Hoop Dreams: Barbara Bush and Dwight Howard Adorably Team Up to Film Two Literacy PSAs
She got game!
Former FLOTUS Barbara Bush hit the basketball court at Texas’ Toyota Center earlier in the week to shoot some hoops and talk literacy for a new PSA with the Houston Rockets’ Dwight Howard.
Howard helped the 90-year-old Bush around the court and even cuddled up for some sweet promotional photos – both wearing matching Rockets jerseys, of course.
The joint PSA will encourage viewers to volunteer at a school, library or nonprofit through Connect4Literacy.org, a website created by the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation, according to the organization’s Facebook.
First Lady Barbara Bush and Houston Rockets’ Center Dwight Howard have teamed up to spread the word about the importance…
“Dwight is a fun loving guy,” Neil Bush, Barbara’s son and the co-chair of the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation, told Houston’s Culture Map. “And mom is about as witty as they come at the age of 90. They were very playful. It was so cute to see this shrinking little 90-year-old with this big, tall virile guy get along so well.”
VIDEO: Who is Melania Trump and How Would she Fare as First Lady?
The 30-year-old center and Bush filmed two videos, to be released later in February on the Literacy Foundation’s website. In both, the stars ask the community to help change a child’s life through volunteering and service.
Howard’s own charity, the D12 Foundation, also focuses on early childhood education.
“Together, the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation and the D12 Foundation are slam dunking on low literacy rates in Houston and ensuring every child succeeds,” the Literacy Foundation wrote on Facebook.
