    i think it is really lovely how george clooney has rallied all these stars to help man the telephones for the haiti appeal fund, especially gerry. i also think it is terrific how some of them have pledge a lot of money over 5 years to help with the rebuilding of this country. i suppose really the amount some actors get paid per film, they can afford to do this, even though its their money and well earnt its lovely they are thinking of others less fortunate. i believe some of them have also auctioned their outfits from the golden globes for the appeal as well. well done to them all and hats off.
