NBA, union to join with UNICEF to aid
NEW YORK -- The NBA and its players' association will contribute $1 million to support the relief efforts in Haiti.
They said Friday they would join with UNICEF and other relief agencies to provide assistance, and Haiti native Samuel Dalembert of the Philadelphia 76ers has taped a public service announcement for UNICEF encouraging fans to contribute.
Dalembert will address the crowd before the 76ers' home game Friday and make a $100,000 donation to UNICEF. He will also match the donations made by fans at the game.
