Zayde Wisdom has a lot of class. He grew up in poverty in Weston, and his family struggled to get by. You could celebrate him, then, spending his first big cheques from the Philadelphia Flyers on something that would be a hell of a lot of fun.
Instead, Zayde Wisdom gave $5,000 to the local Salvation Army.
What a guy.

Wisdom told the OHL, “I have a lot of tough memories, so my goal one day is to just help as many kids as possible from struggling growing up,” he said, “ I just want to give back to the community that gave so much to me.”
