This release just came in from the Red Sox:
Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz today announced that he will donate food and medical supplies to support those affected by the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti this past Tuesday.
“I am saddened for my Haitian neighbors who have suffered through this natural disaster. Millions have lost family members, their homes and the little they had,” Ortiz said. “I encourage fans, not only from Boston but from all over the world, to donate to this cause, as I have, and help the victims of this terrible tragedy. We should come together to support those who have endured this devastation and remember to never take our lives and good health for granted.”
Red Sox fans interested in donating through the team charity can do so through the Red Sox Foundation by logging on to Red Sox Foundation.org. Beginning later this evening, donations can be made online via credit card, by text or by mail via check/money order. Checks should be made out to “Red Sox Foundation/Haiti Relief” and sent to Red Sox Foundation, 4 Yawkey Way, Boston, MA 02215. Also, for the next 60 days, all text donations received by the Red Sox Foundation will automatically be dedicated to this cause. Instructions for text donations are available through the RSF website.
