With the death toll estimated at over 100,000, the people of Haiti certainly need as much help as they can get.

To do his part, Lance Armstrong and his LIVESTRONG foundation are donating $250,000 to help the victims of this awful tragedy.

In a video on the LIVESTRONG site, Lance said:

“I think what’s on top of everybody’s mind is the earthquake in Haiti and the devastation we all have seen on television or the newspaper or the internet. Some say more than a 100,000 lives lost.

“On behalf of Livestrong and everybody at our organization we’d like to pledge $250,000 for the relief efforts down there for two primary organizations: Partners In Health – great friends of ours doing great work in that country – and also Doctors Without Borders.

“If you’d like to help support these organizations as well go to LiveStrongBlog.org and check it out. In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone down there, from the President all the way down to the citizens to people that were either ill before or suffering now, best of luck to you. We’ll be thinking about you and live strong.”
