In the aftermath of the 7.0 earthquake that struck the island of Haiti, seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong has donated $250,000 today for victims of the quake. He also urges others to come forward and support the victims. “Over the years with political turmoil, poverty and now the earthquake it’s devastating,” Armstrong said to reporters. “On behalf of Livestrong (Armstrong’s cancer charity) we’ll be donating $250,000 to several organizations that are doing a lot of work down there, one of which is the Clinton Foundation,” he adds. “This is really when the global community has to step up and recognize that we’re very fortunate and sometimes we have to reach out.”
