Yup, you read that right. Chicago Bulls MVP candidate, Derrick Rose, will donate one grand for each point he scores on Friday night against the Memphis Grizzlies. As if the growing love affair between the world and Derrick Rose hadn’t already reached monumental proportions, this latest act should really tip the scales. Fans inspired by Rose’s remarkable act of generosity can can text "Give10" to 20222 to give $10 to Japan, or can donate directly to the Japan Relief and Recovery Fund at www.directrelief.org/Japanrelief.

This isn't the first time that Rose has offered up a grand for every point in order to do his part to help in releif efforts world wide. Back in early 2010, he did the same after the devastating earthquake in Haiti. All he did that night was score 32 points, including a memorable posterizing dunk.

Go Rose! Drop at least 40 on the Grizz tonight!
