Travolta Flying Medical Supplies To Haiti
Actor Teams Up With Halifax Health To Assist In Relief Effort

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- John Travolta on Monday will fly his Boeing 707 to Haiti, taking medical supplies to victims in the earthquake-ravaged island country.

Travolta, who has starred in Pulp Fiction and other blockbuster movies and lives outside Ocala in Jumbolair Aviation Estates, teamed up Halifax Health to aid in his relief mission.

The medical center collected much-needed medical supplies, including several pallets of tetanus vaccine, IV solutions and sets, crutches, plaster casting supplies, surgical gloves, bandages, masks and gowns.

"There is such a tremendous need in Haiti right now and it really is important to do whatever we can to provide assistance," said Ann Martorano, chief marketing officer of Halifax Health. "Halifax Health as an organization continues to look for opportunities to assist in the relief efforts and we are especially proud of our physicians and employees who both individually and corporately have stepped up to offer their money, skills and time to the people of Haiti."

Other organizations, including Medline, also contributed to the relief effort.

More than 150,000 were killed in the earthquake, and hundreds of thousands of people have been left homeless, according to the Haiti government.

More than 80 flights carrying nearly 7,000 evacuees have landed at Sanford-Orlando International Airport.

OK. I admit it. John Travolta is my secret crush (right after Johnny Depp) I think he is a really cool guy, and his fam is great. So sorry about his son, by the way, and the anguish they will go through with another trial...... But I still can't understand the Scientology thing! No two ways about it, he's doin a great thing and who cares if the baptists or the catholics or the protestants or the scientologists are sending it! But, John! What is up with the whole scientology thing????? (PS: I still love you, John). kh
