Not only are they beautiful, intelligent and super speedy, but as it turns out, vampires are also quite a giving bunch. In the wake of Haiti’s catastrophic 7.0-magnitude earthquake earlier this month, “Twilight” stars have come out in full force to aid the cause. Robert Pattinson (beard, and all) made a plea for contributions during MTV’s “Hope for Haiti Now” telethon, while costars Taylor Lautner and Anna Kendrick answered phones. Tinsel Korey took to MTV.com to voice her support for the telethon and Kellan Lutz was spotted donating a basket-full of clothes to a donation center. Now, fans can bolster their efforts simply by going out to a ball game.
“Twilight” stars Chaske Spencer, Alex Meraz and Tyson Houseman are teaming up for a special round of Cajun-Style Vampire Baseball in New Orleans on March 20 to aid relief efforts in Haiti. The cast will pitch against a slew of Big Easy celebrities including New Orleans Saints players Kyle Eckel and Lynell Hamilton, in addition to vamp movie veteran Wayne Douglas Morgan, who starred in “The Vampire’s Assistant.”
Tickets for the game start at $25 (there’s a hot tub option for $55!) with proceeds going to the American Red Cross and Hope for Haiti Now, among others. Another kind of bloodsucker—a phlebotomist—will also be on hand for a blood drive. A meet-and-greet with the stars and a party/
concert will follow the game.
