With the recent disaster in the Philippines, people all over the world have been reaching out in efforts to rebuild cities and lives. Pau Gasol is no different but with his charity he’s going about it a different way in how much he’s giving.
Thanks to CrowdRise.com, Pau Gasol has made a pledge to give $1,000 for every point he makes Friday Night.
Children are suffering in the Philippines. Typhoon Haiyan—the year’s most powerful tropical storm—is the latest natural disaster to strike a country already reeling from monsoon flooding and a massive earthquake. These children desperately need shelter, clean water, medicine and nutrition.
I am helping UNICEF raise money for their efforts on the ground…I am pledging $1,000 for every point I score at the Lakers game on Friday (November 22nd) to The U.S. Fund for UNICEF. Will you help too? Make a donation now (by clicking donate to this fundraiser) OR join me by pledging $1, $5, $10, $20, or however much you can, for every point that I score Friday night. If you join me in pledging per point, please send me a tweet to let me know. Together we can help make a difference for the children of the Philippines! Your generosity will help UNICEF provide access to lifesaving care and support to millions of children in the Philippines.
No matter how much you give, its worth it, even if its a quarter, I’m sure some family will appreciate your efforts. Under this campaign, sponsoring Pau Gasol, $220 has already been raised. Take the time and click the link. This has to be the one time you want Pau to hit the court and do some damage. (We all know the NBA doesn’t really start till after All-Star Weekend)
