George Clooney and Leo DiCaprio give $1m to Haiti

Friday January 22, 2010

Following Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's $1 million donation towards earthquake relief in Haiti, George Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio have also dug deep into their own pockets to help.

Both the stars have met the Jolie-Pitts' generosity, each giving a further $1 million each.

George will make his donation to the Hope For Haiti telethon, which he is hosting on Friday evening.

And Leo has pledged his money to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. The money will support near-term assistance and long-term recovery efforts after the disaster.

"I thank Leo for setting a wonderful example for all Americans of helping a neighbour in need," said former president George W Bush.
