Rockers Pearl Jam are to donate $200,000 to the Haiti earthquake relief effort. Charities Partners in Health, Doctors Without Borders and The Lambi Fund of Haiti will be among the agencies benefiting from the cash, according to the band's website.

Frontman Eddie Vedder has also released a live rendition of Bruce Springsteen's "My City in Ruins" as a digital single to raise further cash and bandmate Mike McCready will be among the stars performing at A Hootenany for Haiti in Seattle, Washington on February 28.
