Tiger Woods' Publicity Stunt: Donates $3 Million To Haiti

Tiger Woods' Publicity Stunt: Donates $3 Million To Haiti

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A day after the record mogul (Russell Simmons) tweeted that Tiger Woods was earmarking $3 million for earthquake-ravaged Haiti, the Tiger Woods Foundation confirmed that the scandal-plagued athlete will be contributing to relief efforts in the Caribbean nation."http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/b162422_tiger_woods_back_being_one_of_good_guys.html

Millions of Americans have responded to the disaster in Haiti by opening their hearts and their wallets to help the stricken island nation of Haiti. I know some persons who are barely getting by on unemployment benefits who have donated money to help the relief effort in Haiti.

These good-hearted Americans deserve our praise and admiration, but I have nothing but contempt for Tiger Woods` meager donation. The disgraced golfer is perhaps the wealthiest athlete in the world, three million isn`t even pocket change for him. The scumbag should have privately donated at least 30 million.

Tiger Woods is just trying to buy his way back into the good graces of the American public. It ain`t going to work! Tiger`s publicity ploy is so transparent, that it`s going to backfire. I didn`t think it was possible, but my contempt for Tiger is even greater now.

Shame on Tiger Woods! Let`s pray that he never sets foot on a golf course again!
