Over 10 years ago, at Lifestreams Christian Church in South Perth, these guys bonded over their love for sport and their desire to help those less fortunate.

Who knew more than a decade later they would be shooting hoops to raise money for people half way around the world?

The boys from trick-shot team How Ridiculous have teamed up with their good friend and Sonlife Africa Founder Josh Bond to raise money that would go towards a drilling rig for ongoing water projects in remote Kenya.

They have made a water sports trick-shot video, featuring Bond, which will go live on the How Ridiculous YouTube channel in the coming weeks and will include a direct link for viewers to donate.

‘We want our fans to simply give $5 or more if they like towards it,’ How Ridiculous spokesperson Brett Stanford said.

‘We realize that if we can get a large proportion of the people who watch the video to donate a small amount, a little from a lot goes a long way.

‘The best thing is that we could get together, have some fun, shoot some crazy trick shots and use it to change the lives of people living thousands of kilometres away by inspiring those watching to give generously to an amazing cause,’ he said.
