You don’t have to be Mother Teresa, but if you’re an athlete (or human being) looking to go above and beyond the call in the name of public service, I’d suggest observing Warrick Dunn, who continues to set the golden standard for philanthropy long after retiring from the NFL.

Dunn’s charity, Warrick Dunn Charities, began helping single parent families find affordable housing in 1997. As the former NFL running back tweeted earlier this October, they’ve just given away their 145th home to a family in need.

He started his philanthropic work with Homes For the Holidays—a service aimed at finding housing for struggling single parent families in time for Christmas. Dunn dedicates all of his works to his late mother, Betty Smothers, a Baton Rouge, Louisiana police officer who was slain in a botched armed robbery in 1993.
