The activist hedge fund manager said yesterday that his Pershing Square Foundation would wire its gift to Partners in Health today. Partners in Health offers healthcare services in the stricken country.

    Read the fine print people:
    The activist hedge fund manager said yesterday that his Pershing Square Foundation would send via cargo ship its gift to Partners in Healthcare and Beauty today. Partners in Healthcare and Beauty offers healthcare services and cosmetic support in the fashion stricken country. $1 million worth of Clinique Water-Resistant Eyeliner will embark for Haiti this afternoon; totaling almost 69,000 units.

    I bet Einhorn Donates $2mm just to upstage Ackman.

    Incidentally, Goldman also matches any donation made by its employees.

    @6 – In a related story, Ackman has been pleading with the transportation company to spinoff the Eyeliner holdings….he will likely not succeed, leverage up, and have to go without makeup for a while.

    Someone better tell the Haitians that there is a 3 year lock-up on that donation and annual liquidty with 180 days notice thereafter….I hope they can wait that long for food and water.

    THIS JUST IN – Ackman has placed this donation in a side pocket that is gated until further notice!! No food or water for these poor folks!

    If the Haitian earthquake damage comes out to be around 500 million US, how much would Buffett have charged to insure Haiti for such a disaster?
