friend.
