Got this announcement from our friends at the NBA and thought it was well worth passing along. Fresh ball, good cause…

The League explains:

“As part of this year’s Season of Giving, the NBA, in partnership with Spalding, will conduct our inaugural NBA Cares Snowflake Auction to raise money for NBA Cares partners.

With only a limited amount available for purchase, this themed basketball is sure to become a collector’s item.

Each team will receive a snowflake ball which they will have autographed by each player on the team.

On December 25th, teams will include un-autographed balls in a ‘gift exchange’ on court with local children. The autographed balls will be auctioned off on NBA.com beginning on Christmas Day.”
