As soon as he saw the images of the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti, Master Romero Jacaré decided to do something for the victims in the Caribbean nation.

The solution they came up with was an internal tournament at Alliance Atlanta, in the state of Georgia, to be held tomorrow, with all revenue dedicated to the Red Cross acting in Haiti. Besides the money from sign-ups, donations may be made on the day.

Since the call-up from the master, 106 practitioners have registered for the tournament. Besides Jacare, star featherweight Rubens Charles will perform as referee and organizer for the event.

“To make the rewards more interesting,  Jacare put together a raffle whose prize is a limited-issue leather jacket with the team emblem,” says student Bart Stevens. ”The owners of the company Lutador Grappling offered the winners’ podium and tables. The response has been so great, it will be a truly special day for Alliance.

Why don’t you join, too?
