take that rosie o’donnell. all that talent on the telethon actually brought in the dollars. next time keep your mouth shut

I like humanity right now.

When will they do Hope for America to help all those in the US without jobs, in need of medical care and whose homes have been foreclosed on?? There are plenty of people right here who need some help!!

That is so awesome. The company I work for took calls for the program and we raised $2 mil.

AWESOME!!!!!

great job guys¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ go haiti¡

please someone can tell me the name of every celebrity who attended the telethon

good job, that’s amazing! What I want to know now is HOW MUCH is going to Haiti disaster relief???

@lexy:

How about YOU get off the computer and YOU do something about a cause close to YOUR heart, and leave others to practice their good-will as they see it.

That is great! I wonder how much it will cost to rebuild Port-Au-Prince.

I cant help but notice that if each person in that telecast had given 250 000 each, that it would be close to the amount raised.

The USA needs to help the homeless and hungry in their own country as well as Haiti.

@Neil:

Lexy does make a point. Charity does start at home, too.

@lexy: you really wanna compare what is going on in haiti with that? i’m not even say anything else. it’s comments like yours that make americans look stupid, ignorant and self-centered to the rest of the world.

58 million for a population on 300 million thats not very good :/

The states only raised 58 million?!!?? are you kidding me? Canada has a population of 30 million and canada raised around 19 million. The USA has a population of 300 MILLION! and only 58 million. It makes me sick because every celebrity in that room on those telephones have a net worth of billions and billions of dollars and here they are preaching to the general public to donate when they have 5 houses in different countries in different parts of the world. I mean its nice that brad and angie donated 1 million but considering they make around 20 million or whatever a year that is pretty pathetic.

@***: People do what they can. Money is never enough. The clever thing is to be able to deal with what we have. We all try to help, to do something for Haiti and although we know that the money we raise is never going to be enough, we try and we bring some relief to the victims. It’s better than just sitting in front of the computer and critizing the efforts because “it’s not enough”.
