Anyone who knows me knows how much I admire people who discover their talent and somehow use it to benefit others. In the celebrity sphere, it’s the Bonos, the Oprahs and the Bill Gates who win my attention in their use of influence and resources to improve someone else’s life – in their cases, thousands of people’s lives. To me, the Sefoloshas fall in that camp. Sure, Thabo is a fierce starting player for the Oklahoma City Thunder with unfailing tenacity. But together with his wife Bertille, his impact reaches far beyond the court. Their philanthropic work with the Swiss charity organization IMBEWU has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to build after-school programs for children in Mamelodi, South Africa (see video below). Add to that their down-to-earth and unpretentious personalities and you’ve got my definition of a real power couple.
