Ray Allen was on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition last night in a special episode to combat bullying. 11 year-old Carl Walker committed suicide due to relentless bullying two years ago. Ray was part of the effort to build the Walker family a new home in Springfield, so they didn't have to cope with the horrible memories of what happened in theirs any more.

We've got a few clips here, though, that feature Ray. In the clip above, he kicks off a charity race/walk to raise money and awareness for anti-bullying campaigns.
We've also got a couple of clips after the jump.
1st: Ray donates some of the original Boston Garden parquet of part of a young child's new bedroom, as well as a signed Larry Bird basketball for part of the decoration. The clip is a bit cheesy, but it's still cool to donate that stuff.
2nd: The finished product. This kid got a Boston sports themed room, and those pieces of the parquet floor became part of a Murphy Bed. Ray shows up again to help the kid christen his new in-room court with a dunk. I'll be honest… I'm a little jealous. It looks like the coolest room ever. I totally want it. And I'm not saying it in a "I wanted that as a kid" way. No. I want it now.
Cool stuff from Ray (as usual).
