    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.

    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.

    @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 :/

    Naomi Says:

    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”.
