More Than a Game

I'm sure all around the world people have heard about the immense damage and destruction the fires have caused to not only the people of Australia, but the wildlife as well. Our country is in dire need of help and I for one am not going to sit by and watch. I ask everyone who sees this to help as well, even if it's just by sharing this fundraiser and telling your friends. 

For my part in this great cause. I am working with Coburg basketball association to set up a Youth League Men's and Women's double header, there will be two days of games, the first being the Youth Men and Women of Coburg travelling to Frankston to play off. 
The second day, will be the Youth Men and Women at home at Coburg stadium against the Melton Thoroughbreds.
In the men's games I will be playing, and donating $10 per Three Point Shot made in the game from either team. On top of this I'll match the amount of money raised from the community and donations of the events up to $500.

Over 450 million defenseless animals have fallen victim to these devastating fires. Their homes and families, much like ours, are being torn apart with little they can do about it. Please help me to help them when they can do so little to help themselves.
