When George Clooney picks up the phone and asks his colleagues for help, it seems folks come a running from every walk of entertainment. From Madonna to Daniel Craig, Jennifer Hudsonn and Taylor Lautner to Mel Gibson and beyond… That’s clout! And it’s amazing to see it happen.
There is little to be said about last night’s “Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief“, that hasn’t already been stated, so I won’t even try to come up with some double entendre, glib comment or slight innuendo. Just don’t go thinking it will be common practice henceforth.
It’s just a good cause asking for desperately needed aid for a country that, on a good day, can use help. Throw in this massive quake, which has left the nation devastated, and they not only need global aid but everything else the world can spare.
I of all folks know it is hard to give when you barely have enough yourself – but as Stevie Wonder attested while manning the phones on the program, “a whole lot of littles make a whole lot of lots.” Give whatever you can spare.
