Lakers big man Pau Gasol told CrowdRise.com for every point he scores today against the Golden State Warriors he will donate $1,000 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 $1,000 for every point I score at the Lakers game on Friday (November 22nd) to The U.S. Fund for UNICEF."
His charitable act inspired his former coach 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. I'm too sure the Filipinos want him to score more points today, so do i. If possible i want him to break Wilt Chamberlain's record 100 points in an NBA game
Thank You Gasol
