Celebrities Rake in Money for Bed Nets

kutcher-demi-moore.jpgUS actor Ashton Kutcher has pledged to donate the $100,000 he won in a bet, to help fight the spread of malaria, prompting other stars to chip in more money.

Oprah Winfrey and Kutcher’s wife, actress Demi Moore, gave $200,000 each and television-radio host Ryan Seacrest and CNN gave $100,000 each, according to Ray Chambers, special envoy for malaria to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

Ted Turner even said he’d have Ashton and Demi for dinner if they raised the money for 100,000 more bed nets.

Kutcher’s Twitter followers–1,000,000 strong–are helping.
