The Houston Outlaws spread some holiday cheer last week, and in classic Outlaws fashion, their approach was a little unconventional. In a video released by the Outlaws, five players from the Houston team created clay Christmas ornaments to auction off to fans. Such creative clay masterpieces included a reindeer from Rawkus, a gingerbread man by Boink (complete with a clay Muma jersey), and a banana in a Santa hat, courtesy of Muma himself.
These, as well as Spree’s snowman and Linkzr’s Christmas tree, sold for over $200 each on the Outlaws’ 32auctions page. The proceeds will go to benefit Texas Children’s Hospital’s Cancer and Hematology Centers, providing books, toys and art supplies for children receiving treatment. According to the hospital’s website, children benefiting from these donations are often awaiting cancer treatment or a bone marrow transplant. With the total of $1,162 raised by the Outlaws, Texas Children’s could buy 166 boxes of crayons, 46 teddy bears or 262 decks of playing cards.

The Outlaws decided to sweeten the pot for their fans who donated as well. In addition to receiving the priceless aforementioned Christmas memorabilia, winners of the auction got an Outlaws jersey and a weekend pass for the Houston Inaugural Homestand. Houston’s first homestand of the season will be in February 2020.
Texas Children’s is still accepting donations and written well-wishes throughout the year. For more information about how to bring some holiday cheer to a kid’s hospital stay, visit the Texas Children’s Hospital donation page.
