As you know, the Philippines were decimated by Typhoon Haiyan.  The NBA has been working with UNICEF to raise money and awareness and help those in dire need. 

Pau Gasol is working with UNICEF and will donate $1,000 for every point he scores on Friday night.  What's more important is the awareness he's raising to round up others who can help. 

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.

Head over to Pau's CrowdRise page if you want to make a donation.  

Phil Jackson also caught wind of Pau's charitable efforts and is getting in on the action.  Jax is donating $50 a point, $50 a rebound, and $1,000 for every charge Gasol takes on Friday.
