Kyrie Irving Donation: Gives $40K To 93 Year Old: Go Fund Me

This article was last updated by on

NBA star Kyrie Irving has shown immense generosity by donating $40,000 to a GoFundMe campaign initiated by the granddaughter of Josephine Wright, a resilient 93-year-old woman from South Carolina.

Josephine is currently facing a distressing legal battle with developers who are allegedly attempting to evict her from her home.

The Wright family has a deeply rooted history with the property, dating back to the end of the Civil War.

Josephine’s late husband was a Gullah Geechee Islander, and their ancestors found freedom from slavery thanks to Union soldiers.

Since her husband’s passing in 1998, Josephine has resided alone on her beloved 1.8-acre Hilton Head property.

However, Bailey Point Investment Group has taken legal action against the nonagenarian, claiming that a portion of her home encroaches upon the land they are developing.

Despite facing harassment from the company, Josephine remains steadfast in her determination to protect her home and her legacy.

In a heartwarming display of support, Kyrie Irving‘s contribution to the GoFundMe campaign has provided much-needed hope and assistance to Josephine during this challenging time.

His act of kindness reflects the power of compassion and the impact one individual can have in making a positive difference in someone’s life.

I’ve been a fighter all my life,” asserted Josephine Wright, the indomitable 93-year-old woman embroiled in a legal battle to protect her cherished home.

To her, this house signifies not just a dwelling but a place of profound significance where she wishes to spend her golden years.

Initially, the actions of Bailey Point Investment Group perplexed Josephine, but soon her puzzlement turned into righteous anger.

She and her ex-daughter-in-law, Delores Wright, are both defendants in the lawsuit.

Delores, who co-owns the property with Josephine, eventually moved out due to the overwhelming stress caused by the ongoing construction near their home.

The lawsuit filed by Bailey Point alleges that parts of Josephine’s property encroach upon their land.

Despite her efforts to comply by removing a satellite dish and relocating a shed at a cost of $1,900, the company persists in claiming that her porch sits on their property.

Refuting these claims, Josephine firmly stated that her porch is at least 12 feet away from the borderline, as witnessed by herself and her neighbors.

According to them, there is a substantial 22-foot distance between her home and a road constructed by the company.

In a disturbing turn of events, Josephine revealed that the company began harassing her after she declined their offers to purchase her land.

She recounted instances of her tires being deliberately slashed and unsolicited refuse, and a snake being left on her property, further adding to her ordeal.


In response to Bailey Point Investment Group’s actions, Josephine Wright filed a countersuit, accusing them of employing a relentless barrage of intimidation, harassment, and trespassing, all aimed at coercing her into selling her cherished property.

According to her suit, Wright has endured a distressing loss of the peaceful enjoyment of her home, with her property being unjustly damaged, and she has even faced threatening behavior.

The story gained widespread attention and support when Tyler Perry, the renowned actor and philanthropist, shared Josephine Wright’s plight on Instagram in June.

In a heartfelt message, he expressed his willingness to provide any assistance necessary to aid her in the fight for justice.

This show of solidarity not only resonated with Perry’s followers but also garnered a response from Meek Mill, who aptly referred to the situation as “corporate bullying at its finest,” while hailing Josephine as a superhero for her resilience.

As the two lawsuits are set to be heard in court on September 14, the outcome remains highly anticipated.

The spotlight on Wright’s struggle highlights the importance of standing up against injustice and rallying around those in need, showcasing the collective strength that can be found in unity and empathy.
