Vegan Athlete Helping Haiti

Georges Laraque and the Montreal Canadiens hockey team donate money for Haiti relief.

Last week, vegan professional hockey player Georges Laraque and his Montreal Canadien teammates announced they are donating $100,000 to Haiti for earthquake relief. Laraque's parents were born in Haiti, and the athlete has relatives that have yet to be located on the island. With hockey teams soon taking a hiatus for the upcoming Winter Olympics, Laraque is now considering spending his downtime helping with relief in Haiti. Last Thursday, Laraque scored a goal against the Dallas Stars and dedicated it to the people of Haiti. On his official website, he is asking fans to donate money toward relief.
