Around the holidays, it’s a great opportunity to help those in need. And if you’re looking for a great reason to give, check out the video below.

A group, Lift the Children, put together this excellent video in which Kenyan orphans re-create one of the greatest moments in NBA history, the 1987 Eastern Conference Finals. The group of children put on a show, full with fans, teams and officials.

In the about section, the group is described as follows:

GRACE CARE CENTRE is home to over 200 children. There is nowhere for them to safely access a playing field. Please help turn their dreams into reality by contributing to this campaign, so the orphanage can purchase a field they desperately need.

As of this writing, the group has raised $3.5k out of their goal of $56k. You can donate by going here.
