Sandra Bullock, other stars donate to help Haiti

Doctors Without Borders announced today that Sandra Bullock donated $1 million towards the organization’s relief efforts following the devastating earthquake in Haiti. Bullock’s just the latest in a line of stars who’ve been opening their wallets to help. Earlier, model Gisele B√ľndchen donated $1.5 million to the Red Cross, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt gave $1 million to Doctors Without Borders, and Madonna gave $250,000 to Partners in Health, a Haitian health-care provider. George Clooney is set to host a telethon on Jan. 22 and Wyclef Jean, a native of Haiti, continues to raise money for relief.

    Madonna is cheap

    • 4rocket

      I know, right? Lady Gaga is performing in NYC in the 24th and she’s giving away all the profits from the tickets and merchandise to the cause, and I don’t think she’s even worth a lot of money. Guess Madonna would pony up more cash if she was guaranteed an orphan in return…

    • Tarc

      Madonna donates a ton of money to causes all around the world – far more than any other others mentioned. She’s hardly ‘cheap’, and recognizes that it doesn’t take a major disaster to mark people in need.

  • Erin

    All of these stars are cheap! I mean Brad Pitt alone makes about $20 million per film, couldn’t he have donated a little more. Frankly it’s sad that Gisele, the least high profile name of the list, gave the most money.

    • Leo

      actually Gisele made over $35 million dollars in 2009. She’s no slouch!

      And Brad/Angie were voted for something like the third year in a row as the celebs who gave the most to charity this past year. Sandra Bulloch is always first in line to give also.

      What’s Madonna’s excuse?

      • Tarc

        Madonna donates a great deal of money all the time to a great variety of causes. The real question is why is this list so short, and why does it not include TV executives and bank executives, all of which make VAST amounts of (undeserved) money in bonuses each year.

    • Linda L

      They might have given 1 million to Haiti but Brad and Angelina have donated millions to different charities through out the years.

  • tedKennedyisfinallySober

    Do you realize China only donated a million dollars?….no, not Chyna Phillips….the C0UNTRY of CHINA! These individuals people donate more than a country of a billion people!!!! This is another reason to not shop at Walmart and stop buying Chinese goods!!!

    • Jena

      Stop your whining, they are donating what they can. Do you know how many countries have not fulfilled on their aid promises(to other causes).

  • Carlitos

    Great! And my guess is Madonna will be giving some more to an actual charity, because what she gave to sounds like a bussiness.

    • %

      Maybe as a further contribution she’ll adopt one of the Hatian orphans.

  • i’m a lady

    madonna bleeds money. she probably spends more than that every month on shoes.

  • Will

    Sandra Bullock is so classy…she’s given money to pretty much every devastating world event like Katrina and the Tsunami…you stay classy Sandy!

  • shelli

    you gusy forget Madonna donated to Malawi AND opened a school over there as well. She gives to charity thank you very much.

    Brad and Angie give a ton as well, every year they give millions.

    • Stefan

      yeah and she did that because she got a child out of it XD

    • Cheap Aniston

      The question is — which srtars have a hisory of givign NOTHUINJG. Anmericans are still strugglingm yet they are giving, as always. Stars have MILLIONS. Why is it we see the SAME people’s names as those who are generous. How much have Jennifer Aniston, Sean Combs, Jay Z, Beyonce, Tom Cruise Jennifer lopez and others given? Demand that Clooney not permit any star to walk across the stage and ask poor Americans to give if THEY have not given.

  • Chappel

    There are a couple of interesting articles at thesmokinggun.com that lays out a pretty good story about how a lot of the money donated to Wyclef Jean’s charity ends up in Wyclef Jean’s bank account. Those planning on donating to his charity, Yele Haiti, might want to check it out. I applaud those celebs, and others, who have donated to Doctor’s Without Borders. That sounds like money that will be well-used.

  • Jorge

    Even if it seems (to others) that Madonna gave less money, I think the point is to give to charity! I’m sure it’s appreciated regardless of the amounts!

  • Tony

    These losers give money away because they love the publicity.

    • Stefan

      whatever the reason, it is money desperately needed, so, its better than not giving it at all

  • mishell

    I just wish with all major distasters as in Haiti,we wouldn,t judge on how much,but on how fast and how productive

  • mishell

    Why…Do we spin on who and how much, whynot on how fast and how productive???!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Linda Kelley

      What about Oprah? Anyone know if or what she has donated?

  • Cheap Aniston

    The real question is — Which stars REFUSE to give? Many people ASSUME that stars who participate in telethons have also given themselves. NOT TRUE. Many actually have the temerity to ask the working POOR to give, while they refuse to open their own wallets. DEMAND that no star be permitted to participate in the haiti telethon without first rvealing the amount THEY have give. In these trying economic times, $5 is a sacrifice for Americans out of work. NO STAR shoud be permitted to ask that sacrifice if they are too selfish to give. I’m talking to YOU Jennifer Aniston, the woman who gives USED clothing and handbags but is too CHEAP to give money.

  • Jody Albright

    Its sad that America can get a bullet, or tank, or a missle around the world in minutes as long as there getting a big profit from it,hence, OIL, from Iraq, but we cant get a forklift or crane to Haiti to pull a child out of rubble while she is still alive, but let her suffer and die where she lay, very, very sad for this country, when the poor need help, Haiti or New Orleans, 5th Ward, this country is way to slow.

  • Cathie S.

    why must you people take a major disaster and turn it into a gossip session and cut down, who cares how much they make they DONATED..question is how much did you give to Haiti??? or did you just come here to complain about those that did??
