When Pau Gasol isn't averaging a double double as the Lakers starting power forward, he's spending his time as UNICEF Ambassador. Recently he helped launch the storybook app "Give a Day". Narrated by Gasol himself in three different languages— English, Spanish and Catalonian, this ebook, affiliated with PlayTales, a recognized leader in children’s ebooks, is available on the AppStore and Android Market.
Here is a video clip of Pau working on the release of “Give a Day”:
This project benefits two different UNICEF affiliated initiatives supported by Pau; The Nelson Mandela Foundation and The Hamburg Society. These initiatives have a special focus on orphaned children and especially girls, children in extreme poverty and other extreme at-risk situations. Through these initiatives, Pau has already supported the education of more than 12,000 children in Ethiopia through construction of schools, water and sanitation facilities, specialized teacher training programs and the distribution of much need school supplies and equipment.
