In the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan that struck the Philippines earlier this month, Pau Gasol is pledging $1,000 for each point he scores in tonight’s game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors. Money raised will go to The US Fund for UNICEF for its on-ground relief efforts.
Gasol encourages others to join him in pledging per point scored. Some fans decided to pledge money per rebound, assist and block, too. The game will be nationally televised tonight on ESPN, making it possible for fans around the country to see the dollars in the form of basketball stats add up play after play.
