Microsoft Charlotte Employees Help Out After Tornado

Some of you may or may not be aware that this past week-end Charlotte experienced a Tornado where a 7 year old little boy by the name of Jamal  Stevens was thrown  350 Ft away from his home landing on the side of the interstate. Jamal who is a twin, suffered only minor injuries where he and his sister where released from the Hospital today.  Jamal’s biggest concern was that his beloved Xbox Video Game Console didn’t survive the storm.  After reading the story there has been an outpour from Microsoft Charlotte Campus Employees wanting to purchase Jamal a new Xbox Console.  Special Thanks to Lex Thomas, Principal TAM and Leonard Ross, Sr. Technical Account Manager from the Services Team, Jamal received a new Xbox 360 Kinect , six Xbox games, a Xbox Live Subscription and a Microsoft Kids Sweatshirt.
