Tiger Woods Donates Supplies To Haiti?

Tiger Woods is donating a plane full of supplies to Haiti, according to hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons.

This pledge would be in response to the devastation caused by the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck on Tuesday (January 12).

Russell said on his Twitter page, “Tiger Woods is doing something AMAZING!!!! I heard [he's] donating to send a cargo plane with a mobile hospital out there. Keep ur prayers high!”

Reps for Tiger could not be reached for comment.

    Oh so this is how Tiger is going to repair his damaged rep? No, no, no. You give to give, and if you mean it, do it, don’t have Russell Simmons twitter it. Sandra Bullock gave a million dollars to the sunami victims and no one knew about it until much later.

  • meh

    Nice if it’s true, but he’s still a douche.

  • Jay

    About time this sell out did something for others rather than trying to fit in with the establishment. Hopefully his Becky crises has humbled him

    Even if it is P.R. I’m hoping this idiot starts to understand who he is rather than run from it.

  • sundus

    Thats good of him!!Keep it up!

  • zzzz

    …and Russell SImmons is donating to the “Please Love Tiger Again ” relief fund, which makes him a douche, too.

  • Tiger Woody

    the only thing he’s used to donating is his one-eyed willy

  • Liz

    lol “wooow hes such a good guy* – is that what were expected to think now?
    plz.z

  • anon

  • SMH

    Well good for Tiger.

  • rock_chick_chic

    wtf is up with everyone hating him? it is because he had an affair? wtf loads of people have affairs who the hell cares if he does aswell it doesnt do anything to us.

  • ace11

    he still cheated on his wife

    bad guy

  • Just Stop

    I’m glad Tiger did that in the wake of all the negativity…

  • Haha..

    Trying to forcibly up his karma points! Hahahaha.. LOL!

  • Janeth

    Finally he does something good! but I am not going to bash him like other people because even though I don’t agree with all the none sense that he did I am not perfect nor is anyone else… So no one can talk shi*!!!

    thank you….

  • http://seriouslytoo.com happy girl

    wow. that’s amazing…

  • jo

    Does it matter why he did it? People who desperately need the help will benefit. Period.

  • jo

    BTW for Canadian readers…the Candian government is now matching any funds donated to approved organizations up to 50 Billion. Good time to donate some lattee money if you have it.

  • anon

    None of us is all good or all bad. Not condoning his actions at all but he does have a proven history of donating and supporting charities. This was not a press release by his people or him. Im sure Haitian’s wont care who the help or money comes from…only that it DOES.

  • please

    how many of the people here are donating 5% of their net worth? tiger is doing something important. help is help & i think those of who can give whatever they can are great people.

  • http://justjared runnergirl

    Anyone who would choose Rachel over Elin is a moron.

  • GoBack

    It’s great he’s doing this but I hate the fact that russel simmions make sures he lets it be known to the world he’s doing it in order to help repair his image… this tradegy is no about tiger or a platform to repair images

  • Catalina

    please @ 01/14/2010 at 1:46 pm how many of the people here are donating 5% of their net worth? tiger is doing something important. help is help & i think those of who can give whatever they can are great people.
    ——————————————————————————–
    Well if I had $600 million dollars I would donate too. Lay off. Some people can’t even get jobs because of this lousy economy. People do what they can do. It’s not always about money you fool.

  • betsyross

    @GoBack:

    your so right

    Elin or a whore? which shall I choose? Tiger is an idiot!

    Its good if he sent the plane of supplies to Haiti. Good for him

  • http://kennowen.blogspot.com/ ganymede30324

    Expanding his dating pool? No, seriously, good on anyone doing what they can.

  • Derek

    Whats the point of making a post about Rumored donations? LAME.

  • G.

    @please:

    Agreed! I am sure the victims aren’t going to turn down Tiger’s $ because of his sins.
    Anyone who can afford to help should help.

  • G.

    Hey JustJared.com….you should make a donation!

  • G.

    Hey JustJared….you should make a donation!

  • jo

    Typo for Cdn readers…I meant the Canadian government is matching donated funds up to 50 Million. Apologies.

  • Canadians, hah!

    The Canadian govt is just like Tiger- trying to make themselves look like heroes. Why do they have to “match” anybody? Why not just put in what they are able to? It’s all about image.

  • http://google toni

    I agree, whatever he did is from the passed, the future is what matters, at least he is helping out those whose in needs. God blessed you TW. Hope you will get back with your family.

  • eliott

    Cool. Haiti needs all the help it can get.

  • Janeth # 14, hear this

    I’m tired of people saying “none of us are perfect” in defense of Tiger. No one has said, “I am perfect, Tiger should be, too”. We don’t expect anyone to be perfect! But be is MARRIED, with KIDS, and he was running around screwing at LEAST 14 other women in a 3 year period. That is WAAAY different than having one affair and regretting it. He is disgustiing, and we, the imperfect, are disgusted.

  • anna

    What Tiger did is not in the “passed”, haha… it’s in the present. His wife is suffering humiliation, grief, stress now. His kids are without him now. His sponsors, attorneys, and publicists are scrambling as we speak.

  • Ha!

    Help is help. Who cares why he’s doing it. It’s not like he’ll ever be able to do something philanthropic again without his motives being questioned, so why not? His image is permanently damaged – it would be worse for him to NOT do something to purposely not seem like it’s a PR move, wouldn’t it?

  • please

    we don’t know what kind of agreement he had with his wife. you idiots who aren’t married have no idea how marriage works. maybe elin didn’t like sex (cuz alot of married women don’t after they have babies) that’s why he was allowed to wander with party girls OR maybe it was a marriage on paper, who knows. stop being so self righteous and judgemental americans & think about the bigger picture. if someone in my family at 33yrs was able to give a huge amount of aid to a nation in need & make a difference… i would be so proud.

  • Venom

    Thank you Tiger.

  • TA

    He did a bad thing, he’s not a bad guy. We dont know him.
    This most probably is a publicity stunt but who cares?! The people in Haiti are getting supplies and thats the important thing

  • pants on the ground

    Nice try Russell. Tiger is hiding on his boat like the little coward he is.

  • Jlene

    So tired of people putting him down, he accepted responsibility for his error and the truth is no one knows what was going on in that marraige, only the both of them know. We should not make his problems ours honestly we have enough of our own, let the settle this on their own and the damn media should stay the hell out of it, we don’t need to know what goes on in his life or any other celebs. The problems with Americans is they refuse to forget and move on and they use the mistakes as a way to gain, that my friends is GREED, that’s what America has sucum to and it’s sad for now we are flat on our face, what’s there to brag about, we owe so much money, we are the laughing stock of the nations.
    Anyway, it’s great to see him helping out they really do need the help, this is not about Tiger it’s about a country that needs help, drop all the perfections.

  • macygray

    Good going Tiger! We now forgive you.

  • Sara

    Hope he is donating for the good of others rather than trying to save his image.

    Still don’t like the man … scum in my eyes.

  • The Boohoo Sisters in Despair

    IIn the grand scheme of scheme i is OBSCENE for people to even bash him or match thios with his affairs.
    .
    You are not the one hitten ! they are people dying every seconds because they lack medecine. people have their body part cut off without anesasthesia and who don’t even have antibiotics. Their life are threaten. Prisons are broke, gangsters are on the loose and all you bitch about is his affairs ?
    .
    Now he was totally immoral for what he did to his wife but YOU ALL kidnapping this act of generosity whatver his motives are acting AS IMMORAL and even WORSE cause you put neck to neck a disgusting affairs with the death of thousands of people like their lifes didn’t even count as much as the one of a rich woman whose rich husabnd has been unfaithfull to her.
    .
    Now WHO IS DISGUSTING

  • The Boohoo Sisters in Despair

    It ain’t Tiger !!!

  • remember da truth

    I just knew that self-righteous losers would be bashing the helping of people because it came from Tiger.

    Just because he is like 75% of married people and has an affair (yes those are the statistics), doesn’t mean he’s pure evil. Most normal people are moved by the problems in Haiti and if you can, you do something about it.

  • L

    Not true! Haiti is not allowing incoming flights, including cargo. Horrible, backward country- they won’t even let us help them, and they desperately need supplies. This so-called donation from Tiger is just a lie, drummed up to make people think he’s decent. He’s NOT.

  • To: Please- nbr 36

    # 36 Please..

    Ur such an idiot! And you came up with that kind of excuse for Tiger’s idiotic behavior??

    Too many idiots here!

  • http://justjared FOXY BROWN

    Thank you Tiger. A mistake in one part of your life does not make you a bad person.
