Lakers big man Pau Gasol
told CrowdRise.comfor every point he scores on Friday against the Golden State Warriors he will donate $US1,000 to the Phillipines relief fund.
“Children are suffering in the Philippines” Gasol said. “I am helping UNICEF raise money for their efforts on the ground…I am pledging $US1,000 for every point I score at the Lakers game on Friday (November 22nd) to The U.S. Fund for UNICEF.”
His chartiable act inspired Phil Jackson to join in too:
Gasol is averaging 13 points per game. He scored 12 points against the Warriors the last time the Lakers played them in the second game of the season.
