which states:

In addition to the $5000 minimum donation, guests contributed not only dollars towards the current relief effort, but also pledged to support Haiti in the long-term. Penelope Cruz gave $50,000 per year for five years toward building schools. Javier Bardem pledged $10,000 per year over 10 years and AnnaLynne McCord matched the donation. As host Haggis shared his accounts of his past week in the disaster zone and talked about APJ's commitment to building a sustainable future for Haiti, many were moved to support Haiti well beyond the current crisis. Gerard Butler, Simon Barker and his wife, Rebecca Rigg, Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig were just a few of the attendees who each pledged to give $50,000 per year for five years toward building the future of Haiti.

Thank you for posting Barb.

And at $5000 a head they're making a good buck for Haiti.

There isn't a good enough word at all.

I'm watching Extreme Makeover Home Edition, and even though they're helping people here, they still did a PSA for the Haiti relief.

I love it when the world comes together. And just think ... the Olympics are in two weeks!!!

I honestly cried when I read this. It's absolutely a beautiful thing. It really gives me hope for humanity. Sadly, there's not enough compassion in the world, but this...it just warms my heart. Not just with Gerry, although the contributions he's done alone are just beyond words of gratitude, but for everyone involved and everyone just trying to do their bit.

I myself am involved in a few charities and they're all pitching in so I've given to each one probably much more than I can afford, really. But it doesn't matter. Truth be told, my mom isn't very happy with me doing so much, but I don't think she realizes how much we even as pensioners have a LOT we can be grateful for. I see it as they need it a lot more than I do. I have a roof over my head, I have clothes, food, etc. I can live without luxuries if it means to rebuild someone's life.

Sorry, off-topic. I get gushy about stuff like this. It's just amazing, I really have no words to express the awe of it all. It's beautiful and I'm still crying.

What a wonderful generous man Gerry Butler is. I pray that the poor Island will get some honest people to run it. The beautiful generosty of all those stars deserves to have those people of Haiti taken care of by honest governing persons. My prayer is All the marvelous people who are doing this for Haiti hopefully will watch over them and protect them.

Whenever something like this happens, I'm always concerned about the oportunistic, parasites of the world ready to take advantage of the situation and get there hands on some of the money. I realize that money is the thing they need the most but it's also why I like to give stuff that's needed, like clothing, food. I'm sure they'll be needing all of this too and will be asking for it at some point in time. There will so many bogus charities set up to collect donations that people need to be on the look out. Not to mention some that may be on the receiving end over there who could relegate the money in to the wrong hands. I'm not donating money for some rich guy who has homes all over the world, to rebuild his house in Haiti, you know what I mean?

They need hospitals, medical supplies, housing, infrastructure, orphanages, artificial limbs and a host of things beyond food and clothes. Give to a charity you believe in that is hosted by people you trust. That's the same here or in Haiti. There is such overwhelming need it is almost unimaginable.

I've already given the money and I'm well aware of what they need. My hope is that they get all of these things and quickly. You can give your money to any number of trusted people, it's the one's on the other end taking it that worries me sometimes.
