Help for Haiti - MLB and more donate!

I heard on the radio this morning that Major League Baseball donated $1,000,000 to the relief of the Haiti earthquake. Lance Armstrong donated $250,000 to Partners in Health and Doctors Without Borders who will make an immediate difference in the aid that is already in progress. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are also donating $1 million to Doctors Without Borders. The Yankees donated $500,000. They hope their donation will inspire their fans to do the same. Chad Ochocinco of the Cincinnati Bengals is talking of racing Chris Johnson of the Tennessee Titans. The loser will donate his Pro-Bowl salary to help Haiti. There is talk of Tiger Woods donating a cargo plan equipped with a hospital but I have not been able to confirm this.
**Update, apparently he has not donated this, but has decided to support groups that provide resources to children.**
As it is, there has been an amazing response! How can you help?
