Sandra Bullock said she donated US$1 million (NZ$1.35) toward Haitian earthquake relief, and Madonna announced she gave US$250,000 (NZ$338,685) toward the effort as celebrity aid continued to pour into the devastated country.

Bullock's contribution went to Doctors Without Borders' emergency operations in Port-Au-Prince, where three of the organisation's existing facilities were damaged by the magnitude 7.0 quake.

"I wanted to ensure that my donation would be used immediately to meet the needs of the Haitian people affected by this catastrophic event," said Bullock in a statement.
Madonna's gift was to Partners In Health, a longtime medical provider in Haiti.
"I urge all of my friends and fans around the world to join me collectively to match my contribution or give in any way you can," she said. "We must act now."

Despite the controversy still surrounding his name, the scandal-hit Woods is donating $3 million for assistance in the rescue and relief effort in earthquake-ravaged Haiti.

Woods reportedly is planning to make the donation, consisting of doctors and supplies to Wyclef Jean, through media mogul Russell Simmons.

The disgraced golf pro Woods will give the weighty sum to Haiti native Wyclef Jean’s Yele foundation in the hopes of creating a mobile hospital.

"Tiger Woods is working on sending a mobile hospital with 50 EMTs to go set up a triage," Simmon tweeted.

Word is, Rus prematurely tweeted about Tiger's donation. Tiger Woods has not yet pledged any money to the ongoing relief effort in Haiti, said the head of his charitable foundation.

"We're currently researching the most effective plan to aid in the relief effort. Historically, we have found being part of the rebuilding effort to be the most effective approach for the Foundation."

Earlier Friday, Not On Our Watch, an advocacy and grantmaking group founded by George Clooney, Brad Pitt and others, donated $1 million to Partners in Health.

George Clooney, who plans to host a telethon 22 January along with other celebrities, and Lady GaGa, who announced that all of the proceeds from her 24 January Monster Ball show in New York will also go towards helping the earthquake-stricken country.

You can purchase merchandise from on the 24th – all of those proceeds will go to helping Haiti as well.

Jay-Z, U2 and Swizz Beatz teamed up to record a song to aid in the relief effort. On Saturday, producer Swizz Beats hinted via Twitter that the project was in the works. "Me, Bono, Hova, have something to say about Haiti stay tunned [sic]," he wrote. "I told you I was working on something amazing for Haiti they need us!!!!"
