The Baltimore Ravens are pitching in to help the South Asia tsunami victims and are giving Ravens fans the chance to do the same at Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins at M&T Bank Stadium.

The team will donate $15,000 and match up to $10,000 collected from fans.

The money will be distributed by the American Red Cross International Response Fund. Checks can be made out to the American Red Cross.

Volunteers from the Red Cross, Ravens employees, friends and family members will collect money at the gates when fans enter the stadium.

The game is the 72nd consecutive regular season sellout in team history. (All home games since the Ravens started in the NFL in 1996.)

Officials from the Red Cross said that the money given by the Ravens and the fans will be used for food, clothing, shelter, hygiene kits, tents and mental health counseling.
