BrangelinaHaiti’s devastating earthquake has moved Hollywood celebs to rally for relief donations and open their own wallets. Actors Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were the first to reach out to Haiti by donating $1 million from their foundation to Doctors Without Borders.

Haiti-born Hip-Hop musician Wyclef Jean has raised $1 million for relief through his website. Actress Alyssa Milano on Thursday used her blog to challenge US corporations to match her donation. "I cried and then... I wrote a check to the US Fund for UNICEF for $50,000," she wrote.

While Actor George Clooney will host a telethon on MTV next week to raise funds for the victims, actor Ben Stiller and First Lady Michelle Obama endorsed a texting campaign, which called for $10 donations charged to phone bills.
