Former Presidents Clinton and Bush to assist Haitian relief efforts

Former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton have agreed to help the U.S. disaster relief efforts in Haiti, a source familiar with the matter told The Hill Thursday.

President Barack Obama reached out to the past two presidents following Tuesday's magnitude 7 earthquake, effectively replicating President George W. Bush's approach when he recruited Clinton and his father, former President George H.W. Bush, to assist with relief after the 2004 tsunami in South Asia.

Their efforts will be announced in the coming days, according to the source.

First Lady Michelle Obama is also reportedly filming a Public Service Announcement encouraging Americans to donate to the Haitian relief effort.
