Hope for Haiti Telethon is HUGE!

21 January 2010



George Clooney and Wyclef Jean are organizing the largest charitable effort ever. “Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief” airs Friday at 8 p.m. ET/PT and 7 p.m. CT on MTV and many other networks. All proceeds from the telecast will be shared among five relief organizations actively operating in Haiti: Oxfam America, Partners in Health, the Red Cross, UNICEF and Wyclef’s Yele Haiti foundation.

The telethon is attracting the A-list, the Who’s Who in film, television, music, and public service. Mega-stars like Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt, Robert Pattinson, Will Smith, Julia Roberts, Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Muhammad Ali, and former president Bill Clinton have joined.

According to some sources, Madonna will join musicians such as Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Jay-Z, the Jonas Brothers, David Archuleta, and many more acts.

Many more celebrities have pledged their support and promised to take part in the telethon, including Tim Allen, David Archuleta, Alec Baldwin, Kristin Chenoweth, Sacha Baron Cohen, Cindy Crawford, Vanessa Hudgens, the Jonas Brothers, John Krasinski, Jack Nicholson, Charlize Theron, and Ashley Tisdale.

“Hope for Haiti Now” musical performances will be available for purchase and download at iTunes, Amazon.com, and Rhapsody for the benefit of Haiti relief funds.

Here’s hoping Haiti will get all the support necessary! AND, selfishly, I hope to hear David Archuleta sing! If David’s voice is included in the The “Hope for Haiti Now” CD, surely more funds will be added to the coffers.

(However, David has been tweeting that he has a throat problem and sounds like a frog, so he might not sing.)
