Yo Starbucks brats! Here’s an idea–how about you kick the habit for a week and use that money to help save a life?! Yeah, you heard me.
Raising $57 million for Haiti relief efforts, George Clooney’s all-star ‘Hope for Haiti Now’ telethon left quite a mark. The total released includes money raised by phone, text and donations made via the internet. It does not include donations by corporations or iTunes, where people are able to buy the entire album for $7.99 or specific performances of the event for 99 cents each. Those funds also go to Haiti relief.
The ‘Hope for Haiti Now’ CD is the biggest one-day pre-order in the Itunes history.
People can donate via text, phone or through the ‘Hope for Haiti’ Web site for the next six months.
