NBA Cares Family in support of UNICEF, World Vision, Red Cross and other organizations are mobilizing to aid communities and people affected by the super typhoon. 

The NBA has contributed more than $2.2 million in support of Typhoon Yolanda relief efforts, including a $250,000 donation to World Vision in November by the NBA and the National Basketball Players Association.

The Los Angeles Lakers also contributed $150,000 that was accepted by the Jr. NBA Philippines All-Stars when they visited LA as part of their NBA Experience trip last November 2013.

NBA legend Derrick Alston and WNBA legend Allison Feaster visited Leyte and Cebu City last August to donate books and basketballs, and participated in school construction and tree-planting activities.
