Naomi is doing what she can to help those affected by the 7.2 earthquake in Haiti.

She has pledged that she will donate her prize money at next week’s Western & Southern Open.

I’m about to play a tournament this week, and I’ll give all the prize money to relief efforts for Haiti.  I know our ancestor’s blood is strong. We’ll keep rising.”
