Mark Cuban is trying to help prevent future tragedies.
On Wednesday, the Shark Tank star donated $1 million to help the Dallas Police Department better protect the city's LGBT community in the wake of the horrific shooting at Pulse nightclub that killed 49 people and injured dozens more.
The Dallas Mavericks owner's generous contribution will be able to pay for 16,000 hours of overtime for the city's police officers, that Chief David Brown will assign to boost counterterrorism efforts.
One of those efforts includes increased authority presence at Dallas' Oak Lawn neighborhood, which has a large LGBT community.
The business mogul commented on the hefty donation, saying:
"I'm proud to be able to help the City of Dallas."
"Once again, Mark has demonstrated his devotion to his city by stepping up in a time of need. In the wake of national tragedies, we often hear empty talk from politicians and other influencers. With this pledge, Mark shows he is a man of action who cares deeply about his fellow Dallasites."
Plus, Chief Brown expressed that his team will make sure his money matters, adding:
"The Dallas Police Department thanks Mark Cuban. These funds will be used primarily to protect the LGBT community. We will earmark and track the expenditure of these funds to ensure its effective use in creating a safe environment."
Thank you for taking action, Mark!
