THE STORY:

I am on the University of Pretoria Basketball team while studying in South Africa for the next 5 months.  Our season starts in early March and once it does--so will the fundraising.  The idea behind it is works like a marathon.  For a marathon, you would make a pledge per some distance. 

For basketball, I'm asking for a pledge per statistic per game I play.  Points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks will be the 5 basic stats you can pledge for.  You are not limited to these stats--you could pledge per dunk or 3-pointer if you would like, to give an example.  I am only asking for a minimum of R1 per stat (R1≈.12USD) except for the dunk stat....thats a R100 minimum, or $12 USD.

So, as an example lets say in my first game I score 58 pts with 23 assists, 13 steals, 12 blocks, and 36 rebounds.  This would mean those that pledged R1 per stat would donate 58+23+13+12+16 = R122, or $16.26 USD for that game.  Now all I have to do is play like MJ and all the youth of Africa will have their right to basic human needs met.
