BRISBANE Bullets star Nathan Sobey has joined the growing number of other Australian sporting stars helping raise money in the face of the bushfire crisis.
The Warrnambool export announced on Tuesday he was teaming up with his NBL club, Nike, Basketball Australia and Jayson Lamb's Splash Factory to offer some giveaways to help raise funds for the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
Sobey is donating a team-signed Brisbane Bullets jersey, a signed Australian Boomers singlet he wore at the FIBA World Cup as well as brand new Nike Kyrie Low shoes in size 12.
Two court-side seats to see the Bullets play the South East Melbourne Phoenix on January 23, a family pass to the Australian Boomers game in February, two engine swimwear backpacks and goggles, plus more prizes are also on offer.
"The devastating bushfires over the past few months have had a huge impact on our country," Sobey said in a Facebook post announcing his fundraising efforts.
"It's pretty unreal to see so many people all over the world come together and do what they can to lend a hand in this terrible time. I'd love to help as well."
The highest donor will win the signed jerseys, the Nike shoes and the court-side seats. Everyone else who donates will go in the chance to win the other prizes.
The winners of all the items will be announced after the Bulllets' game against Illawarra Hawks this Saturday night.
