The celebrity laden Hope for Haiti Now Telethon has raised $58 million in funding so far to help Haiti earthquake survivors – and the number is still growing. Donations are still being accepted online, via text, by phone or by mail.
The amount raised by the star-studded Hope for Haiti concert telethon is staggering, setting a record for the most funds ever raised from a telethon event. Donations from corporations and money raised through iTunes sales are still being added up.
The Hope for Haiti Now album is topping the charts as the number one album on iTunes in over a dozen countries worldwide and is reportedly the biggest one-day album pre-order in the history of iTunes. Individual songs from the album can also be purchased through iTunes and the album can be pre-ordered for $7.99. You can also download the full two-hour video of the telethon.
