Muhammad Ali is a three-time world heavyweight boxing champion and an adoptive parent. He and his wife, Lonnie, adopted their infant son domestically. Today, championing the causes of the developing world has become a major focus of Muhammad’s life. He has been instrumental in providing over 232 million meals to the world’s hungry. Traveling across continents, he has hand-delivered food and medical supplies to such needy sites as the Harapan Kita Hospital for Children in Jakarta, Indonesia; the street children of Morocco; and Sister Beltran’s orphanage for Liberian refugees in the Ivory Coast, to name just a few. In addition to his international efforts, Muhammad is equally devoted to helping charities at home. He has visited countless numbers of soup kitchens and hospitals, and has helped such organizations as the Chicago-based adoption agency, The Cradle; the Make-A-Wish-Foundation; Best Buddies, a Special Olympics organization; Herbert E. Birch Services, an organization that runs a school for children and young adults with handicaps and a summer camp for children infected with AIDS. In 2000, Muhammad helped Dave Thomas roll out the United States postage stamp created to promote and celebrate adoption. Together, with his wife, Lonnie, they participated in the CBS Home for the Holidays television special produced to raise awareness about the United States foster children waiting to be adopted. Lonnie serves as Vice-Chair on the Operating Board of Directors at the “Muhammad Ali Center,” where she is assisting her husband in building the “Muhammad Ali Museum and Education Center” in Louisville, Kentucky. The Center’s mission is to bring tolerance and understanding among different people, communities, and nations.
