Pau Gasol Plans to Donate More Money to the Philippines

pau_gasol_2013The devastation suffered by the Philippines from Typhoon Haiyan this month has compelled various levels of response and aid from nations and organizations around the world. Not surprisingly, the NBA and its players union have been major contributors, donating a combined $500,000 to efforts focused on helping the hundreds of thousands of people affected by the disaster.

Now, one of the NBA’s most charitable players will make his own donation based on his performance Friday.

As announced on the charity website CrowdRise.com, Los Angeles Lakers big man Pau Gasol will donate $1,000 for every point he scores during his team’s home game against the Golden State Warriors.
