The LeBron James Family Foundation has been giving a helping hand to children from the third to the seventh grade. James is now extending support for the kids one step further by saying he will cover their tuition costs if they meet the requirements. A year's tuition alone at the University of Akron is around $9,500.

James also say...."I think it's probably one of the best things I've ever been apart of, this is very special to me. As a kid growing up in the inner city and as an African American kid, you don't really think past high school because it's not possible or your family can't support you.

If I can put 1,100 kids in college, that means I've done something where I can give back," he said.

1,100 kids x $9,500 x 4 years = $41.8 million. That's two seasons with the Cavaliers
