Today is World Refugee Day, and Cleveland Cavs forward Luol Deng marked occasion with $30k donation earmarked to help kids in his native Sudan.

"Cavaliers forward Luol Deng never forgets his roots. A refugee whose family fled his native Sudan when he was 5 years old, Deng has donated $30,000 to Save the Children ahead of World Refugee Day on Friday -- and he's asking his friends and fans to join the effort, too. The Luol Deng Foundation is partnering with Save the Children to provide critical child protection services for the 2.5 million South Sudanese children who are at risk of being separated from their families and recruited into armed groups." -- Mary Schmitt Boyer, the Cleveland Plain Dealer
