Celebrity Telethon Raises Over $57 Million for Haiti (Video)

clooney-on-haiti-telethon.jpgGeorge Clooney created the “Hope for Haiti” telethon, assembling an all-star cast to fill two hours of commercial-free programming.

From the start of the telethon, when musician John Mayer called in a pledge of $500,000, the money came pouring in, raising more than $57 million as of Sunday.

Scores of celebrities took phone calls from average donors, and performances were taped for later sales on iTunes to raise even more money.
