Report: Tiger Woods Pledges Major Haiti Relief

by at . Comments

Tiger Woods is "doing something amazing," according to reports - and that something amazing isn't Rachel Uchitel, Jaimee Grubbs, Loredana Jolie, etc., etc., etc.

Def Jam co-founder Russell Simmons Tweeted today: "I heard Tiger Woods is donating a cargo plane with a mobile hospital out there. Keep our prayers high!"

Russell is referring, of course, to Haiti, the island nation suffering from a tragic earthquake that some believe has already claimed nearly 50,000 lives Tuesday.

If Simmons' statement is true, it would be a great PR move, but more importantly an amazing humanitarian gesture. Such aid could save thousands of people.

Tiger Woods has a long way to go to repair his image, but this could be a great start. More importantly, he could help save many lives in the wake of this week's tragedy.

Fox Sports' Jason Whitlock suggested last night "if I'm Tiger, I park a luxury liner off the coast of Haiti and me and Rachel Uchitel pass out $10 mil in bottled water."

Maybe he took such advice to heart.

Rachel Uchitel, of course, was the first woman publicly outed as one of Tiger Woods' mistresses. We hope Russell Simmons' intel turns out to be true in this case.

Earlier today, we reported how Brangelina donated $1 million to relief efforts in Haiti. If you'd like to donate as well, here's just one of many sites where you can.

Hey CLB, Tiger has always given tons of money to charity, you pinhead. Maybe you'd prefer all those people's lives he will save will instead die, just so he won't look good. Idiot!

Tiger Woods paid millions to his mistresses for sex and to keep them silent. Now he is playing the role of a charitable man in order to repair his public image. How SHAMEFULL it is to use Haiti's tragedy for his own selfish purpose! Sorry Tiger, you can not fool us anymore. We now know what kind of person you are and the picture is UGLY.

First of all, Tigers "ex-wife" didnt do a damn thing to earn that money, it is not hers, it is his. He was a millionaire and the best golfer alive before he met her...She deserves absolutely nothing except enough money to care for her kids. The "woman" of the world would do alot better trying to work for themselves instead of stealing others hard earned money.

First of all, the 3 mil belongs to both him and his wife Elin at this time. So in all fairness, the donation is from the Wood's family. Lets face it, if he had been concerned about his family he would have included them in the press release. This is a move to help salvage his image. Good start yes, but the woman of the world are not so dumb.
