The UNC basketball team used the money they raised from autographed basketballs.

Each player was given a wish list of two children, as well as an $80 spending limit per child.

This year, their gifts benefited the Me Fine Foundation, a group that helps families whose children are hospitalized at UNC and Duke hospitals.
