Internet following leads to Haiti relief donation from Cribbs

By dan Published: January 18, 2010

Browns return specialist Josh Cribbs turned his Twitter following into help for Haiti on Sunday.

Cribbs announced early in the day on Sunday that for every follower of his postings by midnight he would donate $1. By the end of the day, Cribbs said he ended up donating more than $17,000.

He also said he would donate the check he'll receive for being selected to the Pro Bowl.

Cribbs wrote that he got the idea from suspended Browns wide receiver Donte Stallworth. By midnight, Stallworth reached 34,200 followers. His amount was matched by New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker for a combined $68,400.

The money from Cribbs, Stallworth and Welker will be donated to Project Mediashare, an organization started in 1994 to help health care in Haiti.
