News doesn't get better in Haiti

In one of what are surely hundreds of sad stories stemming from the Haiti disaster, it sounds like at least 30 members of Haiti's soccer federation died in the earthquake.
In addition, the president of the Dominican Olympic committee said he was told by his Haitian counterpart that at least seven Haitian athletes from Olympic sports died.

The soccer dead included referees, coaches, administrators and medical officials, the Caribbean Football Union said. Haiti's federation's headquarters collapsed during last week's quake.
If there's any positive, it has been the worldwide effort to help.

I saw that Kaka and Zidane were slated to participate in a match to raise money in the relief effort.
