Clemente Jr sending aid to tsunami victims. 

Apparently, Roberto Clemente Jr was going to reenact his father's aid flight to Nicaragua, when hearing about the tsunami, he diverted all the supplies and money he collected to Asia in support of the tsunami victims.

I didn't realize that he had a premonition of his fathers death before he boarded the plane, and he begged his father not to get on the plane.
"I carry the guilt to this day of not doing enough to stop him,'' Clemente Jr. said. "He said, 'Don't worry, I'll see you when I get back.'''
You can make donations in Clemente's name to: the International Disaster Fund, American Red Cross, P.O. Box 9021067, San Juan, PR 00902
