Sharapova donates $10,000. to quake victims

Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova, due to play an exhibition match in Thailand against Venus Williams, will donate $10,000 to help victims of the killer tsunamis that hit the kingdom, a minister said on Wednesday.

Deputy Prime Minister and tennis association head Suwat Liptapanlop said the Russian starlet, scheduled to arrive in Bangkok late on Wednesday, had notified him about her generosity.

"She informed us that she wanted to donate 10,000 dollars of her own money to the government's victim relief fund," Suwat said.

The fund, launched yesterday, had already received donations amounting to 108 million baht ($2.77 mn), according to media reports.

Although a gala dinner to be held for Sharapova and Williams would be cancelled out of respect for the unprecedented loss of life, the match scheduled for January 2 in the northern city of Chiang Mai was due to go ahead.

As Venus will be playing against Masha at the Thai exhibition, I think Venus will also announce her donation to the Thai victims after she arrives in Thailand tonight at 11pm.

Srichaphan also donated ...
about 250 USD
those who thinks Masha donated too little must feel much better...
Shichaphan is Thai and gave out his $250...

"Logan Tom" is the best!!!

Surely you jest? Maybe there is no money in tennis like some thread said a few days ago.
The australian cricket team gave 17000 AUSD, that was prize money for the entire team, there is even less money in cricket.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

I saw news and they said so...
me heard Srichaphan bought Ferrari which cost him almost $500K...
but he donated $250 ...:retard:
Even some people I know and earning like 10K a year donates more than him...
Maybe he will donate more but right now...$250

"Logan Tom" is the best!!!

Masha is generous. As we know, after winning the Yec, she donated a US$56,300 car or proceeds from its sale to the survivors of hostage-taking in Beslan.
