With the Christmas season approaching, please look into your
heart to help those in need.
Hundreds of National Basketball Association basketball players in
our very own country are living at or just below the seven-figure
salary level. And, as if that weren't bad enough, they
will be deprived of pay for several weeks possibly a whole season
as a result of the current lock-out situation. But now, you can help!
For only $20,835 a month, about $694.50 a day (that's less than the
cost of a large screen projection TV) you can help a basketball
player remain economically viable during his time of need. This
contribution by no means solves the problem, as it barely covers the
yearly league minimum, ...but it's a start!
While $694.50 may not seem like a lot of money to you, to a
basketball player it could mean the difference between a vacation

hundred dollars is nothing more than a months rent or mortgage
payment. But to a basketball player, $700 will almost replace his
Your commitment of less than $700 a day will enable a player to
buy that home entertainment center, trade in the year-old Lexus for
a new Ferrari, or enjoy a weekend in Rio.
HOW WILL I KNOW I'M HELPING?
Each month, you will receive a complete financial report on the
player you sponsor. Detailed information about his stocks, bonds,
401(k), real estate, and other investment holdings will be mailed to
your home. You'll also get information on how he plans to invest
the $5 million lump sum he will receive upon retirement. Plus upon
signing up for this program, you will receive a photo of the player
(for a signed photo, please include an additional $50.00).
