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.
