Golden Globe winner Sandra Bullock has turned anything but a Blind Side to the situation in Haiti — and has donated $1 million US in relief aid to the victims of the Jan. 12 earthquake, people.com reports.
Bullock’s contribution matches those by George Clooney and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, reports Variety.
The trade paper also notes that Gisele Bündchen has pledged $1.5 million to Haiti, while Madonna says she has given $250,000
The gifts come as the star roster for Friday’s multi-network Hope for Haiti telethon, organized and to be co-hosted by Clooney and Wyclef Jean, continues to expand.
Among those set to perform now include Christina Aguilera, Bono, Alicia Keys, Sting and Justin Timberlake. Tom Cruise and Julia Roberts have already been announced as answering the phones during the telethon.
The special will air live from Los Angeles and New York at 8 p.m. ET on MTV, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX, and BET among other networks.
