Schumacher donates 10 million

Schumacher donates 10 million dollars
To Asian tsunami victims




A generous donation by Schumacher


Seven-time Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher has donated 10 million dollars to the victims of last week's Asian tsunamis, his manager Willi Weber said during a German telethon on Tuesday.

"The dawning of the New Year has not been as joyful for us this year because of the catastrophe in Asia. We sympathise with the victims in their grief," Schumacher said.

The death toll from the massive December 26 earthquake and resulting tidal waves around the Indian Ocean neared 146,000 Tuesday

He does this sort of thing a fair bit. Good to see.

He's a champion in more ways than one, plus he's got plenty of money.

But he's a good guy either way.

Re: Schumacher donates 10 million

It was on the news today. They said that Germany Donated 680m and Shu donated 10 million. They did not clarify if it was Euros, US dollars or what.

Still good on him for donating.
