The stories coming in of those with a connection to the world of sports making early contributions to relief efforts are not surprising, but that does not mean they should not be acknowledged.
From ESPN – “Dominican-born baseball player Miguel Tejada is sending supplies and the New York Yankees are donating $500,000 to rescue and relief efforts.”
From SI.com – “The Colts announced in a news release Wednesday that they will donate donating $10,000 to the American Red Cross relief effort and they’re asking fans to pitch in, too, by text messaging “HAITI” to 90999. A $10 donation will go to the Red Cross and the charge will appear on the user’s cell phone bill.”
From SI.com – “Lance Armstrong’s Livestrong foundation pledged $250,000 to Partners in Health and Doctors Without Borders and the cyclist posted a video message on his Web site from Australia, where he is preparing for the Tour of Australia.”
If you here of any other such efforts, please let us know and we will highlight them here. Thank you.
