OKLAHOMA CITY – After missing two games against the San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder fans are ecstatic to have Serge “I-blocka” back in action.
While he has said he is going to play his best for the team, it seems he is also helping a worthy cause.
Ibaka announced that he is pledging $500 for every block he makes during the 2014 NBA Playoffs to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help orphaned children in the Republic of Congo.
The money will go to raise funds for the UNICEF ‘Get Boys and Girls in the Game’ project.

Fans can also take part in the fundraiser.
Everyone who pledges at or above $2 per block will automatically be entered to win an autographed jersey and shoes.
So far, Ibaka has made 36 blocks during the 2014 Playoffs.
In total, $19,080 have been raised.
