Tiger Woods announced Thursday his partnership with Justin Timberlake to create a relief fund for the Bahamas, which is still reeling from Hurricane Dorian. Woods and Timberlake also pledged to match the first $6 million given to help support relief efforts.
Both the champion golfer and Grammy Award-winning singer will work with the Royal Bank of Canada, as well as a luxury brand and a Bahamian resort in the relief effort.
“As a strong believer in philanthropy and teamwork, I’m excited to partner with my friends @jtimberlake, #NEXUSLuxuryCollection, @rbc and @albanybahamas to establish the ONE Bahamas Fund in support of Hurricane Dorian relief, recovery and rebuilding efforts”, Woods said in a series of tweets.
The official death toll in the Bahamas stands at 50. Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said he expects the number to significantly increase.
While the rescue and relief efforts continue in the Bahamas, I’m joining the One Bahamas Fund (with @tigerwoods, @rbc, and @albanybahamas) to help raise money and support for the restoration and rebuilding of this island and its community. The damage and devastation the residents are facing after #HurricaneDorian is unfathomable so we’re matching dollar for dollar the the next $6 million raised. If you give $1 we’ll match it so we can hopefully turn that $6 million into $12 million, together.The Bahamas is a really special place to me. I’ve spent a lot of time there over the years, both with my family and in the studio so I want to do all I can to help and I hope you will too.Please repost, spread the word, and give if you can.
